HÀ NỘI — The Strengthening Profession-Oriented Higher Education (POHE) project has supported Vietnamese university education by connecting training with reality, said Dr Nguyễn Thị Kim Phụng, head of the Ministry of Education and Training’s Higher Education Department.
The POHE project, funded by the Netherlands Government, was developed in Việt Nam beginning in 2006. It aims to provide university training programmes that have closely-knit relations with the labour market and to provide a labour force to meet the demands of the country’s socio-economic development.
After its ten-year implementation, the project has trained about 15,000 students, according to the project’s management board.
From an initial ten programmes, the project has grown to currently run 49 training programmes in various sectors including agriculture, training, technology, management and business.
The project also created training documents and set up five training centres for lecturers at eight universities in Việt Nam.
“Sharing the project’s results and documents with Vietnamese universities will help the country to develop more reality-oriented training programmes,” Phụng said. — VNS
