HCM CITY — A delegation of eight Australian organisations representing State and Territory education, as well as curriculum authorities and schools, yesterday spoke about their activities at the Australia-Vietnam School Partnership Showcase.
The event, held by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) in collaboration with the HCM City’s Department of Education and Training, offered a platform for Australian and Vietnamese education authorities and schools to exchange expertise and build partnerships.
Nguyễn Văn Hiếu, deputy director of HCM City’s Department of Education and Training, said international cooperation in the education sector would benefit the country’s comprehensive education reform.
Deep integration with international high school education is one of the solutiosn needed to address the increasing demand for school quality and employability outcomes of Vietnamese graduates, Hiếu said.
More and more Vietnamese private and public schools are seeking international partnerships to diversify education programmes for learners, educational experts said.
Australian and Vietnamese education authorities discussed how schools could organise teaching and learning activities, teachers’ capacity building, digitalisation in school management, innovative lecturing and curriculum design, and how international partnerships could help.
