HÀ NỘI — Professional skills training has been provided at 14 universities, three home affairs departments and three education and training departments across the country over the past four years.
The project, run by the Facility for Capacity Building (FCB), came to a close at a ceremony in Hà Nội on Friday.
Aiming to improve Vietnamese personnel, it was co-implemented by the Belgian Development Agency (Enabel) and the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training MoET.
The project received 6.2 million euros (US$6.9 million) from the Belgium Government. MoET paid for office space and personnel.
Under the project, more than 2,000 officials, 42 per cent of whom were women, received training on management, educational assessment, technological transfer and personnel development via conferences, field trips and courses.
The project offers 27 scholarships for master training in Belgium.
Nguyễn Thị Toàn Thắng, deputy director of the Bình Thuận Department of Education and Training, said that the project supplied important support on information and technological transfer for Vietnamese human resources.
Đinh Thanh Hải, deputy principal of the Hà Nội University of Pharmacy, said the project had helped improve skills and knowledge in the sector for the university’s managers and lecturers.
It had provided a good foundation for the university in international integration, she said.
Following the project, the university would continue to run training courses based on national norms for pharmacists after graduation, said Hải. — VNS
