Vietnam and the UK inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on promoting vocational training cooperation between the two countries in Hanoi on Tuesday.

The MoU aims to create a legal framework for bilateral cooperation in vocational training, contributing to realizing the goal of vocational education development in Vietnam, and promoting the bilateral strategic partnership between the Southeast Asian country and the UK in the time to come.

Under the deal, the two sides will share professional knowledge on vocational education, support the development and implementation of sustainable vocational education policies, and share experience in improving the quality of vocational education and increasing the involvement of businesses to ensure supply and demand in this field.

Cooperation in improving the capacity of administration, leadership, teaching, and capacity assessment at vocational training facilities; promotion of digital technology in online training; improvement of vocational training institutions; and development of a database system on vocational training are also key contents of the MoU. 

In addition, both nations will foster partnership between their vocational training facilities, mutually recognize certificates and training programs within the framework of vocational training and, implement language programs in line with the sector. 

Addressing the event, Vietnamese Minister of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs Dao Ngoc Dung spoke highly of assistance from the UK in recent years, particularly in vocational training via the British Council, the Vietnam Government Portal reported. 

Vietnam is currently home to 1,929 vocational training facilities, the VGP cited Dao as saying.
