Hanoi meets yearly target of trained workers

Trade schools trained more than 245,000 students in the first 11 months of this year, exceeding the full year's target.

Hanoi aims to bring the rate of trained workers to 72.2%, meeting the annual target, according to the municipal Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs.

Accordingly, more than 190,000 people graduated from colleges and intermediate and elementary vocational schools.

This is a good sign amid a shortage of trained workers, largely meeting the market demand.

To help them find jobs, the city will hold a conference on December 11 connecting Hanoi’s vocational schools with the labor market. The event is expected to attract about 10,000 participants, including 8,000 secondary and high school students and 2,000 students from vocational schools.

About 40 employers will join the job fair.

In another move, in the first 11 months of 2022, trade schools trained more than 245,000 students, equivalent to 109.3% of the year’s plan and representing an on-year increase of 27.9%.

Hanoi is home to 360 vocational schools, including 69 colleges, 59 vocational secondary schools, 54 job training centers, and 128 other educational establishments.

Recently, the city set a plan to train 230,000 people each year. The rate of trained workers will reach 75-80%, of which trained workers with degrees and certificates will reach 55-60% by 2025 and over 60% by 2030. 

 

According to the plan, the proportion of workers with information technology skills will reach 80% by 2025 and 90% by 2030.
