Hanoi trains internationally qualified human resources

Hanoi's educational institutions have been considered proactive in international cooperation.

The Hanoi People's Committee has approved the project "Development of a high-quality human resources training program by national criteria and accreditation standards of Southeast Asian universities".

The project aims to assess the quality of the undergraduate training program of Hanoi University according to national standards and accreditation standards of Southeast Asian universities.

The project is one of the program's components, "Strengthening the development of science, technology, and innovation in Hanoi for 2021-2025".

Accordingly, twelve university-level training programs will be evaluated, accredited, and certified by an authorized accreditation center by 2025.

To achieve the above objective, the project offers some tasks and solutions, such as accreditation of training programs according to national standards, including self-assessment, and establishing an accreditation council to assess the quality and monitor quality improvement after the assessment.

Another solution is foreign language training for university teaching staff to carry out accreditation of training programs following the standards set by Southeast Asian universities.

In addition, the facilities and laboratories must be well-equipped to organize high-quality training programs that meet the accreditation standards of Southeast Asian universities.

Currently, Hanoi has become one of the cities with the largest number of vocational education and training institutions in the country (370). According to an evaluation of the results of vocational training in the city's education sector, the proportion of trained workers increased from 53.12% (in 2015) to 70.23% (in 2020), and the rate of workers finding employment after training exceeds 70%.

The city has been proactive in international cooperation, standardizing the training program framework by regional and international standards. Many enterprises in Hanoi have participated in training cooperation to improve the quality of human resources. Hanoi also leads the country in many national and international skills competitions.

However, the proportion of trained workers in Hanoi is only 48%. The human resources available in the market are mainly unskilled workers, and there remains a shortage of highly qualified workforce, especially in the information technology, automation, electronics, electromechanical engineering, education, and tourism sectors, among others.
