MIC outlines plan on preparing human resources for national digital transformation

The plan ‘Raising awareness, preparing skills and developing human resources for national digital transformation by 2025, with a vision until 2030’, calls for training in skills for digital transformation, digital technology, digital services and digital business; and the building of a core force and network of specialists for digital transformation nationwide which will lead, organize and spread the digital transformation process, which will be the key factor that contributes to ensure rapid, effective and sustainable digital transformation, and successful development of digital government, digital economy and digital society.

In addition to the development of the digital transformation network at the national, ministerial and provincial levels, it is necessary to choose, train and offer practice to at least 1,000 specialists in digital transformation for different fields, branches and localities. The specialists, after being trained, will train officers at their agencies and organizations and act as the core force to lead the national digital transformation process.

State agencies, organizations and businesses need to attach importance to providing short-term training courses in digital transformation skills and digital skills to their officers, civil servants and workers.

It is also necessary to build an open online training system so as to organize open training courses in digital transformation skills, and IT application skills to civil servants, workers and people.

Teaching digital skills in education

In order to solve the problem of human resources for digital transformation, especially the development of digital society, it is necessary to teach digital skills in educational establishments at all levels.

It is expected that at least 50 percent of total education establishments from primary to high education levels will organize the teaching of subjects in digital skills, digital technology and organize STEM/STEAM/STEAME education by 2025. The figure will be 90 percent by 2030.

Vietnam also needs to promote training in digital technology, digital economy and digital society by opening new training majors, increasing the quotas for training engineers, bachelor’s degree holders and technical workers in digital technology (AI, cloud computing, IoT and Blockchain), digital technology application, digital economy (digital administration, digital business), and digital society (digital communication and digital society management).

Pioneering new movement

 

Since its launch six months ago, the national digital transformation program built by MIC has created a new digital transformation wave throughout localities, agencies and enterprises. In the process, developing human resources for digital transformation is an urgent and important foundation.

Le Ngoc Han, director of the Quang Ninh Department of Information and Communications, said the provincial authorities have been advised to list the digital transformation training programs among regular, annual training programs for civil servants at ward/commune units and higher levels.

Digital transformation will be one of compulsory modules in the training program applied to officers from hamlet, commune, and ward to district and town levels.

Thai Nguyen province has also decided that developing human resources for digital transformation will be one of the major tasks in the time to come. The province will join forces with institutes, schools, research centers, domestic and foreign partners, and cooperate with Thai Nguyen University to prepare human resources.

Many education establishments consider digital transformation as ‘converting universities into a miniature digital country’, where the teaching and assessment methods will change completely and everyone has lifetime study opportunities.

The Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology said it will continue expanding training scale and opening more training majors. In 2020, two new majors were opened, including Control Engineering & Automation (Robotic Orientation) and Fintech. It plans to open Data Engineering and IoT in 2021, and logistics and digital journalism in the near future.

At the national level, one of six issues for cooperation between MIC and the Ministry of Education and Training is joining forces to train, and build outcome standards for digital human resources.
