The local media, including VietNamNet, has reported problems related to the regulations on the use of training certificates for public employees, especially teachers of public training institutions, in promotion exams and appointment to professional titles of public employees.
On March 19, Minister and Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung signed a document to the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Education and Training, which ordered the two ministries to submit reports on the issues to the Prime Minister.
Accordingly, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc requested to consider amending and supplementing Decree 101/2017 of the Government on training and retraining of cadres, civil servants and public employees and other relevant regulations.
The Prime Minister instructed the Ministry of Home Affairs to coordinate with related agencies to review and report in detail about types of certificates for public employees. The Ministry was asked to state clearly what types of certificates that public employees must have to be promoted to professional titles and which certificates are for professional training, and classify compulsory and non-mandatory certificates in the management of public employees.
The Prime Minister also requested the Ministry of Education and Training to report in detail the similar content for the professional titles of teachers of public education institutions at all levels. The Ministry of Education and Training was asked to propose a plan to amend and supplement relevant regulations.
Related ministries were asked to propose specific plans and report the issues to the Prime Minister in March.
Will the requirement on certificates for professional titles of teachers be removed?
A representative of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) says the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) needs to show its official view about whether to remove the requirement on a certificate for professional title and why.
