Vocational training sector catches up with digital transformation trend

The reform of vocational training in association with digital transformation and information technology application has been defined as an important solution to provide high quality human resources, according to insiders.



One of the major contents of digital transformation in vocational training is conducting training activities in a digital environment, which helps improve the efficiency of management and expand training methods as well as people’s access to vocational training through the renovation of contents and measures of teaching, learning, examining and evaluating.

Pham Vu Quoc Binh, Vice Director of the Vocational Training Administration under the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs affirmed that digital transformation in vocational training is a process of integrating and applying digital technologies.

Meanwhile, Prof. Do Van Dung, former Principal of HCM City University of Technology and Education held that digital transformation is a vital factor that helps vocational training activities adapt to the current situation, reduce cost, improve competitiveness and enhance effectiveness, laying a foundation for self-reliance and mindset change of the sector and realisation of shared education.

Ho Thi Ngoc Thuy from Saigon University stressed the need to speed up digital transformation so as not to miss opportunities brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, as in the global integration period, the education and training sector in general and vocational training in particular are not outside the global trend.

One of the important solutions that have been taken by many vocational training facilities is to hasten digital transformation process and modernise their infrastructure system and equipment as well as reform their training programme. They have tightly connected with businesses in building training programmes and organising training activities as well as transferring modern training technologies.

According to the Vocational Training Sub-Committee under the National Council for Education and Human Resources Development, so far, many vocational training facilities across the country have begun to apply IT and digital training equipment and documents into teaching activities, while many have digitalised their teaching documents, and some others have collaborated with organisations outside to put into use digital libraries.
