Business engagement to promote quality vocational training in Vietnam

Research reports

Written by Claudia Pompa


  • ​ Vietnam’s acute skill shortage represents a major challenge for the country as it tries to improve its global competitiveness.
  • Despite government efforts, the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system remains a complex one, with multiple stakeholders operating at different levels, which has led to many inefficiencies and duplication of efforts.
  • A fundamental shift is needed from quantity to quality and more and better engagement with businesses in order to achieve a demand-led TVET system that answers to the needs of the workforce and the private sector.
  • There is significant space within the system for a new player to look at successful and innovative ways in which the private sector can be engaged in TVET.
