Enhancing the Effectiveness of Vocational Education in Vietnam

Is it possible to make technical and vocational education and training (TVET) more effective and responsive to the needs of enterprises, learners and the labour market in Vietnam?

DERG and the Institute of Labour Science and Social Affairs (ILSSA) have set up a collaborative research project that will study whether two interventions-soft skills training and job counselling services-that complement an existing vocational educational curriculum, can enhance the labour market impacts of TVET.
