Free International Standard Vocational Training Provided in Vietnam to Meet Skilled Workers Demand

To attract more engagement in skilled trades and address higher demand for skilled workers, Lilama 2 Vocational Training College is offering free three-year training courses aligned with international standard for students in Southern province of Dong Nai, Vietnam.

Situated in Long Thanh district, Lilama 2 is proudly the first school in Vietnam to be accredited as a member of European Association of Institutes for Vocational Training. This college provides international training courses certified with EQF (European Qualifications Framework).

Following their graduation, students will attain the British Accreditation Council’s qualifications accepted in the world’s 100 countries. 

According to Mr. Le Quang Trung, Vice Rector of this college, Lilama 2 has enrolled over 150 students in welding, industrial electronics and mechanical tool manufacturing in the academic year of 2014-2015.

From now to 2016, Lilama 2 plans to enroll additional 400 pupils who reside in Dong Nai.

As one of first TVET (Centers of Excellence for Technical and Vocational Education and Training) in Vietnam, Lilama 2 has a total investment of $37.6 million funded by French and German governments.

This college has also worked with Bosch Vietnam to implement a pilot dual training program in Germany for 46 Vietnamese pupils to address the higher demand for skilled workers.

Expectedly, there will be more and more vocational gradudates with specific skills entering the national and international labor market. To do so, training centers should have proper ways to attract more students and include professional training to keep students updated with ever-changing pace of technology and equip them with knowledge and skills in reply to employers’ strict demands. Students themselves should leverage those programs as a cost-effective way of chasing their welding career through specialization. Also, offshore staffing providers in Vietnam should do their utmost to find out the most appropriate workers to serve the international demand for skilled migrant workers.
