VIETNAM. TVET in Vietnam (18 January 2023) -The Digital Transformation component of the Programme “Reform of TVET in Vietnam” (TVET Programme), that commenced in 2020, prioritizes 3 key supporting areas: the policy and strategic advice, the improvement of DX literacy for staff and teachers, and the development of digital solutions for TVET partners in Vietnam. 

After more than 2 years of supporting the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET) and 11 partner TVET colleges of GIZ in the DX sector, it was time for review and discussion on the progress, key priorities and action strategies for 2023 and further. As a result, the Workshop “Discussion on results of DX activities in 2022 and key priorities for 2023” was organized to create a forum for in-depth discussion, technical exchange, and existing challenges based on key components of DX ecosystem in TVET. 

On the presentation of the smart TVET college model, Dr. Nguyen Nhat Quang emphasized that the awareness of DX of partner colleges had many positive remarkable changes.

TVET colleges approached DX based on the DX ecosystem, which was comprehensive and inclusive in the framework of the smart TVET college model. Moreover, within the community of 11 partner TVET colleges of GIZ, there were groups of core staff/multipliers being responsible for different technical fields. GIZ played a role in connection and development of the network for sharing experiences, lessons learnt, learning from each other to improve. 

Furthermore, according to the presentation on evaluation of results of DX activities at 11 partner TVET colleges, Prof. Dr. Ho Tu Bao concluded 3 main challenges in the promoting process of DX as follows: “Firstly, DX activities are uneven between 11 partner colleges. Secondly, the awareness of DX is raising, but colleges are still confused about how to implement DX in detail. Thirdly, there are not enough investment resources and human resources for DX activities.” 

Last but not least, the presentation and discussion results about the research on updating Informatics subject (MH05) based on the orientation of digital literacy training module received a great attention from participants. After 4 years of implementation, the Informatics subject faced new demands of innovation and updating to meet requirements of DX in TVET. New content related to digital tools, digital platforms, skills to work on the digital environment, methods for implementation and evaluation were significant and meaningful changes that the consultant team brought to this subject. 

Based on discussion results of working groups and recommendations/feedbacks from experts, the Workshop collected various key priorities for DX activities in 2023. Partner colleges considered enhancing e-pedagogic methods and digital literacy, upgrading digital infrastructure, platforms and developing digital learning materials as core issues to prioritize in the DX implementation process. Data and connection, as well as transforming the training content were the next focus points. The discussion results of the Workshop created an important basis for DVET, 11 partner TVET colleges and the TVET Programme in planning policies and developing key activity plans for 2023 and in the further future. 



Since 2021, 11 partner TVET colleges of GIZ have been supported in developing and operating e-learning studios to produce digital learning materials, 5 colleges have been supported with learning management systems (LMS), 4 colleges have been supported digital management systems (DMS), 2 colleges have been supported with 4 cloud server packages.

The open vocational education training resources platform (OVETR platform) has been developed and piloted to promote shared digital teaching and learning materials within the community of 11 partner TVET colleges, 3 enterprises, DVET, and TVET Programme. 

In 2022, GIZ supported key activities, including: evaluation of the process and results of DX activities at 11 partner TVET colleges, the research on developing the model of smart TVET colleges, updating of the Informatics subject (MH05) based on the orientation of digital literacy training.

Besides, 41 trainings and workshops were organized in 2022 to enhance the competence of leaders, managements, as well as staff and teachers from DVET and 11 partner TVET colleges. In particular, regarding 12 workshops on raising awareness of DX, 19 training courses on improving the competence of exploiting digital platforms, and 11 consultation meetings on DX strategies, the TVET Programme approached 1.840 participants with 399 event hours in intensive trainings, workshops and discussions
