HANOI (ILO News) – A training of trainers on career guidance for participants from the north was organized in Hanoi on 23-24 April by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Viet Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).

The training follows ILO’s career guidance series. In 2020, ILO launched a career guidance toolkit, which includes a career guidance package for students aged 14-19 in Viet Nam and a mobile app for smart phones.

Upon the release of the toolkit, ILO cooperated with VCCI and the Institute of Vocational Education Studies to organize the first training trainers and set up a network of career guidance experts in October 2020. After the training, the master trainers continued to organize career guidance events using the ILO’s toolkit at various schools in different localities.

This second training of trainers is expected to continue to develop the pool of master trainers and the network of career guidance experts to make the ILO toolkit approachable to many teachers and students and help the youngsters make the right choice in their education path and career development.

Participants of the training were school leaders, career guidance teachers at schools, members of non-governmental organizations, and business representatives.

According to Circular 32/2018/TT-BGDT of the Ministry of Education and Training, high schools and secondary schools should organize 105 credits each school year on career orientation. However, not all schools have the career guidance tools for students.

The next training of trainers for the south will be held on 7-8 May in Vung Tau City.

These activities are carried out within the framework of the “Applying the G20 Training Strategy in Viet Nam: A partnership of the ILO and the Russian Federation (Phase 2)”.
