Project ContextIn June 2010 at the Toronto Summit the G20 Leaders welcomed the G20 Training Strategy for a Skilled Workforce for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth developed by the International Labour Organization (ILO). In preparing this strategy the ILO worked closely with employers and workers, consulted other international organizations, and drew on the Conclusion on skills for improved productivity, employment growth and development adopted by the International Labour Conference in June 2008. In Seoul, in November 2010, Leaders pledged to support developing countries in implementing national strategies on skills for employment, building on the G20 Training Strategy.
The project is a response to interest indicated by the Russian Federation to work with the ILO in supporting the application of the G20 Training Strategy to the skills development and employment needs in a range of countries. The project implementation in Viet Nam is managed by Skills and Employability Branch in close collaboration with the ILO Office in Hanoi and the Decent Work Team in Bangkok. The project contributes to the Decent Work Country Programme for Viet Nam.
The project in Viet Nam addresses the following areas:
- The Skills for Trade component of the project focuses on skills need anticipation in the tourism sector and the seafood sector. It is preparing two reports on the skills needs in these two sectors and how the skills needs can be met, using the ILO’s STED (Skills for Trade and Economic Diversification) methodology. At the same time, the project is responding to skills needs identified with capacity building activities.
- The Moscow School of Management SKOLOKOVO, the external implementing partner of the project, has developed a tool for technology foresight in skills need anticipation and a simulation model for use in training of vocational school managers. The project is exploring the possibility of applying these tools in Viet Nam.
- Develop the capabilities of each country to improve their training delivery systems, extend better training to those who need it most, and thereby contribute to each country’s competitiveness and economic growth.
- Improve the delivery of demand-led training in the formal technical and vocational education and training system (TVET).
- Identify skills needs and develop new methods of skills foresight in economic sectors whose skills needs are significantly affected by technology changes.
- TVET institutions in the target countries improve their capacity to deliver quality training.
- Training programmes in the target countries can anticipate and meet skills needed for trade and economic diversification in the target countries.
- New TVET development tools and methodologies are created and tested in the selected target countries by the ILO in cooperation with international experts and with participation of Russian experts and institutions.
