Through the Vietnam TVET Reform Program, we delivered teacher training for 350+ Vietnamese vocational teachers, developed 12 Australian qualification packages aligned to Vietnamese industry needs and implemented change across 25 vocational colleges.

Students were skilled and job-ready across a variety of areas deemed critical to Vietnam’s economic growth. These included biotechnology, mechatronics, industrial electronics, graphic design, IT software applications, techniques for electricity installation and control in industry, computer network management, and refrigeration and air conditioning engineering.

This complex project involved multiple stakeholder engagements, from project partners through to industry, teachers, college managers and students. We contextualised all training and mentoring to meet industry needs and ensured the whole program was fully adaptive to the Vietnamese environment. As the program was delivered in dual languages, students also undertook over six months of English preparation before starting their vocational programs.

The result was 25 vocational colleges uplifted capacity and now deliver internationally recognised qualifications that meet the Australian Skills Quality Authority regulatory standards and Australian Qualifications Framework requirements up to advanced diploma level. Over 350 Vietnamese vocational teachers gained a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and 727 students achieved Australian qualifications.  

The Vietnam TVET Reform Program was funded by the Government of Vietnam through the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and was implemented through a partnership comprising the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training, Advanced International Joint Stock Company Vietnam and Chisholm.
