Australia provides English language and hospitality skills training program in Da Nang
(VNF)- Mr Hugh Borrowman, Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, has launched a pilot vocational education training program in the Central city of Da Nang.
The training will give participants internationally recognised service and culinary skills, as well as improved English skills, to help them take advantage of increased work opportunities in the region under the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the ASEAN Economic Community, especially in the tourism and hospitality sectors.
It has received AUD250,000 in seed funding from the Australian Government and will be delivered by the William Angliss Institute in partnership with Dong A University. Accordingly, around 80 participants; 60 of them in front line hospitality guest service, and 20 in culinary skills will be trained, thus helping to build a platform in Central Vietnam for internationally-recognized vocational training in hospitality and tourism.
William Angliss Institute specialises in the food, tourism and hospitality industry and has been working with the ASEAN Secretariat since 2004 on Mutual Recognition Agreements in these sectors.
Besides, this program will utilise Australia’s world-class vocational education and training expertise and builds on existing collaboration between Australia and Vietnam to help develop nation’s vocational education and training sector./.
