In 2020, the Directorate of Vocational Education (Ministry of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs) signed an agreement with New Zealand’s Government to Government Know-How (G2G) on strengthening cooperation in vocational education & training and skills development.
It is a framework for sharing best practices in vocational training policy, qualification frameworks, and industry engagement.
Under the agreement, New Zealand’s Government to Government Know-How (G2G) contributes to Vietnam's workforce improvement effort by facilitating partnerships between New Zealand’s government agencies, vocational institutions, and research institutes with the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training as well as other relevant agencies and institutions in Vietnam.
Since 1992, New Zealand's national qualification framework has been one of the first comprehensive qualification frameworks in the world. New Zealand has made efforts to renovate the training system to ensure that it can best respond to the needs of the evolving industries.
New Zealand has maintained the leading position in English-speaking countries as well as the Asia-Pacific region in terms of Worldwide Education for the Future Index 2019 by Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), reported Thanh Nien newspaper.
