On November 27th, 2015, RAVTE invited representatives from the private sector, educational institutions and international organizations to discuss and share their visions on TVET. The conference was held in meeting room No.2 – 6th Floor Building, Room A1-602, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, Vietnam. This meeting commenced at 08.00 am.
We appreciate the input from international organizations, namely, UNESCO Bangkok and GIZ. Mr.Cheol Hee Kim, the representative from UNESCO Bangkok, gave some very good insights in this talk: “UNESCO Bangkok’s Strategic Target and Opportunities for Cooperation with RAVTE”. Dr. Konstanze Lang, the representative from GIZ – RECOTVET, presented ideas on the topic of “Stakeholder Dialogue and Dramaturgy (of a network). In addition, we want to express our gratification to private sectors guests, BDI (Thailand), KGIA and BOSCH Vietnam who came to share their experiences in their respective presentations: “BDI’s model of Vocational Teacher Training and Industry/Academia Cooperation”, “Blended learning approach for qualification along supply chains” and “Industry 4.0”. From several educational institutions, we had received valuable information regarding their activities on TVET development. The representative from TU Dortmund University, Dr Anne Busian and Dr. Thomas Schroeder shared their ideas on “Approaches towards harmonization of vocational teacher education in the ASEAN region” and “Perspectives for enhanced TVET policy in the ASEAN region”. Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna and Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi also presented information that demonstrated the benefit of key projects such as Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and Public – Private Partnership (PPP).
Our members have certainly gained numerous insights and new ideas that will assist us immensely in developing RAVTE. In this connection, we assure that this beneficial advice and recommendations during the meeting would be taken for further discussion and planning for our RAVTE in the future.
