Binh Thuan to focus on vocational training for people of ethnic minorities

BTO-Over the past 10 years, vocational training for labor forces in rural areas, especially in ethnic minorities areas, has been considered as one of important factors to help households improve income and escape from poverty. Therefore, the provincial committee for ethnic minorities affairs (the committee for short) has coordinated with vocational training facilities to enhance the quality of training so that trainers can earn living by themselves.

During 10-year- implementing Decision No.1956 QD/TTg dated November 27, 2009 of the Prime Minister approving the scheme on  vocational training for rural laborers up to 2020, the committee has carried out training programs to improve professional quality for grassroots cadres in extremely difficult communes. The communes’ cadres have cooperated with the committee to hold many vocational training courses for hundreds of young people aged 16- 25 (techniques on growing and caring  dragon fruit trees in line with the VietGAP standards, caring and harvesting rubber latex…). At the same time, 34 training courses on improving leadership ability and management skills for cadres of hamlets, communes under Program 135 phase 2 were opened for over 1,700 learners. The provincial center for mountainous services in coordination with the provincial center for agro-fishery encouragement opened training courses to transfer applications of scientific-technological advances as well as introduce cultivation and husbandry techniques for ethnic households, with the participation of more than 202,000 people. In addition, nearly 4,000 people took part in training courses on the models of growing hybrid corns, wet rice and raising livestock.

Under the Decision No.35 of the provincial people’s Committee, the provincial committee for ethnic minorities affairs has coordinated with Binh Thuan Vocational College to recruit 250 apprentices from ethnic minorities area with a program to help them find jobs. Up to now, 78 trainees have graduated from the college and got jobs. However, vocational training work has faced some shortcomings due to learners’ limited education levels so they have suffered from difficulties in performing training programs. For that reason, the provincial committee foe ethnic minorities affairs and authorities at grassroots level must build concrete plan to provide suitable  apprenticeship for local laborers in accordance with the localities’ demand for labor force.
