Greening TVET

Viet Nam: Brochure on Greening TVET published

Greening TVET is the title of an awareness-raising booklet explaining basic concepts and understandings about Greening TVET. It has been developed with the assistance of Dr Klaus-Dieter Mertineit, who contributed as co-author and co-editor to the creation of the brochure.

Greening TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) is a key element of sustainable development and an important priority of the Vietnamese Government in its commitment to successfully implementing the Vietnam National Green Growth Strategy. Greening TVET does not only equip the workforce with necessary skills to perform well in the workplace, but also enhances essential knowledge and competencies to cope with existing and future social, economic and ecological challenges.
Acknowledging the importance of Greening TVET, the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET), in cooperation with the Vietnamese-German Programme “Reform of TVET in Vietnam”, compiled this “Greening TVET” brochure. The brochure is developed from the results of technical workshops on the ‘Action Plan for Greening TVET’, and on ‘Greening of TVET institutes’ organized in July 2018, as well as various Vietnamese and international reports focusing on this topic. The brochure provides basic concepts and understandings about Greening TVET with the intention to contribute to awareness-raising about this issue, and to successfully integrate Greening TVET in the national TVET system.
The brochure was published in the Programme “Reform of TVET in Viet Nam” financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in cooperation with the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).
