[Excerpt] This assessment analyzes the major trends, strengths, and issues of the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) subsector in Viet Nam. The strategic investment priorities of the Government of Viet Nam, and of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), in the education and training sector are documented, and potential future directions for external assistance are identified. The assessment focuses on formal skills development programs under the Ministry of Labour–Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), specifically in the General Directorate of Vocational Training (GDVT). The document does not investigate MOLISA’s large program of nonformal skills development, or formal TVET at the upper secondary level under the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET).
