Pham Vu Luan, Minister of Education and Training and John Nielsen, Ambassador of Denmark December 14 signed an agreement which provides Danish support for arts education in primary schools in Vietnam  from 2011 – 2015.


An earlier pilot project implementing a new approach to arts education in six different provinces in Northern Vietnam has been tremendously successful.


Support to Arts Education in Primary Schools has brought a new learner centred approach to develop the creative skills of Vietnamese children. This method focuses on a child’s cognitive thinking and draws active participation.


The aim of the new program is to apply new methods and materials in primary schools in Vietnam and develop a focused approach towards art education in primary schools. The program would follow a national curriculum of art education in primary schools which would be more learner-focused.


The signing of the agreement comes after a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was signed by the Vietnamese and Danish minister of education and training. The MoU signifies the broad scale of educational activities between Vietnam and Denmark.


During the signing ceremony, Mr. Pham Vu Luan expressed his pleasure with the results of the early phase of the project and hoped that this innovative approach towards teaching could be applied in other subjects in schools in future.


The Danish Ambassador John Nielsen stated that the first phase of the project had been highly successful and that he was pleased to see that the agreement added another milestone to the increasing cooperation between Vietnam and Denmark in the field of education.
