HCM City colleges get Singaporean overhaul

In Uncategorized on August 24, 2008 at 3:56 pm

HCM CITY — Four vocational training colleges in HCM City will use teaching methodology learned in a Singaporean programme and then transfer those skills to other instructors.

The three-year, US$1.15 million programme was announced by city leaders, the city Department of Education and Training and representatives from the Singapore Polytechnic, and Temasek Foundation in a signing ceremony yesterday.

Tan Hang Cheong, dean of Singapore Polytechnic, said: “We will bring the city’s education sector a rod instead of a fish.”

The project, supported by Singapore-based Temasek Foundation and Singapore Polytechnic, aims to upgrade technical knowledge and modernise educational methodology for deans, experts and lecturers at vocational schools.

Following a one-week training course with foreign experts in HCM City, around 60 delegates from the four schools will be sent to Singapore to learn modern teaching methodologies in information technology and electrical engineering.

The 60 educators would be assigned to then transfer these skills to the city’s four vocational colleges and later to the remaining vocational schools in the city.

Huynh Cong Minh, head of the city Department of Education and Training said the city must raise awareness about the importance of vocational training, update educational equipment and train more experts.

He said Viet Nam’s educational system was lagging behind many other regional countries, and that more professional educators with international standards were needed to raise the quality of teaching and training courses. —
