Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is the master key for sustainable development and one of the priority areas of Viet Nam’s government to achieve the National Green Growth Strategy for the period 2011 to 2020 with vision to 2050 (VGGS) and the National Action Plan on Green Growth (GGAP) for the period 2014 to 2020. In the context of a greening economy and society, TVET provides workers with skills needed to be able to work well in the workplace. Additionally TVET promotes knowledge and competences necessary to face current and future social, economic and ecological challenges and contributes to sustainable development of the country.
