Hun Sen: Promote TVET more widely

Prime Minister Hun Sen called on the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training and relevant stakeholders to support the implementation of the national policy on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) 2017-2025 in developing human resources.

Hun Sen made the call in his letter marking the fourth National TVET Day to be observed on June 15 under the theme “TVET Improves Skills and Higher Income”.

“In the last five years, there are more than 200,000 trainees, workers and students who have successfully completed their study, acquired and upgraded their skills, received good job opportunities and created jobs. They have increased their family income and contributed significantly to the national economy,” Hun Sen said.

He said workers who had lost their jobs due to the suspension of their factories amid Covid-19 have received training provided by the labour ministry. So far, 68,000 workers from various factories and enterprises have received flexible and quality training on soft skills.

The prime minister encouraged all stakeholders to continue TVET programmes but to transition online amid the pandemic.

“Maintain distance teaching and be flexible to the situations,” he said.

All state and private media, he said, have to help raise public awareness about TVET more widely.

“Ministries and institutions at all levels, employees and employers, private sector, non-governmental organisations, and all compatriots have to join hand to raise awareness about this fourth National TVET Day tremendously,” he said.
