Celebrating 75 years of the UK and Vietnam working together

Professor Daniel Khan OBE represented NOCN at a recent symposium on TVET in Vietnam.

Professor Daniel Khan OBE representing NOCN was invited to speak at a major symposium on TVET in Vietnam earlier this month, organised by the UK Government agency, the Department of International Trade (DfID), as part of the 75 years’ celebration of the UK and Vietnam working together. The event was opened by the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy for Vietnam, Ed Vaizey MP.

The symposium focused on the capacity building of the Vietnamese skills sector through the use of British skills qualifications and training organisations. Professor Khan spoke on the range of qualifications offered by NOCN and in particular its offering in Construction, Productivity and ESOL. The event was well attended by Vietnamese Colleges, Universities and Government Departments; with many delegates expressing interest in NOCN qualifications.

Professor Khan said, “The Vietnam economy continues to expand significantly but has reached a stage where Vocational qualifications are now a major skills strategy supported by the Government.”

Speaking about the event NOCN Group Managing Director, Graham Hasting-Evans said: “We were delighted to be able to take part in the recent symposium in Vietnam and were pleased at the positive response from delegates. We look forward to working with our partners in Vietnam to develop skills through the offer of NOCN qualifications”.
