He shared that in Norway, the annual birth rate was 60,000 people, nearly 97% were in high school, some dropped out before graduation. Career orientation at the secondary level is very important, so the Norwegian government has implemented a number of campaigns aimed at parents to allow their children to attend a vocational school instead of dropping out and falling into school. He emphasized that in Norway vocational training has very close cooperation between the Ministry of Education, the Trade Union and NHO. The parties are responsible for directing and implementing Career Education through specific activities such as providing internships, supervising and organizing vocational certification.
Mr. Kurt Nilssen shared his experiences at the training
According to his assessment, the vocational education and trainning program (VET) has been implemented quite effectively and effectively. NHO and partners has developed nine vocational education and training programs. Each of the nine high school VET programs are subject to close supervision by nine Quality Advisory Boards. National curriculum and subject curricula are continually revised and reviewed as a result of the emergence of new labor market demand and specific requirements for qualifications and skills. The process of development and the need to change the curriculum, content and teaching methods are supported by ministries, employers, parents, students, unions. In addition, every nine years, nine Quality Advisory Boards will be sent to the National Advisory Board to review the situation and assess the need for change in the VET program itself.
During his working experience in Vietnam, he also shared his experience in working with the two largest vocational schools in Dong Nai and Ho Chi Minh City, after conducting activities to attract students and they have very positive results.

At the workshop, delegates also discussed the differences between the two VET models of Norway and Vietnam. All participants agreed that the education and training model in Norway was a very effective model. However, in Vietnam today, the best way to do it is to engage the business in building a training program. During the training process, the quality of the student's learning should be closely monitored through external assessment (employer) in conjunction with the internal assessment (school). On the school side, also need to actively improve the training program from time to time to suit the needs of enterprises.
Overview of the training session
In 2018, one of the three breakthroughs of vocational education and traning is identified by MOLISA as strengthening cooperation and linking with enterprises in training organizations at central and high schools to create sustainable jobs for students after graduation. The management, workers, trade unions in particular and employers in general need a great effort to do this task.
