In which, Bosch’s contribution to the joint project will be over EUR 200.000 by establishing a demonstration room with equipment following Industry 4.0 requirements at LILAMA 2, taking part in conducting a demand analysis on skills relevant for Industry 4.0 and supporting LILAMA 2 in adapting its training programs accordingly, etc..

The project is implemented at LILAMA 2. Afterwards it is going to be expanded to other vocational training institutions under the support of the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training.

“The demand for highly skilled workforce in Vietnam continues to increase and thus this strategic partnership is a critical step to upskill/reskill labor force in order to stay competitive" – said Guru Mallikarjuna, Managing Director of Bosch Vietnam.

Also in the MOU signing ceremony, Dr. Jürgen Hartwig, Programme Director of Reform of TVET in Vietnam (GIZ) said: “In this cooperation, GIZ supports the partners in adjusting vocational training offers according to the requirements of Industry 4.0. Bosch, as a leading Internet of Things company, is an ideal partner to help develop modern, up-to-date training programs which reflect the demands of the business sector and enhance the competitive ability of Vietnam in a globalized economy.”

The partners cooperate on key fields related to the education and training sector, including:

Awareness raising: through the high-raking conference about consequences of Industry 4.0 for vocational education and training.

Demand Analysis: collection of best practice examples of Industry 4.0 related training programmes, analysis of demands and preparing of the adjustment of training programmes at LILAMA 2 International Technology College

Development and piloting of Industry 4.0 modules/elements, including further training of teachers and in-company trainers (multipliers)

Dissemination of results: summary of evaluation results of the pilot project, integration of adapted modules/elements in training programmes of other vocational training institutes, transfer of resulting recommendations to DVET

“The trainees who take part in the modernized training programmes at LILAMA 2 will obtain the theoretical knowledge and practical skills reflecting the latest technological developments and thus improve their employability. These skills are required not only by FDIs but also by Vietnamese companies which are adapting their processes and services to the changing environment resulting from the 4th industrial revolution.,” – said Mr. Nguyen Khanh Cuong, Rector of LILAMA 2 College.

Dr. Truong Anh Dung, Deputy Director General of DVET added: “This pilot project is very important for us, since the adapted modules can be implemented in vocational training institutes throughout the entire country. Also, we can use resulting recommendations for the integration of topics related to Industry 4.0 into the regulatory framework on the system level.”
