SDG Booster – Connecting Finnish and Vietnamese organisations in the TVET sector

27 October 2023

Join the SDG Booster workshops, focusing on Vietnam’s technical and vocational education and training (TVET) sector and link with Team Europe programmes!

Organised virtually on 29 November and 16 January, the two digital workshops aim to connect Finnish and Vietnamese companies and key stakeholders in TVET. The workshops will focus on three main areas: 1) green jobs, 2) work-life collaboration and migration, and 3) teacher training and certifications, with Edtech as a cross-cutting theme. The participants get to establish new partnerships, jointly develop solutions for the thematic areas, and formulate projects for funding from Finnpartnership and other financiers, and development partners of Team Europe in Vietnam. 

The event is organised by Finnpartnership in collaboration with Finnish National Agency for Education (OPH), Vietnam Association for Vocational Education and Training & Social Work (VAVET), and Finland’s Embassy in Vietnam.
