At present, the province is giving vocational training to labourers in the agricultural sector, including planting mushrooms, saffron, ornamental plants, vegetables, aquaculture and poultry breeding; and labourers in non-agricultural sectors, including rattan and bamboo production, cooking, industrial garment, informatics, carpentry, restaurant services and traditional industries.

To increase the quality of vocational training for rural labourers, the province is closely working with vocational training organizations, centres and schools to accelerate the dissemination of vocational guidance among labourers in rural areas and those belonging to poor and nearly-poor families, thus increasing society’s awareness of vocational training. In addition, training courses have also been organized for teachers from vocational training foundations.

Since 2011, Bac Ninh province has given vocational training to nearly 36,000 labourers, including nearly 25,300 female labourers. Some 75% of these labourers have stable jobs. Many have been given loans for expanding production, bringing high income for themselves and for other labourers./.
