New skills in English language & hospitality for Vietnam
William Angliss Institute has started a vocational education training program in Da Nang, Vietnam in partnership with Dong A University.
Australian Ambassador to Vietnam Mr Hugh Borrowman launched the training program to give participants internationally recognised service and culinary skills, and improved English skills. These new skills will help students take advantage of work opportunities in the tourism and hospitality sectors in the region under the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the ASEAN Economic Community.
William Angliss Institute specialises in the foods, tourism, hospitality and events industries and has been working with the ASEAN Secretariat since 2004 on Mutual Recognition Agreements in these sectors. William Angliss Institute International and Business Development Director, Wayne Crosbie said “the Australian government has seen the importance of this activity and provided seed funding to support the program. It combines the resources of William Angliss Institute and Dong A University to provide high quality vocational training to support the tourism industry in central Vietnam.”
The program has received $250,000 in seed funding from the Australian Government and the pilot program will train approximately 80 participants: 60 in front line hospitality guest service, and 20 in culinary skills. The aim of the seed funding is to help build a platform in Central Vietnam for internationally-recognised vocational training in hospitality and tourism.
Mr Borrowman said “the Australian Government is pleased to support this initiative, which will equip participants with valuable skills for a promising future in the tourism and hospitality sector in the region, including Australia. This program will utilise Australia’s world-class vocational education and training expertise and builds on existing collaboration between Australia and Vietnam to help develop Vietnam’s vocational education and training sector.”
The launch of the program took place during Taste of Australia week, the Australian Government’s first celebration of Australian food, beverage and cuisine across Vietnam.
