TECHNICAL-VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IN VIETNAM.
Department of National Education, Saigon (South Vietnam).
THE DIRECTORATE OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION, SET UP IN 1955, WAS GIVEN THE SPECIFIC DUTY OF TRAINING TECHNICIANS NEEDED FOR DEVELOPING INDUSTRY AND HANDICRAFTS. THE PROBLEMS OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN 1955 WERE--(1) THERE WERE ONLY TWO TECHNICAL SCHOOLS AND TWO APPRENTICE SCHOOLS, THREE APPLIED ARTS SCHOOLS, AND SEVEN ATELIER ECOLES (ARTISTS' OR DESIGNER SCHOOLS), (2) THERE WAS A LACK OF MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT, AND (3) THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE FULL-FLEDGED TEACHER OR SUPERVISOR OF SHOPS IN THE COUNTRY. UNDER THE DIRECTORATE, THERE WERE IN 1962 10 TECHNICAL-VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS, TWO APPLIED ARTS SCHOOLS, NINE ATELIER-ECOLES, AND ABOUT 150 PRIVATE SCHOOLS OFFERING COURSES IN DRIVING, ACCOUNTING, TYPEWRITING, AND HOME ECONOMICS. SECONDARY TECHNICAL STUDENT ENROLLMENT INCREASED FROM 709 IN 1955 TO 4,121 IN 1962, AND THE NUMBER OF SECONDARY TECHNICAL TEACHERS FROM 95 TO 272. TEACHERS WERE TRAINED BOTH OVERSEAS AND AT HOME IN 1962. NEW EQUIPMENT WAS PROVIDED BY FOREIGN AID PROJECTS. SOME OF THE LARGER TECHNICAL SCHOOLS PRODUCED MACHINES WHICH WERE USED TO EQUIP THE SMALLER SCHOOLS. (MM)
