Abstract

According to the official statistics, over 225,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students are unemployed in 2016, a double increase compared to 2010, are alarming figures of learners’ employability in Vietnam. Within the scope of HAPIE project (www.vuheie.org) between Vietnam and United Kingdom, this research aimed to assess the awareness and attitudes of learners and teachers in enhancing the quality of human resource training in Vietnam towards international standardization. We surveyed 503 opinions of lecturers, pupils and students in Nha Trang city about ability to find a job after graduation. The result showed that 43.8% of pupils and students chose experience before graduation which is the most important factor when applying for a job, while the most prioritized factor is ‘suitable speciality’ when choosing a certain job in companies (36.2%). However, 52.4% of those are willing to choose another works which are not relevant with their major if not finding the right specialized job. As regards lecturers, 73.6% said that using appropriate teaching methods can enhance students’ employability. Nevertheless, 52.9% of them had no comments about the development of new syllabus, especially the programs related to the Innovation and Entrepreneurship (73.6%). This indicated that such contents are rather limited at university. From this point, this research proposes policy solution to improve students’ employability that contributed to high-quality human resource training in Vietnam towards international standardization.
