The National Training Needs Assessment for the tourism sector in Vietnam provides up-to-date information of the skills and training needs of both public and private sector organisations and enterprises involved with tourism in Vietnam. The study recognises the skills needs in all regions and provinces in the country, the demands of emerging tourism sectors and the specific needs of women and ethnic minorities seeking to work in the industry. This Assessment is also anticipating and interpreting how the wide range of changes that are impacting on tourism impact on the skills that are required across Vietnamese tourism.
The survey was conducted through a suite of custom designed questionnaires and targeted interviews with tour operators and travel agencies; accommodation and food service providers; transport companies involved with tourism; MICE, nature, cultural, heritage, adventure and sports tourism organizers; craft and retail; technology companies; Technical and Vocational and Education Training (TVET) schools; and key public sector organisations.
