Accordingly, KLF will cooperate with EBG and become the agency’s very first private school partner regarding vocational training courses in nursing, mechanics, welding and construction for Vietnamese labors who already have basic vocational knowledge. To be specific, in phase 1 students will receive training in both specializations and language skill in Vietnam, then in phase 2 they shall be transferred to Germany or other European countries and continue their course there. By the end of the training program, students will be granted the Vocational Certificate under European Framework of Reference and thus be qualified to work in Germany or other European countries. It is anticipated that by January 2015, the two parties will run the pilot program on nursing and welding vocation for phase 1.
