UNESCO hosts training workshop for senior education managers

Ha Noi, 4 December – UNESCO and Viet Nam’s National Institute for Education Managers (NIEM) under the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) organized two three-day trainings outside Ha Noi for 50 senior education managers on i) talent management and ii) participatory planning, management and organizational development.

During the first training, between 25-27 November in Tan Da, senior directors and vice-directors of departments of MOET were trained using an active participatory approach. Participants strengthened their abilities to apply recruitment criteria and interview processes that identify attitudes and personal attributes beyond knowledge skills and academic qualifications. Furthermore, they learned to formulate competency-based job descriptions, develop staff career plans, increase staff productivity through effective supervision, management and assessment.

During the second training, between 2-4 December in Vinh Yen, participants were trained on participatory planning and leadership, methods for involving stakeholders, conducting organizational reviews and maximizing staff productivity. Examples and good practices from around the globe were shared.

The two trainings were the third and fourth in a comprehensive set of trainings tailored specifically to enhance leadership of education managers, based on existing good practices and design of a desired profile. MOET, with the support of UNESCO, identified eight trainings modules required for the desired profile of an education manager. Other training modules developed by UNESCO and used to train education managers in MOET and at the provincial level include modules on: i) strategic planning and results-based management and ii) negotiation and communication skills.
