As Vietnam continues to contend with the lack of interested and skilled workers in its baking industry, ASSIST Vietnam launched the BAKE (Baking Training to Augment Knowledge and Entrepreneurial Development) project that established a vocational training center that will teach specialized baking skills to support the country’s baking trade.
During the course of the project, the first Baking Training Centre at the Ly Tu Trong College was accredited by the General Department of Vocational Training to have baking training as an official subject. Despite the presence of the COVID-19 virus, training programs were administered under the guidance of the new normal and strict health protocols.
Around 90 students were already trained for the basic course, with 2 more batches expected until the end of 2020. For the advanced course, a total of 7 modules will be produced with the first module launched last October 5-6th.
