On June 5, HEEAP brought a soft skills training workshop to Can Tho University’s School of Engineering. The workshop equipped more than 70 senior engineering students with the necessary knowledge, experience and skills to land a job after graduation.
As a commitment from HEEAP to the School of Engineering leadership, HEEAP funded the soft-skills workshop. Le Van Khoi, HEEAP In-Country Director, served as the workshop’s lead trainer. Khoi has over 10 years of international work experience and served as a professional trainer with Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training (MOET).
Throughout the day, he taught students how to do personal assessments, write professional CVs, plan clear career paths, search for employment, prepare for interviews and shared the skills and qualities required to successfully complete workplace tasks. Students learned the soft skills associated with teamwork. They learned these skills through a wide range of methodologies, including group activities, exercises, case studies, discussions, presentations, mock interviews, problem solving and sharing. HEEAP and Can Tho University will continue hosting Soft Skills Training Workshops annually.
