Name:Training resources on social work for frontline workers
Description:

Social work was officially classified as a profession in Viet Nam in 2010 by Government's Decision 32/2010/TTg on Development of Social Work Profession. Since then, great efforts have been made in social work education, especially for frontline workers working in different settings such as in communities, schools, social protection centres, hospitals, who are at the forefront of activities targeting vulnerable children.

Up to 2016, more than 10,000 frontline workers and social collaborators have received short-term social work training to improve their skills in social service delivery for vulnerable people and children. The country aims to have 25,000 frontline workers and social collaborators trained in social work by 2020 as indicated in Government's Decision 32/2010/TTg on Development of Social Work Profession.

UNICEF has been supporting the Government in the development of the social work profession, in particularly in social work education. Based on the training needs assessment conducted in 2011, 20 training modules have been developed to address the training needs of frontline workers and social collaborators who provide support and protect vulnerable population, such as children, people with disabilities, the elderly, the poor, ethnic minorities, and community people in emergency settings. In addition to the training modules, two trainings of trainers were held for more than 100 trainers from local universities, colleges and vocational schools, who would deliver training for frontline workers and social collaborators. The training modules have been revised and finalized based on the feedback from the trainings in the past five years.

The training modules are being made available to be used by line ministries, universities and colleges. Soft copies are being sent to provincial Departments of Labour, Invalid and Social Affairs, universities, colleagues and organizations working on social work. It is hoped that the 20 training modules serve as useful sources for social work training and practice in the country.

[Please note the training modules are only in Vietnamese language]
