VIETNAM - Online training benefits during the Coronavirus pandemic
Even though most of social and commercial activities in Vietnam are frozen during continuous lockdowns lasted by the turbulence of COVID-19’s Delta variant since late July this year, the Capacity Building in the Financial Sector – VIE/032 project managed to keep its activities go on with regular catching-ups with its counterparts and stakeholders.
Members of Group 1. The class was divided into 4 groups
The last days of August, 2021 were marked by the first ever “Online Training-of-the-Trainers” course which aimed to consolidating online teaching skills for trainers of Securities Research and Training Center (SRTC) being under the management of the State Securities Commission (SSC) and having responsibilities to organize and implement researches, training and incentive training about securities, securities market, capital market, providing training services for organizations and individuals in securities fields.

This specific course came into reality despite face-to-face classes were impossible during the last few months whilst real need on online securities-relevant subjects from market learners soars (when people stay at home, more money is invested in stocks!), hence the needs for improving skills for trainers who deliver virtual courses fortifies. Not only SRTC trainers attended in the event, the target participants were extended also to visiting trainers from other market institutions such as Vietnam Securities Depository, Hanoi Stock Exchange, SSC, Securities Magazine and securities firm. This actually goes in line with the project document and plans of reaching out to wider groups of trainers in the entire capital market, who would be spreading their knowledge to employees within their organisations and other market players.
Sitting at their home offices across the currently quiet city of Hanoi, the trainees were introduced to and guided through various functions of the MS Teams itself and other training supporting platforms like Kahoot, Slido, Quizzi, Mentimeter and particularly MS Whiteboard for finance and securities contents. While some at the beginning showed their lack of confidence working with new software and sites, the training was confirmed informative and helpful with lot of interaction and practice. “Very interesting! We now know quite a bit of tips and I am happy there are still lots to be explored and applied. The trainer has been super supportive”, Mr. Minh Vu from Vietnam Securities Depository expressed. He was not the only one who appreciated such a course as Ms. Huong Nguyen, SRTC’s Deputy General Director and also a participant said when closing the course: “It is absolutely on-time for us and I could see clearly how it would help us: saving time and costs, reaching for more learners, making screen-to-screen classes much more lively.” “We have received remarkable funding from Luxembourg for many of our activities during the last two years and been so thankful for LuxDev and VIE/032’s meaningful supports”, she said her center would be more efficient and more market oriented in the coming time with “SRTC fully operational with digitalized resources and systems thanks to those great supports”.

Final evaluation of the course received very positive feedbacks and the demand for an advanced follow-up course was raised. Financial market has never been an easy playfield, even for those who are behind the podiums or with the whiteboards delivering lessons.
The Capacity Building in the Financial Sector – VIE/032 project is co-financed by the Government of Vietnam and the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg and is implemented by the Vietnamese State Securities Commission and LuxDev, the Luxembourg Development Cooperation Agency.↑ To the top
