Foreign language and computer teaching centres can have a maximum of 25 students per class under new draft regulations prepared by the Ministry of Education and Training.

The new limitation is a significant reduction from the 40 students allowed at such centres earlier.

At a workshop held in HCM City on Monday, Truong Tat Hien, senior specialist with the ministry’s Lifelong Learning Department, said that it was necessary to reduce the number of students in each classroom in order to make teaching and learning more effective.

The draft regulation also allows foreign language centres to offer Vietnamese classes to foreigners working in Viet Nam.

Pham Minh Duc, deputy head of Dong Nai Department of Education and Training’s Lifelong Learning division, suggested that the ministry should issue regulations on providing certificates to foreigners who complete their Vietnamese language courses.

The draft also allows foreign language and computer training centres to establish international co-operation towards improving training quality as well as professional skills of their teachers.

The new regulations also cover several conditions including the number of teachers, their qualification, the area of built-up classrooms, other facilities like libraries, and entertainment spaces that will have to be met in order to set up foreign language and/or computer teaching centres.

The centres will have to use curricula and textbooks approved by the ministry.

Education and training departments will be responsible for managing and monitoring the centres’ operations, as well as imposing financial as other punitive measures.

The punitive measures include revoking the licenses issued to centres in case they violate the ministry’s regulations.

Duc said the ministry should co-operate with other agencies including the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and the Ministry of Planing and Investment in order to create favourable conditions for managing foreign language and computer teaching centres. —VNS
