1. The urgency of the topic
The human resources quality is the driving force of socio-economic
development. It also plays a significant role in determining the success level
of national industrialization and modernization. The thing is, human
resources quality depends greatly on training and education activities.
Acknowledging their importance, the educational institutions and
Colleges have spent great effort to manage training activities, apply intiative
educational models with the aim to improve training quality, as well as to
meet the demand of the society on education.
Since its formation in the 1970s, ADDIE the training model has focused
on the enhancement of a close cooperation between enterprises and
educational institutions. Each stage of this model is implemented on the
basis of joint participation of both the enterprise and the training institution.
Hence, choosing and utilizing
ADDIE model in the current training
management at colleges is a proper direction to follow.
Being considered the center of education in the Central region and Central
Highlands of Vietnam, Da Nang City ownes 15 universities, 20 colleges and
dozens of vocational training institutions. In recent years, educational
institutions in general and colleges in Da Nang in particular have put many
efforts in completing the training content, training programs, teaching method
and training management method. Initially, certain good results have been
achieved. Though, there remains a number of limitations in educational
administration: training plans are developed mainly on the basis of available
resources of the training institution, not depending much on the society’s
demands; the training focuses much on theoretical knowledge while not
giving enough training on skills, which stands for the reason of the lack of
skills to adapt to the work environment when students graduate and start
working, enterprises have to re-train the students from scratch, …. That fact
has put the educational institutions before the inevitable requirement to
upgrade the educational management in accordance with socio-economic
development needs, to adjust the training programs to the actual state of the
labor market for higher training activities effectiveness, which is also a
method for the brand reputation promoting and developing of Colleges.
The aforestated reasons have urged the author to conduct his doctoral
reasearch on the topic: “Management of training associate degree level
human resources to meet the socio–economic development needs of Da Nang

8. Basic research points
In order to gain an adequate view and pratical solutions in managing the
associate degree level human resource to meet the socio-economic
development demand, it is necessary that:
Firstly, it is required to take the rules of the market economy into
consideration, conduct supply-demand analysis, analyse the current status of
human resources, emphasize on forecasting training needs… to develop
appropriate education roadmap, training programs, and study majors,
ensuring the efficiency economically and socially. On that ground,
formulating the system of colleges appropriately.
Secondly, there must be strong decentralization so that colleges could
operate independently and bare the responsibility for their education quality
before the society by their owns, thereby promote the creativity, dynamism
and innovation in a positive way.
Thirdly, the proposed solutions must be piloted in colleges to test and
ensure the rationality, feasibility and efficiency.

2.3.1 Management of enrollment
The enrollment and school admission are self-manage by the colleges.
Enterprises hardly participate in this process.
2.3.2 Management of developing educational program
Studies show that, many education programs remain behind the socioeconomic development need and the practical manufacture situation, for they
are implemented on the basis of available resources of the colleges.
2.3.3 Management of teaching staff

and lack of labors. Colleges have so many lecturers to teach theories while
lacking lecturers to teach new professions, as well as teachers who are welltrained for technical subjects or high professional skill level for teaching
2.3.4 Management of teaching facilities and equipment
As been shown in study results, colleges are still lack of essential
equipment, machinery. The operation of teaching facilities and equipment
system does not meet the requirements. It is because each practice lesson in
workshops/practice room may be used for twice or three times of the
standard number of students (18-22 students).
2.3.5 Management of teaching plan

level human resource
All documents and regulations issued in the past has provided
development opportunities for the education of associate degree level human
resource in order to supply the market with a source of labor with sufficient
occupational skills, workmanship, serving the growth of country and
accomplishing education objectives.
2.4.2 Local socio-economic development needs
In the past few years, the investment in Da Nang City has emerged
rapidly, resulting in the increasing demand for human resources, especially
those at associate degree level.
2.4.3 The technology advancement
The past few years witnessed the strong development of science and
technology. With that give, colleges have gradually applied modern
technology in teaching theory. They have invested strongly in workshops to
facilitate efficient teaching and learning activities.
Da Nang now has 9 State colleges, 6 of which are under the management
of governmenting Ministries and gain interest and huge investment from
these Ministries. Private colleges have relatively large capital and high tuition
fees so basically, they are financially stable.
2.4.5 Capacity of leaders and management staff of colleges
Rectors of colleges in Da Nang City have at least the Master
qualifications. According to the survey, those leaders, managers have both
leadership and vision for the development of the colleges.
2.5. Overall assessment on the human resource training management
actual state at colleges in Da Nang City.
The colleges have diversified training forms to meet the demand of socioeconomic development. Material facilities and teaching facilities are invested
with modern and advanced technology. The training program is also
gradually improved and closer to reality. Leaders, managers and teachers at
colleges are young, creative and fast-approaching with new training methods.
The training quality of college remained low, a large number of students
who have completed their studies cannot find jobs. Despite the improvement
and upgradation, the facilities and teaching facilities of colleges have not
kept pace with the trend of scientific and technological development.
Teachers still fail to meet the renovation needs of the educational program.
2.5.3 Causes of the above limitations
The management of training human resources at associate degree level is
still limited. This results from many causes including local authorities,
educational institutions, enterprises and even the learners.
