“It is clear that the amount of trained human resources at present is too small and doubling the training capacity is not enough to meet the needs of society”, said Dr. Anh Tuan (Dean of the Department of Printing and Communication). communication, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education).
According to many printing enterprises, the current training quality has not caught up with the new technical level and advanced technology in the world. Even universities, colleges, and vocational training institutions themselves recognize that the training program is still heavy on theory, lacking in facilities, equipment, and practical means. Therefore, after graduating from school, it is still difficult for engineers and printing workers to approach businesses.
Printing technology (CNI) is an industry that has a very high demand for human resources in today's society. However, a team of highly trained and highly specialized engineers is still lacking.
According to Dr. Ngo Anh Tuan, the CNI industry is one of the fastest growing industries today, with an average annual growth rate of 10% to 15%.
Hiring demand in the printing technology industry
According to incomplete statistics of the Vietnam Printing Association, the country currently has nearly 1,200 large printing enterprises and over 5,000 private printing establishments with about 40,000 employees. On average, each year our country needs over 2,000 workers in the printing industry to replace those reaching retirement age and changing jobs. That's not to mention the number of businesses that grow under.
Meanwhile, the whole country has only 6 universities and colleges training this group of majors, including: Technology - School Equipment, CNI, Printing Engineering, and Technology - School Equipment for non-pedagogical systems.
As noted by universities and colleges with training in this field, the average salary of newly graduated engineers is from 3 to 5 million VND, skilled staff is about 10-15 million VND a month.
Human resources for vocational training in printing technology are too few
Dr. Anh Tuan acknowledged that, although considered as the country's leading training institution in the printing industry, the number of engineers graduating annually from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education is still too small.
In the last 5 years, 100% of students in the School of Printing and Communication have been "ordered" before graduation. Particularly, the Ho Chi Minh City market has an average of 300 workers per year, but the capacity of this school can only meet about 100, so the search for human resources is increasingly fierce. Therefore, printing businesses have to rely on about 1,000 workers graduating from professional intermediate schools, Hanoi College of Printing Industry and Ho Chi Minh City Printing Vocational College.
Print technology entrance exam
In fact, many parents and students do not understand the specifics of the printing industry, considering it a hard job. According to the training program of Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, a CNI engineer can work in many positions and in many types of enterprises. With the development of science and technology, the printing industry has entered the digital age. Along with that, jobs in this industry also expand to many related industries such as advertising communication, art design, graphics...
Currently, there are 6 CNI training schools nationwide, including: Pedagogical College of Vinh Phuc, Hoa Binh, and Nam Dinh; College of Printing Industry; Hanoi University of Science and Technology; and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technical Education.
