Partner Description:

Bac Thang Long Economic Technical College (BTL), established in 2002, is a state-owned college in Hanoi, Vietnam. BTL provides vocational training and support to female migrants to help them find better jobs or establish their own businesses, and provides practical vocational training to youth. BTL’s vision is to become a multi-disciplinary college with various training levels to improve economic opportunities for women and youth. BTL has partnerships with more than 80 companies, collaborating to provide practical training that meets the needs of the market.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bac Thang Long Economic Technical College focused primarily on offline recruitment methods, promoting their training programs in person to high school students and through recruitment offices in and around Hanoi. In the current COVID-19 context, they are not able to implement any of these recruitment activities and have limitations in communication with their students and partners.
