Project Manager

Thu Duc College of Technology (TDC) formerly known as Thu Duc Technical Education and Vocation Center was established in 1984. With the motto “Always renew to develop”, the school always strives and attempts to enhance its training quality, with the purpose of being an educational institution that trains highly qualified people, contributing to the industrialization and modernization process of HCMC and Vietnam.

The European Institute of Cooperation and Development (IECD) is a French non-governmental organization founded in 1988 and operating in the field of social and economic development in partnership with local institutions. IECD’s main sectors of action are vocational training and professional integration, assistance to micro and small enterprises and access to education and health for the most vulnerable.

The Bakery & Pastry Training Centre is a cooperation program between IECD (European Institute of Cooperation and Development) and TDC (Thu Duc College of Technology). It is a non-profit organization based in TDC Campus (Thu Duc District) dedicated to Vietnamese vulnerable youngsters and their future employment through an intensive training at the highest standards of qualification in Bakery and Pastry. To ensure its economic sustainability, the training centre will operate as a social enterprise and, thanks to the sale of products made by apprentices, will be able to finance itself at more than 90%.
