On November 22, 2022, the Labour Minister, Mr. Suchart Chomklin, assigned the Labour Minister’s Advisor, Mrs. Thiwalrat Angkinan, to chair the opening ceremony of the workshop on building a career guidance network and a meeting to clarify the vocational skill enhancement project for students not continuing studies after graduation in Samut Songkhram Province for 2023. School administrators, heads of government agencies under the Ministry of Labour in Samut Songkhram Province, and seminar participants gave a welcome at the Coco View Hotel, Mae Klong Subdistrict, Mueang District, Samut Songkhram Province.
Mrs. Thiwalrat said that the government under the leadership of the Prime Minister and Minister of Defence General Prayuth Chan-ocha, the Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan, who oversees the Ministry of Labour, and the Labour Minister Mr. Suchart Chomklin, gives importance to the development and empowerment of human resources in all aspects and age group, to become good and talented people. The Ministry of Labour, therefore, realizes the importance of organizing the career guidance network seminar held today to allow career guidance networks to share knowledge for guiding or giving advice to students in choosing to study, guiding them to choose the right occupation in line with future labour market demands. The efforts would help reduce the gap between the workforce and labour demands.
Mrs. Thiwalrat continued that the seminar would be especially helpful in developing the workforce and enabling a quality labour market. It is also an opportunity to create collaborations in career guidance between the Ministry of Labour and education agencies, in particular guidance teachers who play an important role in laying the foundation for students to be successful in continuing their education and choosing a career that matches their knowledge and abilities, also in line with the labour market. This would enable a workforce that drives the country’s economy with innovation. Thus, the workers must be developed to have the knowledge and expertise, particularly in science and technology, English, computer skills, and creativity, which will support a quality future workforce.
