Lawnet would like to answer your questions as follows:
On October 25, 2022, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Vietnam issued Circular 07/2022/TT-BVHTTDL stipulating codes and standards for professional titles and salary classification of sports officers.
Officials specializing in physical training and sports must meet the following standards of training and retraining:
- Having a university degree or higher with a training discipline or major relevant to the discipline or field of physical training and sport;
- Having a certificate of standard training for professional titles of public employees specializing in physical training and sports.
In particular, instructors (grade IV) must meet the standards of graduating from an intermediate level of physical training and sport or higher. If you have an intermediate or higher diploma in another major, you must have a certificate of training in standards for professional titles of public employees in physical training and sports.
Thus, compared with the provisions of Joint Circular 13/2014/TTLT-BVHTTDL-BNV dated October 17, 2014, Circular 07 has abolished the conditions for certificates of foreign languages and informatics in standards on qualifications for training and fostering public employees specialized in physical training and sports.
However, in terms of professional competence, officials specializing in physical training and sports must have basic information technology skills and can use foreign languages or use ethnic minority languages for officials working in ethnic minority areas according to job position requirements (not applicable to tour guides).
In addition, the appointment and classification of salaries into professional titles of public employees specializing in physical training and sports must be based on the job position, responsibilities and tasks being undertaken, and the officer's expertise and profession. When appointing and assigning salaries to the respective professional titles of public employees in the sports and physical training sector, they must not combine salary increases or promotion of public employees' professional titles.
The Circular takes effect from December 10, 2022.
