Taipei City Vocational Development Institute was formerly the Taipei Vocational Training Center, which was established on July 1, 1983, with the aim of nurturing Taipei City’s human resources. After many reforms, the Center was transformed into the Vocational Development Institute on January 1, 2013. From career decisions to career development, we provide comprehensive competency nurturing programs for job seekers.
