The curriculum needed to stick to the content in the Document and Resolution of the 12th National Party Congress, the conclusions in plenums of the 12th National Party Congress. It also needed to go deeper into the core values of Marxism, Leninism and Ho Chi Minh’s ideology associated with the movement of objective reality. Organizers of the courses were asked to pay attention to improve the practical content of the curriculum; conduct research to update new knowledge, situations, issues arisen in the process of leading the country and provinces; solutions for these issues for the benefits of the students. After the courses ended, it was essential to evaluate students in all aspects including learning, training, and enthusiastic participation in activities.
