Multimedia design is a popular profession across the world and involves the integration of multiple forms of media-related activities in various design fields, such as graphic print design, web design, and digital film production. Different countries implement different training models for preparing learners for a career in multimedia design, such as product-oriented training in Vietnam and work-process-oriented training in Germany. This paper argues that, while both of these training models have their advantages and limitations, combining their features into a new multimedia design vocational training model could prepare workers to become more resilient in an increasingly competitive future work environment.
