Today, teaching under orientation to learner capacity development is a natural tendency of countries around the world, it has great significance in formation and development of comprehensive personality for students. However, in Vietnam, up to now, implementation at schools has not really worked leading to slow innovation down and greatly affect the quality of education. This article talks about the difficulties and challenges in the quality of Fine Arts teacher staff at high schools in the context of Vietnam’s integration into international education and at the same time discusses the responsibilities of management levels to improve teacher capacities. In order to overcome these shortcomings, it is needed to develop a flexible roadmap and provide sustainable solutions (particularly raising the awareness of Fine Arts teachers in fundamental reform of teaching methods; reform of the way of examining and evaluating students' learning outcomes under the orientation to capacity development; content of the curriculum must be restructured; at the same time strengthen the training, improvement and development of aesthetic sense for Fine Arts teachers, etc.) to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the fine arts subject at high schools under the orientation to capacity development in the current internationalization era, as this is a critical and decisive issue for the comprehensive and fundamental reform of general education in Vietnam.
