Digital transformation of the world of work - Vocational Education and Training 4.0
Digital transformation of the world of work
The joint initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) systemically examines qualifications for specialist staff and competencies for the digitalised world of tomorrow.
Many common issues, partly different solutions: The partner institutes BIBB and SFIVET have continued their long-standing cooperation with an expert workshop. Topics among others: Digitalisation in vocational education and training and its attractiveness.
Digitalisation demands appropriate qualifications and continuing vocational education and training of teaching staff, stressed BIBB President Esser at a symposium on "VET 4.0" in Leipzig. BIBB will therefore support a nationwide qualification initiative.
Together with the German Fire Protection Association GmbH, imsimity has developed a fire protection information course in virtual reality for the Kuwait Fire Academy. This course makes it possible to provide virtual firefighting training using different fire extinguishing methods.
The new issue of the BIBB specialist journal "Vocational Training in Research and Practice - BWP" documents the initial results and findings on the spread of digital technology in VET. In his editorial BIBB President Esser speaks out in favour of "balanced vocational education and training".
BIBB is joining forces with stakeholders from trade and industry, academic research and educational practice to examine the consequences of digitalisation for vocational education and training. This issue focuses on initiatives, findings and perspectives for structuring technological change.
For the first time, the BIBB study "Using and producing media - development of media competency in vocational education and trainingng" provides a comprehensive cross-sectional analysis of the importance of media competency across occupational and sector boundaries and also devises a classification.
According to BIBB President Esser, the degree to which the challenges facing VET can be successfully overcome, especially in connection with the digital transformation of the world of work, depends on the competence of company-based and school-based trainers.
BIBB has carried out an investigation into the modernisation needs of the four dual IT training occupations on behalf of the two federal ministries BMWi and BMBF. The final report recommends that the requirements profiles, contents and inner structure of the occupations should be revised.
