Research interest
Transfer of the dual system to India

I would like to use the opportunity that I have been given as a Federal Chancellor Fellow to investigate the German vocational education and training system in detail. I am particularly interested in how application of the dual principle assists with the development of skills. A careful analysis of the various aspects of the vocational education and training system in Germany, such as VET policy, financing mechanisms, technology and legal and institutional structures, will achieve three long-term results.

  • Development of a model for the transfer of key elements of the dual system to India.
  • Develop an understanding of the challenges faced by German VET providers on the Indian vocational training market. Enable these providers to enter into partnerships and conduct pilot projects in India.
  • Collect examples of best practice and ideas from Germany to meet the challenges in connection with the integration of persons with disabilities into the Indian vocational education and training system.
