Jane is researching the growth of vocational education programs within community colleges in the United States and focusing on how the American community college system can learn from the German VET system. In researching the German VET system, she will focus on which aspects of the German dual system may be the most applicable to community colleges in the United States, how Germans who take up vocational training in Germany fare in the labor market compared to Germans with other educational and career paths and which industries in the United States may benefit from a dual education system. She will utilize BIBB’s data, including the Employment Surveys, to address her research questions.
