The work of the division focuses on projects relating to the development, testing and transfer of innovative solutions for the modernisation of vocational education and training. Concepts for the sustainable design of initial and continuing vocational education and training are developed and tested within the scope of programmes (e.g. training bonuses), funding priorities (e.g. continuing vocational education and training) and pilot projects (e.g. “Sustainability”). The funding of pilot projects including supporting academic investigations is a legal mandate of the BIBB in accordance with Section 90 para. no. 1d of the Vocational Training Act.
The division runs internal research and development projects (e.g. Permeability and “AusbildungPlus”) in order to strengthen specialist expertise. The results and findings are processed and disseminated for use in vocational education training practice, introduced within academic discussion relating to vocational education training, and evaluated for policy advice (e.g. DEQA-VET, quality assurance as an interdisciplinary theme).
The work of division 4.2 focuses largely on the following themes in order to develop innovative solutions for vocational education and training:
