Newsletter on Indo-German VET cooperation

In Germany, vocational education and training (VET) ensures that future members of the skilled workforce are equipped with high-level specialist, methodological and social competence, and thus it lays the essential foundation for an innovative and competitive economy. Companies can train their skilled workers to fit their needs. Skilled workers, who were trained in a company, know its corporate culture. German vocational training and in particular the Dual VET system is worldwide seen as a success model. Therefore, many countries are interested in the German VET system. India has been a strong advocate of the German Dual Model and efforts are made to transfer the system into the Indian context.

These are some of the topics covered in "Skill Times", the Newsletter of the National Skills Network (NSN) from India. Over the next six months, GOVET and NSN will publish articles, interviews and updates that inform and educate about the German Dual VET system and the bilateral VET cooperation of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with India. Key topics include the five core elements of the Dual system which form the pillars of the successful framework, the impact of digitalisation on VET, the scope for industry engagement through apprenticeship, training of trainers and related areas. The articles can be found in the section "Stories from our Partner Network" of "Skill Times".
