Dual VET standards: training regulations and framework curricula

Here you can find documents that may be helpful when working with VET standards. We provide examples of translated training regulations and framework curricula in English, German and Spanish.

The provided translations are standards used for VET in the Dual VET system of Germany. The standards are “dual” in the sense that there is for each occupation, on the one hand, a standard for the provision of in-company VET defined in so-called training regulations and, on the other hand, a standard for school-based VET defined in so-called framework curriculum. Training regulations are a combination of occupational profile, training standard and examination standard. They define among other things: name of training occupation, duration of training, competencies acquired in the frame of training, training plan as well as examination requirements. Training regulations are a result of consensus-based institutionalized bargaining processes among stakeholders from the business, from society and from government. They are based on the specific requirements of business community and of society in Germany and are an expression of historically evolved VET structures in the country. Framework curricula are the basis for vocational education at VET schools and are closely coordinated with training regulations. Dual VET standards are an example for the quality features of VET in Germany: 

Cooperation of government and industry

Learning within the work process

Acceptance of national standards

Institutionalised research and consultation

Qualified vocational education and training staff

The provided standards are therefore not transferable one-to-one to other countries. They may be used for the illustration of functions, contents and development processes of VET standards for in-company VET in the German Dual VET system. They must not serve as blueprints for VET standards in other countries, isolated from country-specific conditions and institutional development processes. Every country should build own capacities for developing and updating training standards and ultimately define its own standards. For such capacity development, German VET cooperation is the competent partner.
