Modernisation of Vocational Education and Training – The International Consultancy adopted by BIBB

For more than forty years, the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Traning has helped secure people’s economic and professional future. As Germany’s national and international centre of competence for VET, BIBB has been offering advice and support on the reform of the vocational education and training systems of other countries since the 1990s.

In this process, consultancy is viewed in the context of an external impetus for systemic processes of change on the part of BIBB. An increasing trend is that government institutions and organisations from Germany and abroad have been approaching BIBB with questions concerning topics of VET. The success of the German system has found its basis in five core elements of dual VET. It is the objective of consultancy to align country-specific requirements to the core elements of dual VET in order to support reform processes in other countries.

For more Information read the brochure "Modernisation Of Vocational Education And Training - The International Consultancy Adopted By BIBB".

GOVET at EU Conference in Amsterdam

On 16 - 17 February 2016, the Dutch EU Presidency held a conference in Amsterdam on Vocational Education and Training. The title of the conference was “Skills for a lifetime – towards a future proof VET”. “Internationalization of VET” was one of the three conference topics. GOVET was introduced in a workshop on mobility and cooperation outside of Europe. As a recent study by the EU Commission has shown, the German strategy on “one-stop” international VET cooperation is a good practice example for developing international cooperation in the field. GOVET was invited to share Germany’s practical experiences in the implementation of the strategy. GOVET representatives Ms Maren Verfürth and Mr. Philipp Lassig presented in particular experiences in the area of VET cooperation outside of Europe made by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Messages were among other things: Internationalization of VET is a broad field, not only comprising mobility programs but also bilateral and regional cooperation as well as VET export. GOVET confirmed furthermore that internationalization of VET is highly important. Global challenges, such as the refugee crisis, the weak reputation of VET and the need to develop stronger VET systems by learning from others – all of this requires international cooperation. The conference participants were highly interested in GOVET. Conference results regarding internationalization of VET included recommendations to bring more stakeholders together and to build upon the many existing but little recognized cooperation activities. These recommendations will be included in the envisioned “New Skills Agenda” by the EU Commission.

“Interim conclusions on bilateral cooperation in VET” - article released in BWP 06/2015

In the 2012 memorandum relating to vocational education and training (VET) cooperation, seven European countries resolved to cooperate more closely with one another in response to youth unemployment and the shortage of skilled workers in Europe. Cooperation agreements have now been implemented in all partner countries. These reveal similarities and differences both in the content-related design as well as in the nature and speed of implementation. A newly released article by Dr. Claudia Schreier in BWP 06/2015 draws some initial interim conclusions based on experiences of the German Office for International Cooperation in VET (GOVET) at BIBB.
