Strengthening vocational training and education, creating perspectives - the German dual system
Many countries are interested in the German Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. The below film presents the diverse range of VET cooperation activities of the German Federal Government. It explains the objective of the German Federal Government and presents several of its projects in partner countries.
…For example the Republic of Moldova:
This small country at the Eastern border of the European Union has become a popular target for investors thanks to its short distance to the EU member states, low salaries and favorable tax conditions for manufacturing. Nonetheless, relatively few new jobs are being created in Moldova. Potential international but also local investors face considerable lack of young skilled workers – one of the reasons is the high work migration of Moldovans to other countries: Many look for a reasonable job outside of their country. As a consequence, there is an insufficient number of skilled workers, especially for those professions which are currently on high demand. This is the main reason why, since 2015, the Federal Republic of Germany has been supporting the Republic of Moldova to introduce and implement the German dual Vocational Education and Training system (VET) in the framework of its bilateral economic cooperation with the project “Structural Reform of the educational system”. The main goal of this project is to improve the educational and institutional framework for the implementation of demand oriented, dual vocational education and training. Already with success! So far, about 50 companies in the Republic of Moldova have participated to train skilled workers for their own demand, but also for the overall demand of the Moldovan labor market. Naturally, German investors have joined in these efforts, and in cooperation with local colleges, the German dual system has been successfully introduced in Bălți, Căuşeni and Orhei.
