Newsletter on Indo-German VET cooperation

GOVET and the National Skills Network (NSN) from India run a joint newsletter series. It focuses on core topics of vocational education and training in both countries and the bilateral VET cooperation of BMBF.

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 Dual Model. India has been a strong advocate of the German Dual Model and efforts are made to establish a Dual system in the Indian context.

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 and the scope for industry engagement through apprenticeship. The articles can be found in the section "Stories from our Partner Network" of "Skill Times".

  • Skill Times, 10 April: In the section "Stories from our Partner Network" you will find an article on German Dual VET and Indian Skill Development, jointly written by GOVET and NSN.
    Another main topic of the Newsletter in general are the challenges that COVID-19 poses for Indian vocational training on the one hand and the professional world on the other hand.
