8 From School to Work Education/Training and Labour Market School + Vocational School Jobs in Companies Mismatch!!! German VET School + Vocational Training = Jobs in Companies Match!!! because companies are involved

9 From School to Work

10 German VET The five key elements co-operation of government and industry or public private partnership learning within the work process acceptance of national quality standards qualified VET staff insitutionalized research and consultancy

11 German VET The Dual System Training in Companies and Schools Years Training Period on the job training in companies 3-4 days a week based on training contract between company and trainee theoretical training in vocational schools 1-2 days a week run by the state

12 German VET Advantages

13 German VET Advantages

14 for the State German VET Advantages lower costs for vocational training lower rate of (youth) unemployment much better match between vocational school qualification and labour market demands improving standards of qualification levels, labour output quality and added value better competiveness of the economy less social tension

15 German VET for Example

16 Development of training regulations federal ministries Training regulations Employers organisations Chamber organisations duration designation of occupation training contents: decision making skills (knowledge, skills) trade unions Länder (state Ministries)

17 Role of the IHK Organization

18 The Vocational Training Act Vocational Training Act from 1969, updated in April 2005 in-firm training follows the same law all over Germany! equal legal relationship between trainee and instructor equal administration of apprenticeships through IHKs equal exams administrated through IHKs possibility to work abroad during vocational training every profession has its own national decree contents of apprenticeship contents of intermediate and final examination Vocational Training Act also contains regulations for further vocational training vocational retraining

19 Dual VET Germany is convinced! Main characteristics: initial, young people training responsibility shared between public and private sector training based on practical requirements of the companies cooperation of stakeholders, such as - Ministries (Bund and Länder) - IHKs and other chambers - Employers associations - Trade unions stakeholder jointly develop qualification profiles and training contents and schedules final evidence of skills provided by examinations

20 German VET Key Element Chambers of Commerce are responsible as competent bodies by law (VET act from 1969/2005) for organization, registration, examination, certification for quality assurance throughout the whole training process For representing and organizing the companies needs, interests and inputs in co-operation with business associations

21 Role of the IHKs support and assist companies - that initially want to start vocational training - that need help during the vocational training promote the training assess, certify and develop ability of companies to train provide and register the training contracts withdraw training permission in case of law violations support and assist the trainees conceive examinations (comparable all over Germany) examine trainees and instructors develop the training contents and the training system

22 Just an Impression Organisation of interim and final exams

23 Conclusions German dual training is an excellent system for qualifying skilled workers. It leads to a win-win-situation for companies, government and young people, altogether. But it s also a very complex system. It works because of its history and long tradition in German culture.

24 Role of the DIHK Division for Vocational Education and Training: Partner for the IHKs in the field of VET coordinate information and recommendation provide services, documents, material for instructors or examiners participate in developing qualification profiles / VET-standards provide good conditions and regulations for vocational training in the companies

25 Facts and figures German economy spends 30 billion per year on vocational training approx. 350 nationwide recognized training occupations (270 in the field of industry, trade and services) over 1,6 Mio. trainees altogether, new contracts approx companies providing training approx vocational training instructors only in the field of industry, trade and services over professional experts work on a honorary basis in the examination boards of the IHKs average costs of a trainee in the dual system a year:

26 German VET for Export AHK Business Field German VET is very attractive for other countries these days German Chambers of Commerce Worldwide (AHK) extend their activities to promote adaptation of key elements of German VET activities are spread all over the world, i.e. Logistics: Hongkong Hotel Business: Portugal Accounting: Argentina Mechatronics: India Maintainance: China a lot more can and will be done such as by the AHK USA
