Vocational training is one of the main focuses of German development cooperation. Only well trained professionals contribute to the economic, social and environmental development of a country. Functioning education systems that meet the current challenges of an increasingly technical world are essential.

German vocational training has an excellent reputation worldwide. This applies to both training in the workplace and at school. Our seminars are therefore aimed at teachers, trainers or VET leaders. Depending on the target group, we address basic pedagogical elements, curricula and their development
or change management processes. We also discuss the use of media or develop it together with our participants. The use of electronic media is a matter of course for us. Especially for teachers, we show different methods for educational design and analyse their use depending on the respective teaching
phase. Together with our participants, we analyse the concept of competence and emphasise the achievement of a competence to act as a general objective of vocational training.

Ideally, we complete our seminars with excursions to training companies, educational material manufacturers, educational fairs or through visits to German school classes.

In the area of quality assurance, we highlight possibilities; question them critically with regard to their applicability as well as the aim and validity of evaluations.
