Politics wants to provide more money for vocational education and training

Not only in China, but also in Germany, there is a great shortage of qualified workers. However, vocational training is a decisive factor in the further development of the economy and new technologies. “This is extremely important for Germany as a business location,” said Johanna Wanka (CDU) at a joint symposium held by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the Central Association of German Crafts (ZDH) on higher vocational training.

Germany is fond of exporting its model of dual training in companies and vocational schools abroad. At home, however, there is still a long way to go on the apprenticeship market. In order to raise vocational training again more, the following measures are planned:

An early orientation program for career starters in vocational education

Dual vocational training – secondary school educaton in addition to vocational training

Career prospects within vocational education and training to become “masters” and technicians ”

Especially in vocational education and training, more and more highly qualified employees are in demand. For this purpose, it is particularly important to provide the appropriate promotion opportunities. This is also a concern of i-Vocedu.
