Training the trainer

Coverbild: BWP 4/2022

Trainers and vocational school teachers support young people entering employment. They make a valuable contribution to the training and socialisation of future’s skilled workers and ensure high-quality vocational education and training. This issue of BWP looks at the acquisition and training of VET. The main focuses: new requirements created by digitalisation, sustainability and the growing heterogeneity of learners, and how training staff themselves assess their daily challenges. Objects of investigation include training needs from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective, suitable training provision and formats, and the general conditions necessary for future-oriented training.
