International Cooperations

Coverbild: BWP 6/2014

The growing worldwide interest in dual initial vocational training has intensified international cooperation among stakeholders and institutions involved in vocational education and training. This issue of BWP (Vocational Training in Research and Practice) points out the parameters, approaches and strategies of international cooperation, and sheds light on selected cooperations between Germany and individual partner countries. In 2013 the German government passed a common strategy on international vocational training cooperation from a single source. Government department representatives deliver an initial verdict on its success.
