Allowing digital media to take effect in vocational education and training requires a targeted and considered selection of media formats based on media-pedagogical concepts. But just how competent are company-based training personnel when selecting and using digital media? As part of a BIBB research project, a “media-pedagogical competence” model has been developed which forms the basis of an online survey of company-based training personnel. The results from this survey involving the self-assessment of media and IT competence are presented in the article, concluding with considerations regarding the need for continuing VET in the context of a company-based digitalisation strategy.
