The Donor Committee for dual Vocational Education and Training

Vocational education and training (VET) has always been an important pillar in the development cooperation of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. VET projects and programs – including such with dual approaches – have been implemented in cooperation with their project partners for many years. In order to make even better use of their experience and expertise in this area, the four countries founded the Donor Committee for dual Vocational Education and Training – DC dVET.
