„Gut ausgebildete Menschen sind der Motor für nachhaltiges wirtschaftliches Wachstum und gesellschaftliche Entwicklung. Flexible Qualifizierung und funktionierende Arbeitsmärkte unterstützen Chancengerechtigkeit und sozialen Ausgleich, folgen sie dem Leitbild sozialer und ökologischer Marktwirtschaft.

“Well-qualified people are the engine that drives sustainable economic growth and social development. Flexible training and efficient job markets support equal opportunities and social equality when based on the guiding principle of a social and ecological market economy.

Against the backdrop of globalisation and technological change, technical and vocational education and training are a vital component of life-long learning. This includes initial and continual training in companies, schools and elsewhere. Training is offered in long-term courses, modular short courses or directly on the job. Although training does often lead to recognised certification, it also enables individuals and companies to advance even without formal recognition. (…)

Taking economic and social aspects into consideration, on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) GIZ provides support for developing, emerging and transition countries in planning technical and vocational education and training and efficient labour markets.”
