The secretariat was appointed by the members of the Donor Committee. As part of a public tender the mandate for this was granted to the consortium consisting of Swisscontact, INBAS GmbH, KEK-CDC Consultants and L&R Social Research. The secretariat is under the direction of Swisscontact.

Responsibility for the secretariat lies with the secretariat manager. She is supported in her work by two collaborators and three country representatives who ensure the four member countries are incorporated in the secretariat.

Field of activity

The secretariat coordinates the activities of the Donor Committee and supports this in the operative implementation. The main tasks of the secretariat include positioning the theme of dual vocational education and training in development cooperation, establishing effective knowledge and networking management, and reviewing and communicating approaches, experiences and results.

The secretariat management is the official contact point for enquiries to the Donor Committee and for information which needs to be shared with or via the Donor Committee.
