New Technologies and Dual VET

All over the world, skills requirements are changing more dynamically than ever. One key driver of this trend are the so-called new technologies. Robotics, blockchain technology, platform economy, 3D-printing, augmented and virtual reality are some of the instruments which will shape the future world of work.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) needs to respond to this development in order to keep relevant and effective. Because of its direct reference to practice, dual VET is particularly suited to play a pioneering role in this respect. In this newsletter, we shed light on the impact new technologies do and might have on dual VET in development cooperation.

DC dVET - Who we Are

The Donor Committee for dual Vocational Education and Training (DC dVET) is a cooperation between ADA, BMZ, LED and SDC. Vocational education and training - including dual approaches - have always been an important pillar in the development cooperation of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. DC dVET aims at enabling an even better use of the existing expertise by bundling the know-how. The Committee supports its members and their VET project partners, promotes coordination between them and serves as a dual VET knowledge hub for a broader public (see products and services).
