Training and Development - The German/European Model

About half a million German firms train 1.8 million teenagers, or 6 percent of the workforce through vocational training system.

The Vocational Academy

In 1974, the German state of baden-Wuerttemberg, together with firms such as Daimler-Benz and Bosch, started the Vocational Academy (also called Stuttgarter Educational Model). This managerial training model focuses on technology, social sciences, and business.

Now this model is offered in 8 cities. 3000 enterprises are participating.

Cooperative training by industry and educational institutions is being successfully practised in Germany.
