Skills Experts Program

Vocational education abroad according to German dual system supported by “Skills Experts Program” of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy

More and more German companies are interested in concrete support for a better qualification and securing of future skilled labour force abroad. In this regard, a high-quality vocational education based on the German dual system is of first priority for the companies. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) has responded to this demand with an appropriate initiative.

The BMWi, in cooperation with the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK), supports dual vocational education projects according to the German model in selected countries, among them Indonesia. These projects are implemented by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry Abroad (AHK) in the respective country. The so-called “Skills Experts” of the AHKs realize the projects in cooperation with companies and vocational schools.

The German-Indonesian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Indonesien = EKONID) advises German companies and their Indonesian partner companies on the contents and procedure of a needs-oriented dual vocational education and supports them in the preparation, organization and conduct of the training including examination and certification in various professions. EKONID coordinates the cooperation of all stakeholders involved and controls and assures the quality according to the German vocational education standards during the entire process.

For the implementation of the dual vocational education, the AHKs rely, if needed, on the experiences and expertise of the regional German Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Germany (IHKs) who are mandated by German statute-law with the realization of the dual vocational education on a regional level in Germany. This close inter-action between AHKs and IHKs enables the AHKs to assure a high-quality education for future skilled labour force abroad in cooperation with the companies, coordinated by DIHK in the frame of the “Skills Experts Program” of BMWi.
