Visiting / information programmes for education and labour ministries of other countries interested
The Hamburg Institute of Vocational Education and Training (HIBB) offers visiting and information programmes for education and labour ministries of other countries interested in dual training. Thus they can gain an insight in the cooperation between vocational school and enterprises in Hamburg. In addition, they get information about school structures, curricula, training contents and concepts (e.g. learning field teaching concept) etc. In terms of final examinations in the context of dual training there is a close cooperation with the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce.
Counselling regarding transfer / implementation of dual structures in other countries
The HIBB has the opportunity to conclude a cooperation agreement with interested countries on the implementation of dual structures, if appropriate conditions (e.g. legal basis) were created. The experts of the HIBB can make potential assessments in the context of short-term assignments in the country concerned, develop concepts and give advice. This includes management education and training of teachers on a „train the trainer“ concept as well as providing tools for evaluation and assurance standards. In addition, the experts can support PR measures.
For the realization the HIBB requires partners, who are responsible for the formal application process, back office organization and reporting. Conditions for the participation of HIBB in such cooperation projects include secured financial means e.g. by giz, the EU or the State Government concerned.
