The German Skills Initiative: Observations on its Application in the U.S.

Posted by Margaret Lamb - On October 31, 2013 (EST)

The German Embassy launched the German Skills Initiative in the U.S. one year ago to encourage German companies to work with government, workforce and education agencies to address issues related to a shortage of skilled workers. A U.S. delegation of Federal and state officials, businesses and colleges visited Germany this summer to learn more about the German dual system of vocational education and on-the-job learning. This webinar will provide an overview of the German Skills Initiative and the Dual System as well as showcase initiatives around the country that are blending the German model with American workforce development that include Colleges, High Schools and Registered Apprenticeship.
