EghtesadOnline: Germany’s Stiftung Bildung and Handwerk (Education and Craft Foundation) signed a memorandum of understanding with the Technical and Vocational Training Organization and Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture on Saturday.
Based on the MoU, Iranian educators and teachers of vocational schools will be trained by German experts in the field. Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development will finance the project and the Iranian side will provide the facilities and required personnel, ICCIMA’s news portal reported. The MoU stipulates that SBH will transfer its dual education system methods to the Iranian side over three years to encourage Iranian industries and private sector to train their workforce. A dual education system combines apprenticeships in a company and education at a vocational school, according to Financial Tribune.
