From 19 to 25 February 2017 were the director of the National Institute for Vocational Training (NIVT) Vietnam and the school management of Hanoi Vocational College of Technology (HACTECH) guest in Baden-Württemberg. The study trip was planned and implemented by the Landesakademie für Weiterbildung und Personalentwicklung at schools in Esslingen. The participants had the opportunity to meet senior schools for electrical engineering at potential partner schools in Lörrach, Freiburg, Lahr and Karlsruhe. Through lessons and visits to the school workshops and labs, the guests were given a deeper insight into the technical training. The Vietnamese delegation was able to gain an insight into the career opportunities of the graduates of the technical school for their typical work areas in companies, for example at Endress + Hauser GmbH in Maulburg and at Stöber Antriebstechnik GmbH in Pforzheim. At the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport and at the LAK the vocational training system and the advanced teacher training in Baden-Württemberg were presented to the Vietnamese guests.
In various workshops the other work packages of the project were planned and coordinated. The project partner SEPT works on the marketing strategy and plans the kick-off event in Hanoi. Together with the WMU, the quality management will be developed in April 2017 in a workshop in Hanoi.
