Germany promotes skilled labour in GMS

BANGKOK, Sept 10  - Thailand and Germany have addressed the skilled labour deprivation in the Greater Mekong Sub-region through the promotion of the “Dual Vocational Education” scheme by providing in-company trainings to vocational students.

Thai Office of Vocational Education Commission in cooperation with German International Cooperation (GIZ) opened the first workshop on in-company-trainer development in Bangkok starting from today and closing on Friday.

The workshop will gain input from to participants and it will be used to assess the current demand for trainer competency as the first step to achieve the goal. Three other workshops will be held by February 2015.

GIZ Regional Director Christian Stüer said at the opening ceremony that the ultimate goal is to develope an In-Company-Trainer Certificate with a Training and Certification System for the private sector, starting in Thailand and Vietnam and later throughout the Mekong Region.
