The demand for highly qualified professionals with practical
vocational edu- cation and training is increasing worldwide.
However, manycountries do not have a
vocational education and training system comparable to the
scheme in Switzerland. Vocational education andtraining is usually
provided in schools, which seldom work together with local
industry. Otherwise, it is implemented in individual companies
andaligned to the specific needs of those organisations only.
Generic, academic and soft skills are rarely provided.This book
describes the Swiss Vocational Education and Training Initiative
India,its background, concept and results. The initiative is a
response to the requirements of Swiss companies in India, which can
only fully exploittheir growth potential when they can employ
better qualified personnel. A fascinating role concept for
implementing the dual vocationaleducation and training system in
India was designed, implemented and evaluated together with the
participating organisations, regionalvocational education and
training schools, coordinating organisations and the authorities.
The results are very promising for expansion toother regions and
occupations. The book also highlights the obstacles that must be
overcome in such a project.
