Co-operation between Educational Institutions and Enterprises in Technical and Vocational Education

A Seminar for Key Personnel from Africa and Asia Berlin, Germany, 02-12 May 1995

The International Project on Technical and Vocational Education (UNEVOC) is a project of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Its purpose is to contribute to the development and improvement of technical and vocational education in Member States.

UNEVOC works in three programme areas:

Programme Area A deals with the international exchange of experience and the promotion of studies on policy issues. It is devoted to system development in technical and vocational education.

Programme Area B is devoted to strengthening national research and development capabilities, that is to the development of infrastructures.

Programme Area C concerns access to data bases and documentation and strengthening of the UNEVOC Network, in other words, with information and communication.

Under Programme Area B, UNESCO held, in co-operation with the German Foundation for International Development (DSE), an International Seminar for Key Personnel on "Co-operation between Educational Institutions and Enterprises in Technical and Vocational Education" in Berlin, Germany, from 02-12 May 1995.


The German Foundation for International Development (DSE) is an institution which provides a forum for dialogue on development policy and the initial and advanced training of specialists and executive personnel from developing and transitional countries. The institutional donor is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ). Since 1960, the DSE has given advanced professional training to more than 100 000 decision makers, specialists and executive personnel from more than 140 countries.

The Industrial Occupations Promotion Centre (ZGB) of the DSE offers advanced training in the field of vocational training. The ZGB's programmes aim to

· give more people in the developing countries access to vocational training opportunities,

· improve the efficiency of vocational training in the developing countries,

· support the introduction and further development of in-plant forms of vocational training in the sectors of industry, crafts and services,

· promote co-operation between school and in-plant vocational training agencies (dual approach),

· make it easier for target groups on the brink of poverty in the informal sector to set up their own business by undergoing crafts-oriented basic vocational training,

· support the processes of reform in the countries of Eastern Europe by promoting vocational training.
