Philippines / Gov’t urged to adopt German dual vocational system

Vice President Jejomar Binay has called on the government to look into Germany’s dual vocational system and see how it could help reduce unemployment in the Philippines.

The German dual vocational system combines apprenticeships in a company and vocational education at a vocational school. The in-firm training lasts from two to three and a half years and the trainees receive a certificate at the end of the training.

“Germany has a very strong dual vocational system and this is one of the reasons why unemployment among the German youth is low by international standards,” Binay said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We hope we can apply a similar scheme in the Philippines especially with the implementation of the K-12 program and we look forward to a possible cooperation with Germany on this in the future,” he said.

During his working visit in Germany, Binay said he met with German Labor Minister Dr. Ursula von der Leyen to discuss the matter.

“They are offering us how we can adopt and use this especially now we have K-12 program…,” he pointed out.
