Vocational Training 4.0

A company cannot face the digital transformation without qualified staff. And those who work in vocational education must adjust to changed qualification requirements as well. This is why we at DEKRA Media have developed a multi-media training on the topic of “vocational training 4.0” on behalf of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB).

Digital transformation has by now reached what we in Germany call the Mittelstand: small and medium-sized businesses. The study “Unternehmen Zukunft: Transformation trifft Tradition” (for which the Commerzbank has interviewed 4 000 companies) shows that 65 % of German small and mid-sized companies already enable their employees to implement digitization projects and provide the necessary resources. And according to another survey, more than two thirds are actively looking for skilled personnel to help them master the challenges of an increasingly digital economy.

The reorientation of vocational training has two dimensions: it is about learning for a digital, interconnected economy, and the learning itself takes place with interconnected digital media and technologies. The compact and practical solutions in our multi-media training reflect this development.

I am convinced that as job descriptions become more flexible and more digital, vocational training has to follow suit. A modern training company is characterized by cross-facility education and latitude for learning, it values informal learning and includion of learning media and, in doing so, pro-actively deals with digital transformation.

Our multi-media training can be accessed on the vocational training community www.foraus.de: Digitalisierung der Arbeits- und Berufswelt – Gestaltung der betrieblichen Berufsausbildung im Kontext von Industrie 4.0
