How can we train for a world of work 4.0?
Vocational training and education has to keep up with the changed requirements the “world of work 4.0” imposes on its professionals. Professor Friedrich Hubert Esser, President of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training, talks to Dr. Peter Littig about the changes that are already happening and the ones we can expect within the next ten years. A special focus of the interview is on the topic of key qualifications.
Professor Esser has been President of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) since 2011 and honorary professor at the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Cologne since 2005. Between 2004 and 2011, he was head of the vocational education department at the German Confederation of Skilled Crafts (Zentralverband des Deutschen Handwerks.).
