The Dual System in Argentina
Your expertise – our challenges.
The dual system is the most important element of vocational training in Germany. Through the combination of theory with practice, the student gains a solid foundation of skills and knowledge across the company. In Argentina, the dual system was introduced by the Argentine-German Chamber of Commerce.
During the two year duration of the program, training in theory and practice are combined. Young professionals take theoretical modules in the Professional Development Center / Center for Industrial Training and practical modules at the company, which is responsible for the training of the practitioner, where he/she has the opportunity to experience a complete job training.
The company may benefit by offering a rotation according to its needs, providing the practitioner the opportunity to know the different areas and learn their activities; important aspects to consider in the future, at the end of training.
For the young it is the beginning of a professional career. At the end of two years with above-average performance the intern will be able to qualify for a scholarship in Germany, as well as the recognition of subjects in some universities of Buenos Aires. (source: http://www.ahkargentina.com.ar)
