Overview and Activities

DUALpro

DUALpro is the brand under which we offer a range of Vocational Education & Training services, based on the German Dual System that combines theory and industrial experience, to member companies.

The German Dual System of Vocational Education & Training (VET), has grown and proven to be very successful over the last centuries. It is perfectly placed to bridge the gap between the increasing need for theoretical knowledge, as well as real world application of these skills. The German system encourages direct involvement and ownership of the industry in the educational process, and is in demand all over the globe – even so in India.

In light of the ‘Make in India’ campaign, that aims to encourage domestic and multinational companies to manufacture their products in India, the role of industry-driven and supported VET becomes even more critical. As market conditions change, qualified and specialized personnel will continue to be in high demand, to operate the machinery of the future.

The cooperation between India and Germany, on VET, has gained momentum in the recent years. The idea of taking a cluster approach, and trying out dual principals in a holistic environment of selected industry clusters, has found many supporters.

We contribute to this collaboration by helping you meet your need for quality VET, and eventually well-skilled staff, to successfully achieve your business goals and objectives.

VETnet

VETnet is the German Chambers worldwide network for cooperative, work-based Vocational Education & Training, a project sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF), coordinated by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) and carried out by nine participating German chambers abroad (AHKs) – one of which is the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce.

As part of DUALpro, the VETnet project has come a long way. After establishing a VET Council and specialized working groups in 2014, intensive discussions started and brought industry representatives together.

In cooperation with some of these companies, we conducted a pilot course in Metal Working in early 2015, together with the school partner, Don Bosco Private Industrial Training Institute in Pune. The training showed positive results, in terms of progress of the trainees’ learning, as well as feedback from the participating companies. Based on this, several companies requested IGCC to extend the course and develop a one year training for Industry Mechanics. We have started offering this since November 2015.

Our course enables participants to focus on practical skills and applications, get shop floor experience in their respective training companies, and join the working world immediately after graduation, with great prospects for their future.

You can reach out to us for upcoming course schedule and timelines.
