Mr. Ta Van Minh, Vice Rector of LILAMA 2, together with Mr. Frank Schulze, Integrated Expert, welcomed and presented to all students an overview of the individual steps of the cooperative training and its general results. During the piloting of the Cooperative Training not only the occupational standards and training programmes were developed, training phases in the company and at the college in-line with the training programmes conducted by appointed in-company trainers and qualified teachers of LILAMA 2, as well as the equivalence with German training regulations confirmed by competent German chambers.
The students were also asked about the future plans by Mr. Jan Otto, Development Advisor of GIZ. Some of the trainees said that they had found a job in the company where they completed the in-company training. Others said they had to apply for a job after graduation.
