Having opened on March 2022, the PAM Programme (Partnership Approaches for Development-Oriented Vocational Training and Labour Migration) has completed half of the journey with German standard-oriented training course in metal cutting. To review and get feedback on all activities from PAM trainees, the PAM Programme has conducted a Midterm Review Workshop with PAM trainees on December 29, 2022.
The Workshop has dynamic participation of more than 40 students, in which the first session focuses on presentation of students’ opinions and feedback on following topics: Metal cutting course, German language, In-company training, Outdoor activities, Communications, etc. For each criterion, trainees will work in groups to represent their viewpoints on pros and cons, improvements, and recommendations.
In the second session of the Workshop, representatives of the PAM Programme have announced the result of 05 pre-selection candidates for linkage with German enterprise. The selection is based on results of metal cutting, German language, and German speaking ability. In addition, learning and working attitude is also considered as significant criteria in determining.
Conveying after the Workshop, PAM trainee Ho Nhut Khanh “appreciated great opportunities to share and to be listened their opinions about learning and working”. He hoped more workshops with the participation of GIZ and communication in German would be organized in the future to increase interaction and interpersonal skills.
The Workshop has created an opportunity for trainees to share their comments directly with GIZ and helped to consolidate their solution-oriented thinking, work collaboration and respect diversity among members. Besides, a closed connection between trainees and PAM Programme has been strengthened to get in-depth understanding of their current working and learning situation, thereby to consult appropriate advisories for trainees and improve further in the year 2023.
