Course "Project Oriented Fundamental Metal Training" marks the start of the further training programme 2018 for teaching staff of LILAMA 2
The training course "Project Oriented Fundamental Metal Training" for metal technology and mechatronics trainers is being conducted at LILAMA 2 International Technology College in Long Thanh/Dong Nai.
The two weeks training course is the kickoff event of a series of project oriented further trainings in 2018 for teaching staff of supported industrial occupations.
18 pre-qualified practice trainers for Metal Cutting-CNC, Construction Mechanics and Mechatronics develop their competence in planning, implementing and assessing of semi-complex project works. All participants will manufacture independently a mechanical “Ball Dividing Device” that can be controlled automatically or operated manually. Besides enhancing their technological competences, the training focuses also on developing, implementing and assessing practical training units by applying the four-step training method in their regular training work.
Furthermore, the course provides an insight into practice training similar to the training which is implemented in German companies to the participants. The two German trainers (Mr Ralf Hill – Integrated Expert and Mr Johannes Frey – Development Advisor) of the course convey a positive work attitude to manual work and clarify the responsibilities of the participants in their role as a trainer and mentor of regular trainees in their daily work at the college. i.e. besides the provision of technical knowledge and skills, a teaching staff needs to contribute to forming the personality traits of the trainees that are indispensable for a successful professional career in companies, such as mental and physical endurance, quality awareness, self-confidence, reliability, social and environmental responsibility, solidarity, punctuality, and the capacity for a critical self-assessment.
In a next, the new acquired competences of LILAMA 2 trainers will be further developed and consolidated by passing through international trainings for technical communication, testing and measuring as well as manufacturing complex project work by machine tools.
This and the following training courses are part of an comprehensive further training concept for teaching staff of LILAMA2 College. The concept aims to build up the professional competence of vocational trainers comparable to the competence of a German skilled worker in industrial occupations as Metal Cutting-CNC, Construction Mechanics, Industrial Electronics and Mechatronics .
The training is held within the field of activity “Support of Centres of Excellence (CoEs)”as part of the Vietnamese-German Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam. The programme is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Twelve leaders from relevant departments of the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET), Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT), Dong Nai Provincial Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (DoLISA Dong Nai), Ho Chi Minh City Association of Mechanics and Electrics (HAMEE), Vietnam Federation of Construction Associations and Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI) have successfully completed the further training and study tour on the development and implementation of demand-driven and practice oriented vocational training offers, focusing on the occupation “Electronics Technician for Energy and Building Technology” in Germany from 26 August, 2018 to 8 September 2018.
Representatives of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany – Dr Wolfgang Manig, Deputy Head of Mission and Head of Economic Section, and Ms Luisa Bergfeld, First Secretary, Deputy Head of German Development Cooperation, together with Ms Simone Wunsch, Country Director of KfW Development Bank in Vietnam and officers from KfW and GIZ visited the Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI) on 10 September 2018 to get an overview of the planned and ongoing activities of the technical and financial development cooperation.
