Congratulations to Metal Cutting-CNC key teachers of LILAMA 2 for proving their professional competence!
Eight key teachers of LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) passed the final examination for Metal Cutting-CNC. The examination took place in two parts from 25 – 29 October 2018 and from 19-23 January.2019. It was conducted by examiners dispatched by the Handwerkskammer (HWK) Erfurt.
Mr Holger Bustro, the chairman of the HWK examination committee and metal-cutting-CNC expert elaborated that “it has become obvious that the key teachers of LILAMA 2 build upon a solid foundation, on competencies that they have acquired during the previous metal cutting trainings as part of a comprehensive further training concept for TVET teachers and trainers in the region.”
Mr Bustro explained further that “all eight examination candidates mastered the challenge and have passed the final exam for Metal Cutting-CNC. The majority of the teachers have reached good results of 81-93% and some were even outstanding by achieving impressive 97 %.
The second examiner of the committee, Mr Hartmut Stein, confirmed that “the examination has been organised and implemented oriented on German standards and examination regulations. LILAMA 2 has generated perfect conditions with well-equipped, modern training workshops, training programmes based on German standards and in particular, well qualified teachers. All those are prerequisites for providing high quality training comparable to high industrialised countries.”
“The examination committee would like to congratulate LILAMA 2 to the outstanding result and encourages the teachers to consolidate and apply their competences for the regular training of trainees and to continue on the path of life-long learning”
The CNC team leaders Mr Le Tuyen Giao and Mr Nguyen Hong Tien stated mutually “It has been hard work to reach this high competence level which is comparable to the final examination of skilled workers in Germany. Our team is glad to have passed this final milestone successfully.” They further pointed out “We all are very aware that we need to utilise our capacity. We are encouraged to multiply our acquired competence in the regular training process, in a next step also for further trainings of teachers and industrial workers.”
The trainings and examinations are 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.
