Skills Initiative: Enhancing German-American Cooperation on Workforce Training
The Skills Initiative works to introduce the German style dual training system in the US.
The German Embassy in Washington, DC presents the Skills Initiative as one of the cornerstones of its work.
Through the Skills Initiative, the German Embassy is bringing together German and American businesses and local education/training providers with the aim of developing training programs best suited to businesses’ needs. The Embassy launched the Skills Initiative to identify and spread best practices in sustainable workforce development in the USA.
Now the Embassy, through Skills Initiative, is seeking cooperation with federal states, locally convening groups of German companies and bringing them together with training providers so that they can work on the best fit for training programs in their area.
