The German Dual Education System is one of the cornerstones of the successful brand Made in Germany due to which a small nation of only 80 million people is able to be the world champion in exports for six consecutive years.

The system is widely practiced in Germany for over 350 officially-recognized training occupations. It is also adopted in several European countries, notably Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and France, and for some years now in China, India and other countries in Asia.

The model fosters joint educational responsibility between the training centre and collaborating companies, which creates the most unique combination and synergy between learning and working. It also leads to a constant modernizing of the curricula and guarantees an up-to-date learning that follows the developments of the economy.
