Another year of work ahead of us.
Dual education is a system of vocational education and training for the pursuit of a profession, which acquires the knowledge, skills and competences necessary for the profession. It is characterized in particular by a close connection between general and vocational theoretical education in secondary vocational school with practical training at a specific employer.
International project IDES (Introduction of Dual Education System and Identification of its Quality) responds to the lack of practice in schools and supports the dual education system. As part of this project, two online meetings of partner organizations from Latvia, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia were held.
At the meeting, the partners presented their current status, what has happened and what still needs to be worked out and planned. The nearest deadlines were set and the partners divided the tasks.
Four countries have also worked on the final version of the Comparative Analysis of Dual Education Systems of the participating countries and it will be possible to proceed to the Slovak version of the document and to control the quality of the output.
