Password: Skills Gap

 

 

Dr. Christine Benz (Training Manager Trumpf Inc.), Dr. Robin Mishra (Head of Science and Technology at German Embassy Washington, D.C.), Prof. Dr. Bernd Reissert (Professor of Political Science (Labor Market and Education Policy), former President of the Berlin School of Economics and Law and Chairman of UAS7) and Ian Trammell (Excecutive Director Mecha Force, New Jersey) will be the speakers in the transatlantic discussion on the current state and future of U.S. workforce development.

 While most countries around the world have seen an unprecedented expansion of their education and skill base over the past decades, a persistent gap still exists between the kind of knowledge and skills that are most in demand in the workplace and those that education and training systems continue to provide. In this environment, the German dual system of vocational training is increasingly seen as a major contributor to narrowing the skills gap. While this gap affects the entire U.S. workforce, it has a particularly strong impact on the American manufacturing sector, where many jobs remain unfilled because the potential workforce lacks requisite skills. This is why U.S. industries and manufacturers have increasingly implemented vocational training opportunities, which provide a combination of on-the-job training and classroom learning and offer young people certified career paths as an alternative option to university education. In Germany, the dual system of vocational training has long been successful and has especially benefited the country's smaller and mid-sized companies. Can similar vocational training systems be successfully implemented in the U.S., and how can the German vocational training model influence this process? Who are the main stakeholders from government, industry and higher education responsible for setting up successful vocational training programs in the U.S. and in Germany, and what can they report about major challenges and best practices? We invite you to join us for a transatlantic discussion on the current state and future of U.S. workforce development.
