    Dual vocation training in Phl questioned

     
    TWO lawmakers on Tuesday called for a congressional inquiry into the viability of a proposal to implement dual vocation training in the Philippines.
    Reps. Rufus Rodriguez and his brother Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. filed House Resolution 1034, which urges the House Committee on Basic Education and Culture to find out whether it can really help address the unemployment problems in the Philippines.
    The authors said Germany practices a dual education system, which combines apprenticeships in a company and vocational education at a vocational school in one course.
    In the Duales Ausbildungssystem, young German people can learn one of around 356 apprenticeship occupations where the precise skills and theory taught are strictly regulated and defined by national standards.
    The Rodriguez brothers said as one part of the dual education course, students are trained in a company for three to five days a week and the company is responsible for ensuring that students get the standard quantity and quality of training set down in the training descriptions for each trade.
    According to the authors, this practical training may be complemented by more practical lessons at workshops run by the guilds and chamber of commerce in order to compensate for the bias caused by training at only one company.
    They said the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) is pushing for the implementation of Germany's dual vocational training in the country to create more jobs and make growth inclusive.
    They also said Henry Schumacher, ECCP's vice president for external affairs, is planning to reintroduce Germany's dual vocational training into the country together with the European Innovation Technology and Science Center (EITSC).
    "It is best to invite all concerned, particularly the Department of Education (DepEd), the ECCP and other agencies and entities which may shed light and resolve the issue," Rodriguez said.
