and training

The Future VET Skills project aims to build the capacities of trainers and teachers in Egyptian vocational schools towards enabling them to deliver technical and soft skills which are considered critical for the jobs of the future in the automotive industry in line with Industry 4.0 and globalization requirements.

We aim to empower a new generation of automotive technicians in Egypt and meet the needs of the growing European market. This involves developing skills in areas like E-mobility, programming, robotics, industry 4.0, cognitive abilities, self-leadership, entrepreneurship, and digital skills. Our project focuses on providing trainers with the necessary soft and technical skills that are in high demand for future jobs but lacking in Egyptian vocational schools. We also provide them with effective teaching methods and tools to enhance knowledge transfer, learner motivation, and overall learning experience.

Our approach will be documented in a published handbook, serving as a best-practice guide for improving vocational trainers’ qualifications to meet the demands of the global 4th industrial revolution. We also have a component dedicated to developing the next generation of vocational training leaders, following internationally recognized German standards. This ensures the sustainability of quality training and facilitates technician mobility between Egypt and Europe. Our project partners have extensive experience in managing and developing vocational education and strong connections with relevant industries. We build upon the existing vocational schools in Egypt, which have been developed in line with the German Dual Education system.
