Iran to provide Germany with required workforce

TEHRAN, Jun. 24 (MNA) – An initial cooperation agreement will be signed between Iran and Germany with regard to providing a part of German workforce to be trained in Iran.

Iran Technical and Vocational Training Organization (ITVTO) and German University of Applied Sciences of SMEs (FHM) will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) aimed at empowering and supplying a part of the workforce needed by Germany.

For this purpose, an initial agreement on training of Germany’s needed workforce from Iran was reached during the meeting held between ITVTO President Soleiman Pakseresht, and Doust Mohammadian, Iran representative and project manager of FHM.

It is stipulated that Iran TVTO will make arrangements for skill training, skill certificate accreditation and German language courses for Iranian job applicants in Germany. Applicants will then be introduced to FHM for the final training course and absorption in the German labor market after passing the language test held by Iran National Organization of Educational Testing (NOET).

Referring to the draft of the MoU, ITVTO will be the main partner and counterpart of FHM in the fields of technical, vocational education and training (TVET).

In the meeting, Pakseresht indicated that Iran TVTO’s Instructor Training Center & Technical and Vocational Researches (ITC) will be ready to provide training skill facilities and space as well as holding German language courses with focus on TVET in accordance with TELC standards and introduce applicants to NOET.

Based on these discussions, both parties agreed on exchange of TVET trainers and trainees, skill training curriculum development as well as holding joint international events. The MoU is set to be disclosed to the media after its finalization in coming days.

FHM has previously signed an MoU with Sharif University of Technology on holding joint civil engineering courses, taking German and English languages test and establishing joint research center of environment and energy studies. FHM is a German university distinguished in the field of supplying the skilled and expertise workforce for small and medium sized enterprises and has a close relation with German industries.
