German Embassy and the US Department of Commerce Adopt Strategic Partnership for Workforce Training
June 8, 2015-The German Embassy hosted the German Marshall Fund Joint Declaration of Workforce Training on June 5 for signatures adopting a strategic partnership between the US and Germany in Workforce Training to help the US adopt the German Dual Education system in America. This is in continuation of the ongoing German Skills Initiative, a US national campaign endorsed by the German Embassy and the US Department of Commerce.

In addition, the German Embassy also distributed the German Embassy White Paper entitled “Expanding Apprenticeships in the US: Lessons Learned from the German Dual Education System". I am humbled and honored that they have printed and released this paper that I co-authored with Bob Lerman, (a US apprenticeship expert) of the Urban Institute.
AMskills supports this Joint Declaration and is excited about the future changes this will bring to Advanced Manufacturing apprenticeship programs in America!
