German-Thai Dual Excellence Education (GTDEE)

German-Thai Dual Excellence Education is a two-year vocational education programme in which students work and study at the same time. This “Dual Vocation” concept was developed in Germany and, because of its remarkable success, has been adopted in many countries all over the world. In 2012, the German-Thai Chamber of Commerce (GTCC) and German International Cooperation (GIZ) brought it to Thailand in co-operation with founding company partners B. Grimm, BMW (Thailand) and Robert Bosch.

GTDEE is part of the VETnet project (Vocational Education and Training Network) funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and supported by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK). Similar vocational training projects are being implemented by the German Chambers of Commerce in Brazil, China, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain and Thailand. GTDEE is further supported by the Ministry of Education of Thailand.

GTDEE is German-Thai Dual Excellence Education. It is a two-year vocational education programme in which students work and study at the same time.

The “dual” vocation concept was developed in Germany and, because of its remarkable success, has gained an international reputation as well as recognition. Therefore, it has been adopted in many countries all over the world and is now making its way into Thailand, where the impetus for the initiative came from the private sector.

In April/May 2013, the German-Thai Chamber of Commerce (GTCC) and German International Cooperation (GIZ), in co-operation with founding company partners B. Grimm, BMW (Thailand) and Robert Bosch launched this highly-qualified dual training programme in the mechatronics, mechanics, automotive, power electronics as well as electric fields. GTDEE is supported by the Ministry of Education of Thailand and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Thailand.

Goal of GTDEE

The main objective of vocational training is to produce skilled workers with flexible qualifications who are mobile and capable of working in their chosen fields. GTDEE intends to share best practices from Germany’s vocational education system as well.
