For many years, technical high school education has been perceived as inferior compared to higher education although, in reality, technical education graduates enjoy having a faster transition from the moment they graduate toward using their know-how which gives them a greater chance of landing a permanent job first. Effective dual education programs that utilize a combination of the school curriculum and practical skill training tend to be a healthier approach to developing a skilled workforce and meeting workforce demands.
On behalf of the AmCham Industry Committee, we invite you to join us for a meeting on the "Dual Education System in Poland– a Win-Win Situation for Business and Graduates." The meeting speakers will be Ms. Eliza Kruczkowska, Chief Innovation Officer, Polish Development Fund; Ms. Jolanta Jaworska, Government & Regulatory Affairs Director IBM and Vice Chairman of AmCham; Ms. Barbara Kaleta, Member of the Management Board, HR Director, CMC Polska and Ms. Aneta Muskała, Vice President of the Board International Paper Kwidzyn and the Co-Chair of the AmCham Industry Committee.
The meeting will discuss the benefits and challenges of the dual education system in Poland as we exchange best practices. Some points of discussion will include:
- How to preserve the quality of dual vocational training?
- The key incentives for businesses to get engaged in dual vocational training;
- The best cooperation strategies between various entities (i.e. the local government, businesses, and graduates);
- Available tools and funds.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, November 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. To attend click "I will attend button" to confirm your presence. The Webex webinar link will be sent out to all registrants prior to the event.
