EduPro Summit organized in Bucharest. German ambassador Meier-Klodt urges Romania’s decision makers to support dual education

Germany’s Ambassador in Bucharest Cord Meier-Klodt on Thursday urged Romania’s decision makers to get involved in the development of the dual education system as a real chance for the future of the Romanian society.

“It is very important to the society’s prosperity that the education system meet the requirements of the economy today. To prosper, economy certainly needs top engineers and skilled craftsmen, and those who enroll for vocational training receive that recognition on the market. My message to all the decision makers in attendance is to please continue supporting the dual education system. It is not about choosing between tertiary or professional education, but about finding the perfect balance between both (…) It is not about or-or, but about both-and, and of course, an important role for dual education, (…) without unnecessary internal struggles, but simply by taking up seriously the duties for the good of the children. That’s not hard, let’s do it! “said Meier-Klodt at the” EduPro Summit # 1 – Educator for the Future” conference organised by the German Embassy in Bucharest, in partnership with the Ministry of National Education.

The German diplomat showed that dual education is not the end of a promising career, but in fact, someone can set on it a solid foundation for a successful career.

According to him, there are many obstacles to overcome when it comes to steering toward a national dual education network, and a career should be chosen according to the interest and abilities of the child.

“We have to move toward a system that includes everyone, including the less-developed areas of the country, and I think that should be a political objective. And we are sending a political signal in this direction. The synergistic contribution of various players is needed. Nobody can succeed alone in this endeavour. It is for this reason that we have decided to bring together all the significant stakeholders at this conference for the first time,” the German official said.

The conference opened in the presence of Romania’s interim Education Minister Rovana Plumb; state secretary of the Ministry of National Education Florin Lixandru, other representatives of the relevant institutions and big companies.
