International delegations from the education sector

The international networking is paying off in many fields. Thus through the agency of the partner companies Asia Pacific and China Profis, several delegations from China came to visit FORUM in the second half of the year. The objective of the visits was to familiarize the guests with the workings of the dual system in Germany. With the help of these meetings, FORUM could sharpen its international profile and is now a well-known German educational institution to many education experts in China.

in another round of Forementrainings, FORUM together with ist partner college IVT provided, like in the previous year, professional training on the topics of role awareness, communication, leadership and teambuilding. As trainer on board again were Nikolaus Petersen and our Chinese expert Qin Ling. Our head of department/trainer Mrs.Patricia Henkel also conducted parts of the training courses, which provided professional training for a total of 74 participants. The contents of the second round were more compact than in 2011 and with the help of several case studies tailored to the training needs of the respective companies. We received great feedback and another round of trainings for 2013 has already been scheduled.
