A delegation from the Goethe Institute Washington including a group of educational experts from the US visited CBS-Gaggenau on Oct 10, 2013

On behalf of a request from the Goethe institute a group of thirteen decision makers from all over the US visited our school to learn about the dual system and its possibilities. After visiting various other institutions in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg one of the last stops was at CBS-Gaggenau.
Since a lot of German companies are working in the US and since president Obama mentioned the German Dual System as a role model for vocational training, there is a growing awareness that something in the current system of vocational training might be adapted or changed.
After a brief introduction to the dual system and after discussing a lot of questions concerning the duality of the German vocational training system and its characteristics the school was toured. A visit to some classrooms and contact to students gave the group a good insight into the competency-based teaching as it is performed here.
The picture shows the participants of the delegation from different organizations and institutions around the US at CBS-Gaggenau.
