Technical and Vocational Education and Training
Our TVET services: Qualifying people, strengthening the economy, creating prospects for all
A solid technical education is the key for sustained economic development. The nature and depth of the qualification play a decisive role in determining whether one is successful in entering the working world and earning a living. Improving initial vocational training is, at the same time, a decisive factor in determining whether a company, region, or society as a whole can keep the pathway to the future open.
TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) lays the foundation for reaching this goal. With our experience and extensive expertise in implementation, we support governments and private enterprises at numerous locations worldwide.

Advantages of Technical Vocational Education and Training
Investment in technical and commercial education produces the greatest returns in a variety of ways:
- Securing livelihoods: Well-trained young people find more employment opportunities wherever they are based.
- Driving growth: Companies can access qualified personnel to boost production and offer improved services.
- Reducing costs: Experience shows that hiring qualified local personnel is significantly more cost effective than international recruitment.
- Securing the future: By training young people and promoting continuing professional development, companies and institutions can safeguard their market position, engage skilled personnel, and nurture talent.
This is where TÜV Rheinland Academy comes in: We supply the public and private sector with services and solutions to help them deliver leading edge and attractive technical and commercial education.
Typical challenges for companies and institutions
Global companies offer the same products to many locations around the globe, meaning that the requirements for technical personnel in deploying and maintaining these products are the same worldwide. From a local standpoint, whilst qualification profiles may sound the same, skill requirements differ. Skill levels have to be adapted to the actual requirements and aligned across the organization. How can this be achieved in an economically viable and measurable way?
In many countries, professions are learnt in purely academic training centers, meaning that the practical application of that can be lacking. At the same time, trainers frequently point to insufficient interaction with industry. Training content can become obsolete; new technologies fail to make it to the curriculum. These are typical constellations for which we develop suitable solutions.
