Morocco: Exchange between Moroccan and German technical vocational schools

A group of trainees from the vocational school BS1 in Kempten visited from 7 to 21 May 2022 their partner school in Kénitra, Morocco, together with their teachers. This exchange was realised within the scope of the sequa vocational training project (2016-2022). The project executing agency is bfz International.

For a fortnight, the German trainees from the fields of metal and electrical engineering were able to experience the vocational school and the culture in Morocco. During this time, they worked together with the Moroccan trainees on a joint project: the planning and construction of a solar-powered sign, which will now permanently document and publicise the partnership between the two schools. Besides the project work, the group from Germany also had the opportunity to get to know the country, the people and the culture of Morocco. Among other things, there was a tajine cooking course and excursions to Rabat and Fez. 

On 19 May, a festive closing event took place to inaugurate the finished project work, which was also attended by representatives of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. This is the first time that such an exchange has taken place between the CPT and a German professional training centre.

This project was initiated and supported by bfz International. Additional financial support to prepare and cover the travel costs of the students and teachers was provided by the ENSA programme, which, like the vocational training partnership project, is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
