In 2023, the motto for us and our partners in the respective projects was: “Hands on!”
Our Vocational Education and Training Partnership (BBP) with AMER and the IICM in Mozambique entered its second phase, while the BBP with Motheo TVET College in South Africa was launched. The year 2024 will now be all about implementing the activities laid out in 2023.
Back in November, Frank Dorstel, master car mechanic and service manager at Autohaus Berkemeier, was on an expert mission to our partner institute IICM in Maputo, Mozambique. Among other things, a concept for the advanced training of vocational school teachers was developed. A workshop check-up was also carried out, in which the workshop organisation and equipment were analysed and suggestions for improvement were developed.
Our TVET partner in South Africa, Motheo TVET College in Bloemfontein, will primarily focus on networking with the private sector under the IRESA umbrella in this year. Expert workshops on site are also scheduled to be held.
Frank Tischner and Jörg Kersten conducted a successful marketing workshop in Jordan with their expert mission at the Aqaba National Vocational Training Hub (ANVT). Further specialist workshops are planned for 2024.
We look forward to a productive 2024 and successful projects with our partners and colleagues!

GIZ / BMZ Mozambique Visit KH

Last Friday, 10 November, BMZ Regional Manager for Mozambique, Mark Holzberger, and GIZ Regional Director for Mozambique, Ekkehard Lang, visited our project in Mozambique. During a tour around KH’s partner school IICM (Instituto Industrial e Comercial da Matola), both learned about the progress of the cooperation between KH and its partners.

Our local representatives, Jan Rogge and Vasco Cuna, joined by Nilza Almeida (Deputy Director of the IICM) gave the guests a tour of the workshops. KH organises practical training courses for teachers in the field of welding, which have become well-known throughout the country.

Mr. Holzberger and Mr. Lang were very impressed by the cooperation between the KH and the IICM.
