Thursday, 05 November 2015
Minor e.V., a German migration research organization, and SIBIS Institut, a social research institute, are in the final stages of developing an online platform to support foreign workers in adjusting to life in Germany. The Digital Integration Assistant (DINTA) is the end-product of a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (www.bmbf.de).

Initially geared toward healthcare workers from the Philippines and Spain, DINTA offers a range of tools, including detailed guides on preparing to move to Germany and living and working in the country; fora for users to discuss various topics with their colleagues; a glossary of key terminology related to nursing; and a tool through which they can seek practical advice from mentors. The website offers content in three languages: English, German, and Spanish.

In order to make DINTA more responsive to the needs of its intended users, Minor e.V. is inviting newly arrived Filipino workers in Germany to participate in an online survey about their experiences preparing for their move to Germany. The survey may be completed at www.soscisurvey.de/dinta2 and takes around 15 minutes to complete. The survey is anonymous and Minor e.V. is assuring the public that it will keep information provided confidential. Respondents will also receive a free online app on completing the survey, as a token of thanks from Minor.

More information about the project is available at http://www.minor-kontor.de/forschung/dinta.

Berlin.  A twenty-person delegation from the Philippines recently crisscrossed Germany to get an in depth look at Germany’s dual education system and to learn which elements of the German model could be successfully incorporated into the Philippine setting. The group visited Frankfurt, Berlin, Bonn and Stuttgart from 12 to 16 October 2015.


Tobias Bolle, Project Director of Dual Training at the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GPCCI), helped organize the Philippine delegation with representatives from the Department of Education, TESDA, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) and its local chapters as well as private PHL companies such as TÜV Rheinland Philippines, BAG Electronics and CS Garments Inc..


The study tour was part of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) funded K-12 Plus Project, which is creating pilot models for the vocational education and training track at PHL senior high school levels.  


Tobias emphasized that “strong cooperation among private companies, schools and chambers is essential in the dual training system in Germany; this is precisely what we want to recreate in the Philippines - through the K-12 Project. The site visits enabled the delegates to learn more and to get a deeper understanding of how this system works and how it can be translated and implemented in their country through their respective institutions.”
