President Park visits Chunil Engineering vocational school to promote dual education system

By Song Sang-ho

SEOUL, Aug. 18 (Yonhap) — President Park Geun-hye on Thursday visited a vocational school and a company in the western port city of Incheon to promote a dual education system, a key element of a broader program to address youth unemployment and nurture young talent.

The system combines apprenticeships in a company and education at a vocational school. Under it, students take classes at their school for three days a week and receive the standard quantity of training at a designated company for two days.

The chief executive met with students at the Incheon Mechanical Technical High School and those being trained at Chunil Engineering Co. to offer her encouragement and evaluate whether the dual system has been running properly.

It is the latest in a recent series of her on-site tours aimed at promoting government policies to enhance the well-being of citizens.

A large number of students at college- or university-level institutions have also been participating in the system, which the government has been pushing to introduce to South Korea since September 2013. The system has been crafted based on a set of models that Germany and Switzerland have been successfully practicing, Seoul officials said.

Currently, some 7,700 local companies run apprenticeship programs under the dual system, which some 21,000 students have joined.
