Business Training (VT) is a 2-year scheme for young people looking to gain qualifications for entry into the job market. Developed in Germany and based on the German "Dual System", the students divide their work into practical training within a company (3.5 days per week) and attending theoretical classes (1.5 days per week). The theoretical classes are taught by specifically trained teachers at the German Swiss International School (GSIS) Hong Kong.
It this "Dual System": the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (GIC) and the schoolwork together in close cooperation with the training companies. They jointly discuss and decide on the curriculum. The chamber conducts the whole traineeship and the final examination as well.
The basic curriculum for the traineeship - the "KMK-Rahmenlehrplan" - is issued in Germany and each Bundesland decides independently on its own "Lehrplan".
