The aim of the project is to generate knowledge about the state of vocational education and training and the future qualification needs in the mining sector in Chile with regard to the development of skills and qualifications in the area of sustainability and Industry 4.0. The study will serve as the basis for German institutions, in particular training and further education providers, to promote cooperation with Chilean institutions and companies and to facilitate market entry in Chile.

As part of the project the country frameworks of education systems and mining sector will be examined in order to identify the scope and content of the needs of businesses, education providers and workers, the possibilities for cooperation in this area and possible limitations.

In addition, the project will raise awareness of Chilean companies on the need to develop skills and qualifications to better implement sustainability measures in the mining value chain. It is assumed that educational providers in Chile will benefit from the project findings as their skills and qualifications training programs will be enriched and honed for further challenges with the expertise of German education providers.
