The technological innovations related to electromobility also affect job profiles and structures in the relevant departments of enterprises. In competitive environments, these adaptation processes often take place very fast. Therefore, further training and the continuous qualification of staff are very important. The Quality Management for Further Training on E-Mobility project is to work out an innovative approach to staff training. The aim is to compile a guide containing quality standards and framework conditions for training programmes on electromobility to ensure Germany’s long-term and sustainable position as the leading provider of electromobility.
The project foresees the joint development of modules for continuing education and formalised crediting processes by universities, universities of applied sciences, and businesses within a new quality framework of academic advanced training. It will place particular emphasis on aspects like the targeted acquisition of skills, cooperative knowledge transfer, fast availability of new insights, and easier procedures for the recognition of part-time qualification modules.
These objectives will be achieved by setting up sample modules of continuing education and by taking new approaches towards education in the field of electromobility. The resulting list of criteria for successful education components will be tested and evaluated with relevant practice-oriented modules. The continuous knowledge transfer between the project partners, i.e. academic institutions and businesses, will ensure the timely transfer of results to the fields of research and teaching. In addition, parallel social-scientific research will regularly evaluate the methods, results, and transferability of the new concepts. On top of this, a new method for cooperation between science and businesses will emerge, a prerequisite for successfully establishing a new concept for advanced training.
