Less than a year into its partnership with Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture and the Technical and Vocational Training Organization, Germany’s Stiftung Bildung and Handwerk (SBH, or Education and Craft Foundation) seems to have made considerable headway in conducting its trademark project in Iran.
On March 3, 2018, as one of the largest and most efficient educational networks in Germany, SBH signed a memorandum of understanding with ICCIMA and TVTO (state-run organization in charge of technical and vocational training affiliated to the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare) to introduce the "Dual Vocational Education and Training Program" in Iran over three years.  
"Dual VET would help bridge the skills gap in the economy, given the fact that lack of qualified, skilled workers is one of the main challenges facing Iran’s private sector today," Abazar Barari, a representative of ICCIMA, told a press briefing on the project's progress on Monday.
