The dual learning programme is the primary focus of the GFG Foundation in Romania.
The dual learning programme takes place at the Paul Dimo Vocational School in Galati, with 21 students in the ninth grade combining a mixture of vocational and technical training, merging theoretical knowledge taught by teachers with practical activities carried out by LIBERTY Galati mentors. Students will have the opportunity to work alongside experts to develop their technical skills. As well as embarking on fun activities to develop their life skills, such as teamwork, communication, and confidence building.
The Foundation’s aim is to give students some important skills to help them towards being job-ready after school. These learning programmes are designed to involve students in problem solving real-world issues that are happening in their local communities, helping to close the emerging skills gap, particularly in science and engineering. Throughout the programme there is a strong focus on building self-esteem, so that students develop a confidence in using their own voice, expressing their points of view, so they are better able to navigate an adult world after school.
The launch of the programme took place in the presence of Her Majesty Margareta, Custodian of the Crown of Romania, His Royal Highness Prince Radu of Romania, Her Royal Highness Princess Sophie of Romania and other representatives of the Romanian Royal Household during their visit to LIBERTY Galati.
