A memorandum of cooperation was signed between the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Office in Ukraine and the Scientific and Methodological Center for Tertiary and Vocational Education. The parties are to work together and coordinate their efforts devoted to the introduction of the dual form of education in Ukraine.
The concept of dual studies (“Duales Studium”) refers to the very specific approach, which foresees the combination of studies in a higher educational establishment and a company. In order to assist the education reform in Ukraine and its economic development, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Office in Ukraine launched a project aimed at importing and adapting dual studies to the national context back in 2013. As a result, the normative basis was elaborated, including adoption of the Concept of Dual Education\Studies and amendments to the Laws “On Education” and “On Higher Education”. All that created background for the launch of the national level experiment by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine in 2019 (MES Order #1296). The experiment is expected to last till 2023 and is widely supported by the FES-Ukraine and its partners.
