In the DRAGON project, partners are developing a prototype training and development system for production management and other production-oriented topics. This will offer a range of tiered and certified programs addressing a variety of topic areas.
The focus of this system, which is open to other training service providers, is on embedding skills development in a work context In keeping with this approach, the topics of production management and production technology are designed to be practical and immediately applicable.
The skills training offered is geared specifically to the particular needs of Chinese customers. Learners can receive training either face to face or via an internet platform – with the flexibility to meet individual needs. After the funded phase, the project partners intend to work with additional partners to operate the training and development system on a for–profit basis. The project aims to generate the knowledge required to assure systematic readiness and quality of training services targeted at the Chinese market.
