Training and Further Training in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The Federal Republic of Germany uses its development aid policy to support the growth of manpower resources in developing countries by means of a broad spectrum of training and further training programs of foreign specialists. In planning these programs and arranging scholarships, Germany tries to orient itself toward the educational policy planning, objectives, and requirements of the developing countries. Special attention is given to ensuring applicability and transferability of training to the conditions in the countries of origin. State and nonstate institutions offer training in major areas of activity of German development aid policy: agriculture; industry and trades; administrative vocations; transport; public health; education; communications technology, postal services, and telecommunications; media; tourism; economic and social statistics; water economy; building and construction; and environmental protection. As part of both development aid policy and external cultural policy in Germany, scientific cooperation with Third World countries is a major priority. Study opportunities for developing countries at German universities and colleges are provided in social and economic sciences, agricultural sciences, technology, medicine, municipal and regional planning, and human sciences. Problems confronting the training and further training of foreigners concern language, integration, and return home and re-integration. (Institutions involved in training of foreigners are listed.)
