The Aliko Dangote Foundation-VDMA partnership involves the collaboration between the Aliko Dangote Foundation, the VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) and its Foundation for Young Talent in Mechanical Engineering (Nachwuchsstiftung Maschinenbau gGmbH – NWS).

• Full Trade Vocational Training Mechanical Programme

It consists of:

– seven short courses for advanced training which last between 2 and 4 weeks. and

– a 30-months professional, dual full trade vocational training course
