Support for self-support.
ATMI Cikarang - The starting point
After thorough evaluation, Indonesia was chosen by SITECO in 2008 as site for a pilot project. In Cikarang, the industrial region of Jakarta, a Technical Education Center is being established and enlarged for prospective polymechanics, mechatronics.
RISTEKDIKTI - The teacher training
SITECO organised an advanced education program on behalf of the Ministry for Research, Technology and Higher Education RISTEKDIKTI in 2017 for a total of 30 Indonesian vocational teachers. For one group of aircraft technicians, this training took place in Switzerland at SR Technics at Zurich Airport, in combination with zbw Center for Vocational Higher Education, St. Gallen.
S4C - The schools
SECO signed a Letter of Intent with the Indonesian Ministry of Industry in February 2017 aiming at a more intense cooperation in the field of vocational training. As a direct result, a consortium comprising Swisscontact, the Bern University of Applied Science and SITECO worked out the concept S4C Skills for Competitiveness for the build-up of 5 new Polytechnics in industrial development areas in Indonesia.
