IMBABA SCHOOL

×

Imbaba School - new prospects for tomorrow’s automotive specialists. Improving the quality of vocational training in Egypt, so that young people gain new prospects for their future and the local industry benefits from competent professionals, has been the main goal and the starting point of the Imbaba school project.

In 2017, as a cooperation project with Ghabbour Foundation, the already existing Imbaba vocational school was fully renovated and equipped with modern technology. The SIS Middle East team completely restructured the curriculum for automotive mechatronics engineers and aligned it with the German dual vocational training system. Theoretical lessons are combined with phases of practice in GB Auto's business units. The vocational training for automotive mechatronics has a duration of 3 years and accredited by the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

Despite all the challenges, we have accomplished a sustainable progress in there with a great team of trainers and teachers, supported by German experts in the field of vocational education. The first educational specialization is Automotive Mechatronics. We started with 76 trainees, 3 classes in 2017. Now, in 2019 the school is running with a total of 230 trainees, 9 classes. Building on the success of the first SIS-ME vocational school project, further schools and training professions are planned.

We launched two new specializations following the German standards this year, Automotive Body Specialist and Automotive Paint Specialist to serve the increasing demand on these professions. The next steps in our school will be the Commercial vehicle specialization and 2 and 3 wheelers, and in 2020 we are looking forward to the first final exam with certification by AHK (German Arab Chamber of Industry & Commerce).
