Visitors from Columbia: Eckert Schulen welcome Delegation from Universidad del Sinú to the Campus in Regenstauf
In December 2022, representatives of the Universidad del Sinú (Cartagena, Colombia) and Ursula Brendecke (Deputy Director of the Bavarian Representative Office for South America) visited the Eckert Schulen.
Thanks to the wide range of training and continuing educational programs, the Eckert Schulen are not only one of the largest private schools in Germany, but also have made a name for themselves internationally. The "Eckert Schools International" offer customized programs and support international schools in introducing the German dual vocational training system. In December 2022, representatives of the Universidad del Sinú (Cartagena, Colombia) and Ursula Brendecke (Deputy Director of the Bavarian Representative Office for South America) visited the Regenstauf campus.
In December 2022, five representatives of the Universidad del Sinú visited the campus in Regenstauf. Ursula Brendecke accompanied them. The delegation was welcomed by Markus Johannes Zimmermann (Managing Director and Headmaster of the Dr. Robert Eckert Academy) and Mr. Gerald Saule (Head of Vocational Training International), who gave the international guests an introduction to the educational concepts and goals of the Eckert Schulen. After a small round of discussions and a tour around the campus, both groups presented their individual concepts. Afterwards, future projects were discussed.
"This trip will give us a better understanding of the German dual education system. Thanks to our visit to the Eckert Schulen the Universidad del Senú in Cartagena receives important advice and support in introducing a similiar system in Columbia" exmplains Ursula Brendecke. The „Eckert Schools International“ will happily and actively support the Universidad del Sinú on this path. Further cooperation in the field of quality, environmental management and school management systems based on the German model are already in the planning.back
