Dualtech is a private vocational school project established in 1982 that pioneered in adapting the German Dual Training System in the Philippines. The center trains over a thousand scholars from the poor sectors of the society each year and partners with over a hundred companies in training them for eventual employment. The Dualtech Center pioneered the Dual Training System (DTS) in the country. The center adapted the German model that trains students in real life-work experience.
Dualtech trains high school graduates to be employed by partner companies, industrial workers sent to upgrade skills, and supervisors and engineers to further hone training and mentoring skills with emphasis on work values. The Dualtech Center has more than 140 partner companies where the students are deployed for their on-the-job training (OJT). Partnership covers various industries in manufacturing and servicing.
The training plan is jointly developed by the Dualtech and partner companies. The course shall run for 24 months. The first 6 months shall be spent in school, while the next 18 months involves a weekly 1 day in school and 5 days in factory.
Many of the over 11,000 graduates have become shop floor leaders in various sectors of the industry from fabrication to manufacturing, to metals, to packaging, to electronics and semiconductors, to printing, to aviation maintenance, to automotive, to information technology, to food equipment, plus more.
With Dualtech Training Center, you can play the role of a Scholar, a Partner, a Sponsor, a Volunteer or simply a part of their alumni group. The Dualtech Center’s scholarship program aims to train scholars for employment. Scholars are accepted based on their desire to find jobs after the scholarship. In this context, “study” is synonymous with “work”. Hence, to work is to study, and vice-versa, right from the first day of training.

Dualtech parners with over 100 manufacturing and service companies, more than 300 high schools that refer high school graduates, and friends and foundations who provide help.
The parents/guardians share only a part of the cost. Thus, students can be rightly called “scholars”, because a greater part of the training cost is advanced by Dualtech Center and later partly sponsored or subsidized by partner-companies. Moreover, scholars receive monthly allowance during in-plant training.
You can help Dualtech Center as a volunteer. You can be a mentor, share a skill and campaign with them. Professionals who wish to help young people and who are gainfully employed with time to spare are invited to the volunteer program.
