About the DVWO

German Organization of Associations for Lifelong Learning

Since 2011, BAMIK has been certified as an educational institution in line with the strict requirements of the DVWO (German Organization of Associations for Lifelong Learning). This ensures that we provide customers with the highest quality services and that all alumni of our train-the-trainer courses work to the highest standards.

The DVWO was founded in 2002 to represent the professional interests of Germany’s continuing training providers. It unifies about 80 per cent of Germany's organized adult educators and currently has more than 13,000 members. It comprises organizations with various focuses on content and methodology. All share a commitment to the quality and integrity of further education services and continuing training work.

The aims of the DVWO are to improve the quality of teaching and learning in continuing vocational training, increase transparency for consumers, and develop clear agreed quality criteria for training providers. To achieve this, the DVWO has set up an important quality commission and is engaged in various quality management projects.

The DVWO quality seal

The “DVWO Quality Seal” represents consensus on the competence re¬quire¬ments for educational service providers and for training and further education facilities. It was developed in the DVWO Quality Commission in cooperation with all member associations of the DVWO.

The DVWO awards its quality seal to providers of further education who work in line with the DVWO’s quality model. BAMIK was awarded this quality seal for its quality management in 2011 and 2017.

DVWO's European focus

DVWO members promote the development of vocational training in line with the European Commission's educational policy goals: to improve employability combined with promoting personal responsibility, develop entrepreneurship, promote companies' and their employees' adaptability, and promote equal opportunities for women and men.

DVWO quality management in BAMIK training

DVWO quality standards are based on the quality management principles of DIN ISO 9001:2015. BAMIK applies these standards through the entirety of its own training process, including the need analysis, training conception, training session, and transfer and evaluation. Training is developed and conducted in close collaboration with the client to ensure that the specific training need is identified and met.

DVWO certification

BAMIK’s train-the-trainer courses enable our course participants to gain DVWO certification through a standard examination procedure, which assesses their knowledge of DVWO quality management systems, curriculum development and practical training skills Once participants have completed the course, they are then eligible for certification. DVWO certification is a valuable way to distinguish yourself in an increasingly competitive training market. DVWO-certified trainers demonstrate their ability to create and deliver sustainable training programs that meet participants' needs. Certification is therefore a vital step in one's career as trainer. For more information on these requirements, please visit the respective train-the-trainer course pages here.
