In addition to the current challenges in production technology due to the shift from conventional powertrains towards electrified drive technologies, the disruptive transformation of mobility confronts OEMs and suppliers with major personnel challenges, which include new requirement profiles for prospective skilled workers. In order to meet the personnel requirements of industry and ensure the high quality of vocational training in Germany nonetheless, the current training concepts must be

This paper presents a methodological approach for deriving current deficits in vocational education and training through the systematic analysis of framework curricula and the targeted survey of teachers working at German vocational schools as well as the derived training program to support the qualification of trainees. In order to obtain a training concept of high didactic quality, the approach is based on pedagogical methods to provide the best possible support and to convey the learning objectives related to professional, social, methodical, and personal skills. With the newly conceived "Training Factory Stator Production" at the wbk Institute of Production Science of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, a program for the training and further education of trainees, skilled employees and engineers will be introduced using the example of producing stators with hairpin technology, to support especially small and medium-sized companies in the personnel transformation process. Abstract In addition to the current challenges in production technology due to the shift from conventional powertrains towards electrified drive technologies, the disruptive transformation of mobility confronts OEMs and suppliers with major personnel challenges, which include new requirement profiles for prospective skilled workers. In order to meet the personnel requirements of industry and ensure the high quality of vocational training in Germany nonetheless, the current training concepts must be strengthened by the targeted integration of specific contents and be geared holistically to the needs of new occupational profiles.
