Learn more about the possibilities of apprenticeship

Apprenticeship offers a flexible path to study for a profession. It is also a practical way to develop one’s own or the work community’s professional skills. Apprenticeship is suitable for everyone, regardless of their background or age, and can be started flexibly throughout the year.

Profession through apprenticeship

Through an apprenticeship, you can complete any vocational qualification or unit through on-the-job learning. An apprenticeship is a suitable form of study if you have a suitable job for the qualification you are studying.

At the same time, you gain work experience and professional networks and develop your professional skills. You will receive a salary for work done and a certificate of your competence.

The studies completed at the educational institute support the work tasks and the acquired skills can be applied immediately to practice, so the studies are diverse and work-oriented.

Apprenticeship agreements are also suitable for short periods of work, such as summer jobs, in addition to completing an entire qualification.
