Apprenticeship

We consciously invest a lot in apprenticeship. Our apprentices expect modern premises, state-of-the-art equipment and, above all, one thing: time and support from experienced instructors.

The goal: to transfer our motivation and joy for our field to the apprentices. It helps that our in-house training programme quickly teaches the basics so that real projects can be successfully implemented in the shortest possible time.

Benefits

We want to develop our apprentices, like our students, into truly sought-after professionals in the market. This means that we set high standards for our training and thus demand a high level of commitment.

We reward this commitment with various benefits that also go beyond the standard:

  • Individual training plan and support
  • Professional and personal development training courses 
    (performance-based English courses, various IT trainings, business etiquette, team-building units, etc.)
  • Travel allowance
  • Free lunch in the in-house canteen
  • Trainee and company excursions
  • Representation of apprentice interests by JAV (Youth and Apprentice Representation)
  • Very good social benefits
  • Training allowance according to collective agreement

Study and apprenticeship profile

The training concept "Study & Apprenticeship Dual" enables you to study for a Bachelor's degree parallel to your apprenticeship. In the last year of your apprenticeship, you will begin your part-time studies. This initially begins in a reduced form to enable you to prepare well for the completion of your training. Once you have completed your training, the number of lectures will increase.

Duration of training
The standard duration is: 4.5 years. 
(or 9 semesters)
