Apprenticeship training is a flexible and practical form of education where the student and the employer together make a contract of employment and training. The student must find the apprenticeship job him/herself.
Apprenticeship training will be suitable for you if
- you lack vocational training
- your duties at work have extended
- you want a new occupation
- you want to develop your expertise and know-how
Learning takes place mainly at the workplace with practical tasks, which is supplemented by studies at the institute.
In the national core curriculum the schools and education institutions are encouraged to co-operate actively with companies and communities as a part of schoolwork and studying. The aim is to use multiform learning environments to increase know-how.
The management of the schools and education institutions as well as the teaching and education personnel need to be aware of the statutes concerning marketing and sponsorship when they are representing their school or education institution in corporate or community co-operation.
Organizations, communities, companies and private persons can rent school facilities outside teaching hours (mostly weekday evenings and weekends).
The costs for renting school facilities can be found on the application form. The principal of the school may also allow the use of school facilities for free or for 20% discount if the criteria mentioned on the application form are met. The renter must also pay for a supervisor if the principal demands that a supervisor needs to be present.
