Areas of further education and vocational training

First vocational education (Erstausbildung) takes place in the Berufsschule (vocational school) as supplement to in-company training. This system is called dual education system, a combination of in-company training and vocational school education.
Our college provides vocational education in the occupational fields of electrical engineering, information technology, mechanical engineering, hair and beauty, constructional engineering and wood working.

The Berufseinstiegsklasse
, BEK (vocational preparatory class) enables students to do an apprenticeship. It focuses on hair and beauty, wood and metal engineering.

Besides our 'Berufsschule'
we offer other courses of varying levels and goals:

Berufsfachschule (full-time vocational school) teaches job-oriented basic education without in-company training. Successful completion of the second year (Berufsfachschule II) gives the student a qualification called qualifizierter Sekundarabschluss I, the German equivalent to GCSE-level (UK) or High School Diploma (USA).

The next level would be the two-year 
Berufsfachschule, BFTAI. This is also a full-time vocational school. It requires the equivalent of  GCSE for admission. Students who graduate are certified technical assistants. They also have the option of obtaining a certificate, which, in connection with practical courses, gives them the Fachhochschulreife, entrance requirement for Fachhochschule (University of Applied Sciences).

Fachschule (upper school for engineering) provides further education for technicians. Entrance requirements are completed vocational training in any technical occupation followed by work experience.

Another option would be the Fachoberschule
, FOS, full-time upper vocational school for either technics or art and design requiring the equivalent of GCSE-level. After one year  students are qualified to attend the Fachhochschule (University of Applied Sciences).
