Vocational professions in Germany are run according to the dual system with practical training performed on the job and theoretical training being carried out in parallel at vocational schools.
Admission to a vocational school, therefore, is dependent on you having a successful job interview and being awarded a traineeship. No job – no training.
The career pathway gives you important training sessions in application strategies, CV writing and letters of motivation, interviewing techniques. In addition to that, we organise the job offers and interviews. At the end, you are responsible for your own success.
Remember nobody can do your work for you.
You must be motivated and focused to move ahead in life.
To help you will need to answer the following questions:
- What makes me unique in a way that I can be of added value to an employer?
- What challenges in my potential employer facing and how can I help to overcome these?
- What talents can I develop to make the transition from pupil to trainee?
Once these 3 questions have been answered we discuss and finalise the pathway solutions most suitable for your career goals.
To qualify for work in Germany, you will need a B1/B2 level to get started with basics such as job interviews, work permit, visa applications etc. To actually work as a professional, the required level will be B2/C1 or higher depending on your profession.
In most professions, it is not enough just to be able to speak at a conversational level.
You will need to be able to read and write reports for your superiors and colleagues as well as take instructions under stress without losing time or making mistakes. In medical professions, accurate information might make the difference when fighting to save lives.
Finally, medical or technical terminology will be integrated into your course to make sure that you are 100% ready for the training programme when it begins.
