Work placements for technical school students

Work placements for technical school students

General information:

Technical schools are places that build on general school leaving qualifications to provide subject-specific theoretical and practical knowledge and skills and lead to a higher education entry qualification.
In year 11 at a technical school, pupils not only receive lessons but also participate in a 46-week (52 weeks minus six weeks’ holiday) work placement in companies or equivalent work placement institutions. The work placement and subject-specific teaching must be related. This work placement is a constituent part of year 11 and the technical school monitors its contents and implementation.

Aim of the work placement:
The work placement enables a better grasp and understanding of theoretical topics. The interlinking of theory and practice should:

  • provide specific ideas and practical knowledge and skills as a basis for classroom-based lessons
  • act as an orientation aid for finding a job
  • facilitate the first contact with the world of work, its social milieu and the problems that can arise there

The intention is that in addition to professional qualifications, students should learn soft skills (e.g. teamwork, flexibility, independent working, reliability, etc.).

Areas of work:
Hager Group Germany offers work placements for technical school students in the areas of business and technology (metalworking and electrical engineering).
The work placement applicants undergo a site-specific selection process.
