Start your apprenticeship in Germany

Your Apprenticeship
There is a really cool way to learn your profession in Germany: the dual training system. Here you combine practice with theory, which means that you don't just sit in school, but also really get stuck in. This apprenticeship usually lasts between two and three and a half years and is divided into school days and working days at the company. A few days a week you will be at vocational school, where you will be taught the basics. On the other days, you will work directly in the company, putting what you have learned into practice and gaining a real insight into the world of work.

This combination of theory and practice prepares you perfectly for working life, because you not only get the necessary knowledge, but also learn how to apply it directly. With over 300 recognized apprenticeships in Germany, you're sure to find something you enjoy and that suits your strengths. Make-Your-Move will be happy to advise you on which apprenticeship suits you best.

The dual training system is very popular with young people in Germany because it offers great opportunities for a job after training. Almost two thirds choose this path. If you would also like to do an apprenticeship in Germany, you should find out what requirements you need to fulfill. Make-Your-Move will help you! The dual system is not only a top apprenticeship, but can also be the starting signal for your career in Germany.
