Schools and education

The Wirtschaftsregion Mittelbaden offers an extensive educational infrastructure based on actual needs: from elementary schools in the immediate vicinity to secondary schools and diversified centers for vocational training within easy reach to comprehensive training and education offers.

"The right solution for everyone" is the claim the WRM uses to describe the region's ambitious educational offerings. Educational offers in the region include all-day schools, special assistance for students, school lunch, career counseling and modern facilities and infrastructure and are characterised by a close cooperation of schools and businesses.

After graduating succesfully, students will find plenty of job opportunities both in private companies and in the service sector. Vocational schools combine general education and industry-specific skills and knowledge and offer additional opportunities for those who wish to obtain their school-leaving qualifications or simply want to continue their education. This approach provides students with a unique skillset to facilitate professional and academic success. Vocational schools are very practically-orientated, offering a high level of integration and motivation.

The key competence of vocations schools is to provide dual vocational training (in-company training combined with theory lessons at school) in the fields of

  • manufacturing/technologie
  • commerce
  • social education/nursing.

Vocational training is provided by highly-qualified experts at excellent teaching facilities. The dual system in vocational training is characterized by its close cooperation between companies and schools. Schools are always up to date with new developments, which allows them to adjust their curriculums and to exploit their opportunities in the most appropriate way. Examples for this include evening classes for further education and the possibility to gain additional qualifications even during initial vocational training, e. g.

  • by qualifying as a vocational trainer, by obtaining a diploma qualfying for university entrance, by improving language skills and industry-specific competences or
  • by combining vocational training with a Bachelor degree program or a master class.
