Vocational Education

Shaping the next generation

It is important for the sustainable growth of the railway sector to identify and promote young talent at an early stage. Vocational Education is a comprehensive long-term program for a sustainable competence development and that has a long tradition in Germany. It links school education with in-company development. As such, Deutsche Bahn invests heavily in its vocational education and combines theoretical courses, practical and on-the-job trainings to ensure that all newcomers are perfectly qualified for the transportation sector.

We support you with the introduction of Vocational Education in your organization by offering advice from the development of the concept to its final introduction.
