Types of organisation:Companies and business organisations

Our main objective is to promote vocational education and sustainably improve the quality of our apprenticeships by developing cooperation with professional schools and sharing our knowledge and experience with pupils, parents and teachers. Through our actions we endeavour to increase the number of partner schools and open new Patronage Classes. Moreover our objective is to promote key professions and show that gaining a professional qualification is a guarantee for stable employment. We want to convince not only pupils but mainly parents who have a great influence on their children's career path.
