Vocational training and ‘dual’ training/degree programmes at Klasmann-Deilmann
So you’ve almost finished school and want to do a recognised vocational training programme? Well, then: welcome to Klasmann-Deilmann! Whatever your educational background – here, everyone can develop their talents. Klasmann-Deilmann offers many opportunities to train for a specific occupation. If you’re a savvy go-getter, then a technical/industrial role is probably right for you. If you have strong organisational skills and are a natural communicator, then you should probably opt for a commercial/administrative career. And if you have a more academic line of work in mind, you can combine theory and practice in a ‘dual’ course of studies at Klasmann-Deilmann.
As an administrator, your job is to keep everything running smoothly. This means you need good organisational and teamwork skills. You’ll learn everything else during your training programme, with the practical component here in the workplace and the more theoretical part of the course at vocational school.
Those who opt for a technical/industrial career with us often have to deal with heavy equipment and large machinery. Yes, you need to be a very hands-on person. But you also need to be intelligent and clued in about how things work and how to fix them. You’ll acquire the necessary know-how during a ‘dual’ training programme, i.e. in the workplace at Klasmann-Deilmann and at vocational school.
One option at Klasmann-Deilmann is a combined vocational training und degree programme in which you regularly alternate between the training workplace and a higher-education centre. This enables you to combine theory and practice, put your experience to use from an early stage, and consolidate it in day-to-day work. Another big advantage: you can do your Bachelor’s thesis with us in the sixth semester.

Our suggestions for your application: things to bear in mind
To get a full picture of who you are, we need more than a photo. So before you submit your application, first make sure you haven’t forgotten anything important.
We’ll be delighted to get your application. Even more so if you tell us why you have this particular career in mind. Why is this occupation a good fit for you? Meaning: why is it right for you, and why are you right for it?
Your CV can be very revealing. It can tell us what the milestones have been in your life so far, and what your interests and preferences are. A personal data sheet is sufficient.
What do you prefer – maths, or maybe the sciences such as biology and chemistry? Or are you more practically inclined? Your school reports reveal where your greatest strengths and talents lie. But another thing is equally clear: your school grades don’t remotely tell the whole story.
While school reports are important to us, they’re not everything. To get a fuller idea of who you are, we’d like to know more. What are you especially interested in? What are your favourite hobbies and pastimes? Have you got any particular talents or done work experience? Are you learning any languages? Or are you involved on a voluntary basis in a club or society? Send us any certificates or the like – everything that interests you interests us!
