Our apprenticeship: Framework conditions & benefits

Framework conditions for the apprenticeship and degree course

The best support, payment and benefits – what makes starting a career at Volkswagen Group Services GmbH so special?

Your own workspace and excellent facilities

Each of our apprenticeships and students has access to their own fully equipped workspace in the training stations. This includes a height-adjustable desk, an ergonomic desk chair, your own laptop computer, a monitor, mouse and keyboard, and a telephone or mobile telephone. You will have your own personal laptop computer for the duration of the apprenticeship. It will assist you with your daily tasks and studies at the vocational school or university.

Wide range of learning opportunities

We offer services in all divisions of the Volkswagen Group – which is exactly where you learn during your placement.

As an apprentice, you will change departments every three to six months, allowing you to acquire many exciting experiences and contacts by the end of your apprenticeship.

As a dual student, you will be deployed in different teams during the lecture-free period.

Special projects

Work at memorial sites

The memorial work project also takes place during the second apprenticeship year or in the third semester. In cooperation with all Volkswagen subsidiaries and the International Auschwitz Committee, young people are sent to Oswiecim to learn and remember the history of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The Volkswagen Group promotes awareness of these harrowing historical events and creates a framework for youth to confront them in depth and achieve personal growth beyond the overwhelming emotions that arise.

 

Seitenwechsel – Changing Sides

Have you ever imagined what day-to-day life is like for a person with a mental or physical disability? The ‘Changing Sides’ project gives apprentices and students the opportunity to experience this situation up close for a week. We cooperate with Lebenshilfe to organise placements in their vocational training area and their workshop. A personal learning process is initiated through the on-site work and the proximity to these special people. Once the week is over, you will start to appreciate the things that everyone takes for granted nowadays.

Internship abroad

In the second apprenticeship year or in the third semester, you will have the chance to apply for the Erasmus+ programme. You will be given the opportunity to implement a project at our European site abroad over a two-month period. We will of course cover all costs and assist you on site.

The goal of this project is for our apprentices and students to develop their intercultural competencies and project management skills.

“Dual Studies” – a work-study programme with us

Dual studies at Volkswagen Group Services means engaging in on-the-job training as part of your studies.

It allows you to reinforce your theoretical learning through regular work experience in the company. Instead of apprenticing while attending classes, you can go straight to all kinds of departments during your lecture-free periods.

The duration of the programme is from three and a half to four years.
