We also promote the acquisition of skills in other areas, such as communication with customers and other participating companies or professional knowledge management, with flat hierarchies and in a friendly, pleasant atmosphere.

Specialisation in apprenticeships

Apprentices in our department can specialise in systems integration, application development and data & process analysis:


System Integration

As an IT specialist for system integration (m/f/x), you enable the operation of IT such as servers, network components or individual computers. To this end, you network hardware and software components and install complex systems. This also involves providing assistance to users and decision makers in shopping or using IT, for example.

Application Development

As an application development specialist (m/f/x) you plan and develop software and software projects for clients. In addition to new developments, further developments are key, and you will therefore learn how to analyse existing IT systems and plan new ones. You will also train the users.

Data and Process Analysis

In data and process analysis, you develop database-based solutions for digital production and business processes. To do this, you need to analyse these existing work processes beforehand, select the necessary tools, identify the data sources and ensure that data security and data protection are also observed within the new solutions. You are the bridge between application developers and system integrators, given the increasing volume of complex, rich data that requires special handling.
