About Dual Vocational Training (DVT)

Entering the workforce in Germany doesn’t only mean you have to pursue the conventional pathway of graduating from a university.

The Dual Vocational Training (DVT) program is an apprenticeship program that allows you to decide the type of jobs you are interested in beforehand so that you can get on-the-job training with an organization from the start.

On-the-job training at a company

You’ll be working at a German organization three to four days a week. Here, you’ll learn industry-specific technical skills, solve real-life industry problems, and develop soft skills needed to thrive in your careers.

Classroom study at a vocational school

For one or two days weekly, you’ll attend classes at a vocational school. You’ll learn theoretical knowledge needed in your relevant job roles which you can quickly put to practice at work.

Why DVT?

Dual Vocational Training prepares students to be career ready

Promising Job Prospects

It is a dynamic and ever-changing industry that is applied in both large-scale productions as well as to make improvements in everyday things that you are already using – your phone, car brakes, and so much more.

As a mechatronics technician, you will be responsible to:

  • Install and test hardware and software components in the technical area.
  • Set up and test electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic controls.
  • Program, operate and maintain mechatronic systems.

  • Comply to accident prevention regulations.
  • Install and connect mechanical components and equipment.
  • Analyse electrical systems and check functions.

IT isn’t just a 90s buzzword anymore – it is our present, and will be our future. Today, there is an increasing need for IT specialists in various industries to cope with changing demands.

IT specialists design and implement complex computer systems and adapt them to individual user.

DVT-N (Nursing)

With Germany’s aging population, the demand for medical care professionals, particularly nurses, is growing. This is why many hospitals, nursing homes, and other care providers are turning to recruit overseas talents to help fill the gap.

In this pathway, you’ll spend 3 years in training, where you learn and practice general nursing in the first 2 years, and have the option to continue training to be a general nurse, or specialize in geriatrics or pediatrics in their final year.
