Retraining initiative

The retraining initiative, provided of the MEM industries, builds a bridge for a sustainable transition to a new career field. The educational model is focused on adults who already have a vocational qualification and are looking to retrain.

The retraining initiative takes into account the job experience and knowledge of experienced professionals and is designed for adults.

It uses modern learning methods which allow it to take account of the individual situations of the students. Because it recognizes skills already acquired, the system allows for training time to be shortened.

A skills assessment and complementary aptitude testing help to individually define the student's future training pathway.
