Usually, there is a deadline for application to the training and study courses. The exact date can vary from course to course – but you can find it in the job posting in question. After the deadline we will start selecting candidates. In most cases, for training and study programmes, there will be an assessment centre day followed by a second round of personal interview.

The applicant interview will serve to let us get to know each other. That is why, as a rule, we start with introductions and then ask questions later, in order to get to know you better and find out what you consider important. In addition, we will give you a good view of the world of Bertrandt and explain everything of importance regarding apprenticeships and work-study programmes at Bertrandt.

An apprenticeship can take between two and three-and-a-half years, depending on the course and school qualifications. A work-study programme lasts six semesters, i.e. three years.

Apprenticeships start from the 1 August or 1 September (depending on courses of training). Work-study programmes start on 1 October.

This can be for various reasons: The application deadline could have run out or the training/course of study may not be on offer for the academic year in question. It could also be the case that it is simply too early to apply.

The best thing to do is to contact us via email or telephone (07034/656-4222) – we will be happy to advise you.
