A warm welcome

The task of the In­sti­tu­te of Vo­ca­tio­nal Edu­ca­ti­on (IBB) is to scientifically investigate issues in the fields of work, professions, vocational education and lifelong professional learning in the light of social transformation processes.

The members of the IBB focus on vocational education – ranging from career orientation to vocational preparation and job training and even ongoing occupational training and business ­start-ups.

Teachers are ­trained in the specialist vocational fields of business, metal and electrical engineering and health at the Institute so that they are equipped to work in schools and in the education sector outside schools. The IBB also qualifies teachers to  prepare pupils for employment at general education schools and communicates skills for personnel development at companies as well as for entrepreneurial thinking and actions.
