This is how the vovational training at SCHUMANN works:

Your start

All beginnings are hard? Not with us! Profound tutorials give you the opportunity to get to know everything and learn what is particularly important at the beginning.

Introduction to customer projects

Time to get started: You work your way into a client project and take on individual tasks. Of course, you will always be accompanied by an experienced team colleague!

Participation in the KnowIT Göttingen

You like to talk about what you do? Then you may do so - on the stage of KnowIT! This is an annual trade fair for apprentices by apprentices. We have been taking part for many years!

Mid-term exam

Half-time - your intermediate exam is coming up. Of course we offer support in preparing and learning!

Work independently in projects

Actually, you're almost a pro - and that's exactly why you're now allowed to work independently in our project teams. But don't panic, we won't leave you on your own: a mentor is always there to support you!

Final project and exam

The goal is approaching: In the final project, you apply the knowledge you have acquired to solve a problem of your own choice in practice. The theoretical knowledge is then tested in the written final examination at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

Our goal is to find a job together where you can develop to your full potential.


What our vocational trainees say about their training at SCHUMANN

Youssef Daher

Youssef Daher, 1st year of apprenticeship

"The first months of my training were very exciting. I got to know new colleagues and learned a lot from my trainer. Due to Corona, personal meetings were no longer possible, but thanks to the quick adaptation to the situation at SCHUMANN, I integrated well into my team despite the restrictions.

A highlight of my training so far was my specialisation project, in which I was allowed to develop a web interface that facilitates the work of my colleagues. Currently, I am working in the team to improve our CAM software. We exchange information daily about the current status and upcoming tasks. Then I work independently on the tasks assigned to me. In the varied daily routine, I always learn something new.

I'm looking forward to starting the hardware project with the other apprentices of my year soon."

Valeska Marz

Valeska Marz, 2nd year of apprenticeship

"I have always enjoyed languages and wanted to delve deeper into the field of programming languages after my studies. At SCHUMANN, I particularly like the good working atmosphere and the varied work. We work closely together as a team and through pair programming and code reviews I learn an incredible amount from and with my colleagues.

In the second year of training, we were allowed to present our hardware project at the SCHUMANN Conference in front of many international guests. It was a fantastic experience to be able to represent the company at such a big event. I was also able to participate as a speaker at KnowIT in autumn.

I think it's great to be offered all these opportunities to develop personally."
