Multi-model A-level training

You have studied successfully at a gymnasium or a technical school, but prefer vocational training to undergraduate study? Then perhaps the multi-model of the Saarland trade scheme with additional qualifications is the appropriate professional entry. Over a period of two years you will be taught – in addition to the normal vocational training under the dual system – subjects such as business administration, trade management, IT and optionally English or French.
