Vocational college teaching post with vocational specialization in Mechanical Engineering and Production Technology

The vocational college offers the widest range of diploma types available in NRW, including those available at vocational schools, training colleges, higher vocational colleges, technical secondary schools, professional secondary schools and technical colleges. Vocational colleges combine general and professional training. The staff of the vocational college also reflects the diversity of the professional world. Specialists in social pedagogy, business administration, and commercial and technical fields work side by side at the vocational college. You will jointly develop teaching units in teams and then implement them.

Cooperations with businesses are another important part of the work you will do. Instructors support their students in choosing a career and looking for an apprenticeship or training position. The working world is changing quickly, and requires professionals to train continuously. Vocational colleges offer well-equipped laboratories, workshops and learning facilities, as well as the latest content.
