What is dual learning?
You combine the best of 2 worlds: learning at school and learning in the workplace. You spend 3 days on the work floor.
You will learn general subjects and the theoretical and practical knowledge of your study at school.
You develop practical knowledge and relevant work experience in a real company.

You obtain your diploma in secondary education and you are immediately a big step ahead of your peers!
