Support trainees, set a precedent: From a very early age
The teaching network in Rhein-Kreis Neuss is densely linked. Apart from the elementary needs of systematic education and training, there are diverse other forms of support: For individual educational development and for advancing professional careers.
Competition with excellence: The vocational training centres
Modern forms of vocational training and further training ensure that trainees are integrated into working life at an early age.
Outstandingly well-equipped, thanks to investments amounting to millions, the county’s vocational training centres combine the theoretical and practical training with the rich opportunities offered by the prospering economic region. In Dormagen the emphasis is appropriately on chemistry and related topics, in Neuss new IT job profiles are developed, among others, and in Grevenbroich there are first class offers, for example, in commercial and industrial trades.
Learning without borders: New forms of training and further training
The "Internationale Schule am Rhein” (ISR – International School on the Rhine) was founded in 2003, at the initiative of the county, the city of Neuss and the chamber of commerce and industry of Mid-Lower Rhine. In the first year 16 nations were already united under one roof here in Neuss. The multilingual curriculum prepares children from kindergarten age for a world in which multicultural understanding is becoming increasingly important.
The county’s own technology centre in Korschenbroich-Glehn, the Junior Management School in Kloster Knechtsteden and the Planet Life Academy in the former rocket-launching station in Hombroich culture centre in Neuss are also treading new training and further training ground.
