Help design your YIP programme

Thanks to our modular structure, you have the opportunity to design your YIP programme according to your interests. The programme consists of compulsory and optional modules. And both leave plenty of room for fun. What we class as compulsory modules include, for example, those where you take part in the kick-off event attended by all YIPs and trainees or where you impress customers with your communication skills in the context of your work and apprenticeship situation. You can also express yourself creatively, for example by getting involved in social media projects. Or you can use your organizational skills to stage an event. We offer a wide range of courses because we recognize the importance of enabling you to help design your apprenticeship individually according to your personal interests and strengths.
