Completed 27 training contracts

With 27 completed training contracts, Tyrol exceeds the Austrian average. Most of the students come from the Innsbruck area and are employed by the Innsbruck social services. Dual training guarantees practical training, which familiarizes students with the needs of everyday working life at an early stage.

Since 15 years

Nursing apprenticeships make it possible to enter the nursing profession directly after completing compulsory schooling. The training is aimed at those aged 15 and above and lasts three years for Nursing Assistants or four years for Nursing Assistants. In addition to theoretical and practical teaching content, vocational school training also offers compulsory general education subjects and placements in various practice-related areas.
