Currently, there are 3,900 training with BMW across the world, with the carmaker registering a five percent apprenticeship quota in in the industry. So far, of the apprentices who finished their training this year, 650 have been offered positions within the group.
As a result in the high demand for a job at BMW, the carmaker announced it will expand the vocational training program to include a technical college entrance qualification (DBFH). This will allow those lucky enough to receive an engineering degree directly after completing their vocational training.
The DBFH program offers six technical degrees: mechatronics engineer, industrial engineering electrician, industrial mechanic production mechanic, motor vehicle body, vehicle construction mechanic and automotive mechatronics engineer.
Perhaps one of the best opportunities offered by BMW targets those students who have not been able to find a training place because of their poor school record. Regardless of the reasons behind this, BMW is offering them 70 positions in an introductory training course of 8 months.
This is the second year BMW is offering such an opportunity. Last year, 28 people attended and 18 have been offered an apprenticeship position this year.
