Further Vocational Qualifications and Specialist Vocational Qualifications

Further Vocational Qualifications and Specialist Vocational Qualifications are intended mainly for persons who are already in working life or already have work experience. With the help of these degrees, a person can deepen their knowledge in their own profession.

These qualifications are an excellent way for companies to offer their workers possibilities to develop their professional knowledge and skills.

Depending on the interest and need, we can also offer education in single vocational units if there is no need to complete the entire degree.
