26 apprentices and students start their career at FBB: Launch of the 2019 application process

01.08.18 10:15

Today, 26 young men and women between the ages of 16 and 24 have begun their training or studies at the Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB). 17 apprentices start their apprenticeship training in commercial and technical training occupations, as well as nine students starting a dual-study programme.


Dr. Manfred Bobke-von Camen, Chief Human Resources Officer at Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “The fact that we are an attractive training company is reflected in more than 800 applications which have reached us. We are currently training 92 apprentices and students and are investing in good general conditions. For example, at the beginning of the year we opened a new training workshop for technical occupations on the BER campus. We are looking for creative minds and technical talents for the training year 2019.”

Diverse perspectives

In the next two weeks, the trainees and students will first get an insight into the different FBB departments and the three airport sites. The highlight is a three-day trip to Mirow on the Mecklenburg Lake District where apprentices and dual-studies students get to know each other better through group activities. The “newcomers” then start their first practical assignments in specialist departments at SXF, TXL and BER. In the first year of training, the new apprentices and students will be supported by mentors from previous years with help and advice. The trainees’ theoretical training takes place in teaching blocks for a total of 13 weeks per training year, at a secondary school centre in Berlin or Brandenburg. With the three-year training for commercial trainees and three and a half years of training for the commercial and technical occupations, the apprentices will gain the IHK vocational qualification after passing examinations. Every three months, students will complete a science-related degree programme at the Berlin School of Economics and Law as well as practical assignments at FBB. After successful completion, students receive the Bachelor title.

1st August is the start of the application period for the training year 2019. In the coming year, FBB will offer six apprenticeships and five study programmes. The application deadline is 31st October 2018.
