Basic Education System | Education in Germany

Full-time or part-time classes provide basic general knowledge or basic vocational knowledge relating to a certain occupational field. 

Trade and technical schools are attended voluntarily after vocational training has been completed and practical work experience gained, in some cases even after many years of practical work, or on proof of special ability. These schools provide advanced vocational training (leading for example to masters’ or technicians’ qualifications). Full-time attendance is for between 6 months and 3 years and part-time attendance normally for 6 to 8 half-year periods.
