The apprenticeship lasts five years and ends with the a-levels.
The objectives are achieved by closely linking the school with the commercial, business and safety/security management sectors. In addition to the regular lessons, a training emphasis is placed on personal leadership skills, general leadership pedagogy, security managers and cyber security, coordination and stamina as well as physical and mental performance (sport), which are offered in a way appropriate to the age of the students. Great importance is attached to practical relevance and preparation for actual working life.
"In the core area we are a business school", says headmaster Manfred Weigert. "But we also offer our pupils two additional focal points that are independent of the school: leadership and security. Two topics that are currently of great importance and will play an even greater role in our society in the future."
Other main focuses of the school are the expansion of language skills - in addition to English and French, Russian is also offered - and sports.
