FIT FOR THE FUTURE
Since its foundation more than 25 years ago, Technische Akademie für berufl iche Bildung Schwäbisch Gmünd e.V. (TA) has organised vocational training and advanced training programmes, mainly in the technical and commercial fields. Special events covering different topics supplement the service range in order to provide practical, customised educational programmes for industry. In addition, by developing demand-oriented retraining measures, TA provides for the transfer of technology to the benefit of industry. In the future, especially children and adolescents are to be introduced to technology at an early stage, by experimenting, trying and testing on their own, in order to contribute to talent development in the region. Fit for the job - this motto describes TAs philoso-phy and its attitude with regard to its partici-pants. Its staff have strong educational competence and many years of experience in vocational training for various target groups. In its work, TA Schwäbisch Gmünd follows the gender mainstreaming approach which considers the different life plans of young men and women, different starting positions and ways of tackling ideas. Our intention is to reduce non-equal opportunities and to plan and realise individual and custom-tailored support programmes, especially for participants with migration backgrounds.
