Ausbildungswerkstatt Braunschweig e.V.
Ausbildungswerkstatt Braunschweig e.V. Ausbildungswerkstatt (ABW = apprenticeship workshop) Braunschweig e.V. was established on initiative of the German trade union federation in the region of Braunschweig (DGB) and the individual trade unions (i.e. IG Metall) on the 1 st of May 1983.
The idea was to create an employee focused educational organisation in order to contribute to the development of qualified training for young people and offer them apprenticeships and job opportunities. In the following years ABW has developed educational programmes for adults as well in order to dismantle the growing threat of unemployment especially for disadvantaged social groups.
ABW is an non-profit organisation obliged to the qualified improvement of youth and adult educational programmes specialised in developing individual and creative concepts and accomplishing them.
We offer courses for the following target groups in our training workshop on the "sunny south side" of Braunschweig:
  • Young pupils from schools with the need of job orientation and occupational counselling
  • Young unemployed people seeking specialised job training and occupational counselling
  • Unemployed adults (especially long term unemployed) in need of vocational retraining and counselling
  • Employed people retrieving vocational training and career advice
For these target groups we offer various qualifications, vocational training and apprenticeships mainly in the fields of trade & logistics, metal industry, hotel & restaurant business and office administration.
