Vocational school students from Nuremberg gain insights into research and infrastructure work at LIfBi

01.07.2019

Trainee specialists in market and social research, their trainers and teachers at the vocational business school 4 in Nuremberg are guests at the Leibnitz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) on July 2. Executive Director of Administration Dr. Robert Polgar presents the Institute’s main areas of work together with Dr. Lydia Kleine and Daniel Bela, who are responsible for the training of apprentices at the LIfBi.

Daniel Bela informs guests from the vocational business school 4 in Nuremberg about the Research Data Center LIfBi. 

The LIfBi offers apprenticeships for specialists in market and social research, office management assistants, and IT specialists with a focus on systems integration, with two of these training programs beginning each year.

As early as the first year after the foundation of the Institute, the LIfBi Board of Directors had decided to support the initiative of the Leibniz Association on dual training aiming at the retention of specialist staff as part of the implementation of the Pact for Research and Innovation of the Joint Science Conference (GWK) (see Leibniz website). In the summer of 2015, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce for Upper Franconia Bayreuth approved the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories as a training organization.
