Every qualification with a connection

Fit for work or study – educational pathways and cooperation between the upper level centres

All paths and qualifications are open to anyone who attends an integrated secondary school because integrated secondary schools also offer the opportunity to orientate oneself professionally at an early stage or to pursue the Abitur for later studies.

The Upper level centres (OSZ) are important cooperation partners of the integrated secondary schools. In addition to the professionally-oriented training courses, they also offer the opportunity to obtain the Abitur or the university of applied sciences entrance qualification.

In 2013/14, the first class with students from the new integrated secondary schools (ISS) took their final exams and moved on to dual training and vocational training courses at the OSZ and vocational schools.

Berlin standards for cooperation between learning locations

Together with their business partners, eight Berlin OSZs are now trying out in the pilot project “Berlin standards for learning location cooperation” how cooperation can be done even better.

The individual pilot projects, goals and structures of the model project are presented in the brochure “Training in Schools and Businesses”. The project is funded by the Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family.
