Hochschule der Bayerischen Wirtschaft (HDBW)

The Hochschule der Bayerischen Wirtschaft (HDBW) has developed a short manual focussing on quality standard for apprenticeships. The manual focusses on the general conditions an apprenticeship should fulfil, e.g. a contract between the stakeholders (apprentice-company-HEI) or selection procedures of apprentices and the importance of mentoring.

Mentoring does not just encompasses having a supervisor or a contact person at the HEI and the company but also being introduced to the company and promoting the individual building of competencies.
