The vocational college has important materials for training. These can be:
- Text books
- CD's with information, animation or self-tests
- Materials or studies from other countries
The apprentice needs to experience school and workplace training as integrated. Therefore, it is a good idea for the trainer to be informed of the main teaching materials that the school uses. It will also keep your professional knowledge up-to-date.
In addition to the material provided by the vocational school, other authorities like the Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber of Crafts or the association of your profession may provide helpful materials.
Every trade has its own journals, newspapers and websites with discussions and news. They can, for example, be issued by the employers association, the trade organisation or various committees.
Prepare a list of relevant magazines, websites, etc. for the apprentice and make the materials you use in your company accessible.
