Technical College Maturity in Two Years

From the 2024/25 School Year, students can obtain Technical College Maturity (Fachhochschulreife) at Klax School within two years. The Vocational Secondary School specializing in health and social care with a focus on social pedagogy provides prospective educators with specialist knowledge for their future ahead of their academic studies.

The Vocational Secondary School concludes with the 12th Grade and qualifies students to study at a technical college (Fachhochschule). At the end the young people acquire comprehensive vocational, social and personal skills. For this purpose, theoretical basics are combined with practical knowledge transfer in internships.

All subjects can basically be studied at a technical college (Fachhochschule) with this type of degree.
