Sequa gGmbH

Business Segment “Vocational Education and Training (VET)”

VET and professional mobility are amongst our core issues.


In an international scale, we give advice to decision-makers in the VET sector, we search and place VET experts and design and execute projects and programmes.

What makes the German VET system unique?

What makes the German VET system unique is that theoretical education at school and practical education are intermeshed and time-shared.

The role of our shareholders’ network in VET

The German chambers and business associations, i.e. our shareholders’ network, play an outstanding and significant role within the German VET system. They are providing expertise, experts and trainers to us which we bundle and offer to our clients:

  • 80 regional chambers of commerce and industry are empowered to certify 250 occupations. They operate 300 VET centres.
  • The chambers monitor the in-company training part, issue examination regulations and certificates, conduct exams, and participate in the development of standards and curricula.
