    Who can take part?

    The qualification programme as a software developer is aimed at:

    • IT talents
    • College drop-outs
    • Job-seekers who have the right skills but not the right qualifications to be offered a permanent position to date
    • Pupils who are about to or have just graduated may apply

    Interested parties who already work at Volkswagen should apply via the internal job portal.

  • Start date and duration

    When can I apply?

    The application period for the next training is from 28 February until 02 April 2023.

    • The planned start of the two-year qualification is on 01 November 2023.
    • The program is scheduled to end in October 2025.
  • Certificate 

    What am I after the training?

    Once you have successfully completed the training, you will be a Junior Software Developer.

    And for participants who do not have a professional qualification, the programme is followed up by an additional 4 months of vocational training as an IT specialist in application development with final Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) examination. You therefore stand to benefit twice from Faculty 73.
