School Profile Vocational Schools in Korbach and Bad Arolsen
The Vocational Schools of Korbach and Bad Arolsen (BSK) are a centre of vocational competencies offering its pupils and students various opportunities of education and career-oriented training in the region Waldeck-Frankenberg, according to the maxim of “advanced education and training.”
With about 2,500 pupils, respectively students, the BSK are one of the biggest state-approved vocational schools of the Federal State of Hesse.
Within the scope of their dual vocational education, pupils visit the part-time school in one of the following professional fields:
- construction technology
- chemistry, physics, biology
- electrical engineering
- nutrition and domestic science
- colour technique and interior design
- wood technology
- body care/personal hygiene
- metal technology/automotive engineering
- economics and administration
Visiting one of our full-time school types which are preparing for vocational education and study, pupils aim at achieving a state-approved school-leaving qualification. In addition, we cooperate with the “Fachhochschule des Mittelstandes/advanced technical college (FHM)” in a joint study centre. Here, students can complete their bachelor’s degrees extra-occupationally. So, pupils can reach the school-leaving qualification of various full-time school types and even the academic title “Bachelor of Arts” at our school.
The following areas of studies can be visited in our full-time school types:
- Professional School of Economics:
Fields: business management, hospitality management
- Vocational Secondary School/Grammar School:
Fields: economics, economics (bilingual), health and social affairs (focus on health and education), vocational informatics (focus on practical informatics)
- Technical Secondary School:
Fields: engineering (focus on mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or construction technology), economics (focus on economics and administration), social studies and services
- Vocational School for the transition to an apprenticeship (BüA):
Fields: metal technology, electrical engineering, office management, nutrition/gastronomy/home economics, social studies and services, health
In addition, we are working together with our regional schools for lower and intermediate secondary education. In this regard, we offer these pupils vocational classes in addition to general education aiming at giving pupils an orientation for their future careers.
As a legally independent vocational school, we also offer further education and training courses individually coordinated with the business community.
The BSK employs approximately 141 full-time and part-time teachers as well as pedagogical and non-educational staff (administrative staff, caretakers, pedagogical IT support, school social workers).
As BSK, we see ourselves as an educational institution whose primary goal is to enable learners to achieve learning success in all types of schools and educational programmes. The establishment of individualised studies, encouraging students to learn and revise independently and to take control of their own progress, is at the centre of our pedagogical activities. Modern learning landscapes support this overall pedagogical concept and ensure that quality learning and working spaces are developed in which encounter, work and well-being are possible. With equally qualified and committed teachers, we impart a future-oriented education as well as the competencies for independent learning and action in a constantly changing working world.
In addition to the individualisation of learning processes, current focal points and projects of our school development work are the implementation of digitalisation, the preparation of interested pupils for the acquisition of internationally recognised language certificates and the commitment as a “School against Racism – School with Courage”. We are also certified according to AZAV (Accreditation and Approval Regulation for Employment Promotion) as well as a “Digital School” and a “MINT-friendly School”.
To achieve our school objectives, we closely cooperate with parents/guardians, training companies and all institutions and organisations involved in education and training.
The use of a quality management system for the continuous quality development and assurance of teaching and the school’s educational offers is a matter of course in our school work. With the consistent implementation of our school mission statement and the resulting derivation of strategic measures, we ensure that our quality demands described above are met.
With cooperation projects within the framework of Erasmus+, we want to live the European idea of diversity and peaceful coexistence without borders. Our school community consists of students from over 45 nations. The promotion of mobility, language learning and digital skills, the key competences for shaping a self-determined life and for social participation in a peaceful world, are central concerns for us.
