The Berufsförderungswerk of Fachgemeinschaft Bau (BFW) is the vocational training organization of the employers' association for the building industry of Berlin and Brandenburg.
Vocational training is our core task. Since 1991, more than 35,000 people have been assisted in their vocational development. During the period from 1991 to 1998, a total of 6,903 school leavers have started their apprenticeship training at the "Lehrbauhof", the training center for building trades. Since 1993, the Berufsförderungswerk has also accepted apprentices outside the framework of a company-based training, who otherwise would not have been able to find an apprenticeship.
Moreover we offer preparatory part-time courses for Polier (foreman) and Master qualifications as evening courses. The comprehensive knowledge expected from the Werkpolier (foreman with practical qualification) and the "geprüfter" (certified) Polier (foreman with full qualification) requires not only theoretical but also practical preparation. Because fundamental theoretical knowledge is often lost over longer periods of day-to-day work, the practical course programs are very much in demand.
Apart from the provision of training for school leavers, further training and continuing education for adults is an important part of the portfolio of the Berufsförderungswerk (BFW). Lifelong learning in one's trade or profession and/or learning the skills and knowledge of a related trade or profession is increasingly a normal occurrence in many careers. To meet this demand, the BFW offers a wide spectrum of specific seminars and courses for continuing education.
