This offers holders of the high school-leaving certificate the chance to unlock their potential and to have themselves trained as up-and-coming young talents. What makes the dual course of studies unique is the chance to apply theoretical knowledge gained directly to a company’s everyday operations and in doing so to become a valuable part of its operational team!
