Any adolescent learning a craft or trade usually does so under the dual system of vocational education and training. The venues of this training are both the company and the part-time vocational school. The company employs the apprentice and is responsible for the practical training. The part-time vocational school is in charge of the theoretical instruction including hands-on learning..
Some 40 different state-recognized occupations are taught at BBS Brinkstrasse. The following survey shows the occupational fields that make up the technical profile of BBS Brinkstrasse:

The mobility project "Support of trainees leading to European Competences in Foreign Apprenticeship systems" of vocational schools of the district of Osnabrück Brinkstraße has consistently developed. Thus, according to its mission statement, the school has internationalized and networked on. It was always the primary goal to provide, together with the training partners of the school 3-6 weeks placements within Europe. In May 2014, the second contract part of the Leonardo certificate will now be completed. Thus, the BBS Brinkstraße has complied with the plans to 100 %. From June 2011 to May 2014 a total of 130 trainees (2x65) have been sent to other European countries. During the same period about 50 foreign students were enrolled in the companies of the Osnabrück area. The foreign exchange students of the BBS now come from almost all professions of the school (electrical engineering, metal engineering, mechatronics, opticians, automotive engineering, natural sciences, information technology and material science) as well as from the school-based vocational training in the IT sector. The BBS Brinkstraße tried to give to any willing trainee of the dual or school training an offer for an exchange with its partners in Hungary, Denmark , Norway, England (2 partners ), Spain (2 partners ), the Netherlands (2 locations) and Turkey. Other partnerships in Sweden, Finland and Ireland are planned to be realized with the aim of exchanges from 2015 on.
For the BBS Brinkstraße and their nearly 65 participating companies in the Osnabrück region exchanges got high priority. The interest is growing still and new companies have joined the program in 2013. With Denmark 12 students and with Norway 2-4 students per year are placed ; Hungary up to 6 students are assigned; Spain takes about 12 students , and the Netherlands 14-16 students. In 2013 first contacts with new partners in England with Derby (OS twinned city) and King's Lynn were deepened with teacher and student exchanges. It has been agreed that 10-14 trainees will be sent. An internship of students from Derby College will take place in March 2014. The quota with Turkey will not exceed 2-4 students due to the operational structures. With another partner in Spain in 2014 exchanges are planned within the year.
