GlassCampus is an employee training institution for the glass industries in central Germany. It is located in the city Torgau, which is about two hours south of Berlin. Here, in this region, we find a long-standing history in glass production.
As a joint network of manufacturing companies, a relevant university and a vocational school centre, as well as local and state politics, GlassCampus has provided high-quality, scientifically secured continuing adult education for German speaking participants to date. Our courses are now also available for international participants online.
Prior to esbalishing the adult education program, representatives of the German glass industry were consulted in order to assess the actual market needs. The results disclosed a continious need for training of rather low-skilled workers, as many companies are to hire employees who do not hold a relevant degree or training (apprenticeship).
GlassCampus is part of the vocational training school in Torgau
„TU Bergakademie Freiberg was founded in 1765 in order to drive transformation processes and future technologies. Still today, the university holds this claim: We educate natural scientists and engineers with vision and conscience who take the future into their own hands and help to positively shape the world.“
„As the existing infrastructure at our vocational training school for apprenticed schooling in the field of glass has been notable across the industries in Central and Eastern Germany for years. Most companies send their apprentices to us in order for them to receive an adequate amount of theoredical backround knowledge.“
„Here in Torgau, with its almost 100 years tradition and experience in glass production, we find a perfectly suitable location from which we create high level and appealing adult education for all groups of professionals wihtin this specific industry sector. The county and state administration will help to sustain the offerings in the long run.
