ÖJAB’s BPI (Berufspädagogisches Institut – Vocational Training Institute) qualifies young people and adults for employment via primarily technical, business related, and language related vocational training and also offers career orientation as well as assistance in getting integrated into the labor market.

An important goal of ÖJAB is to leave nobody behind in our society, to which end we work to reduce unemployment and facilitate qualified employment.

ÖJAB'S BPI – Education through collaboration

ÖJAB’s BPI (Berufspädagogisches Institut – Vocational Training Institute) has its own workshops and workshop labs, a private school operating under public law (BPI Mödling), and can look back upon decades of experience.

In initial and continuing vocational education and training, in-school apprenticeship programs, intensive training courses for specialized workers, and bridging measures that convey the knowledge and skills required by specific fields of work in Austria, the BPI works to develop participants’ vocational and social skills to the point at which they can complete recognized apprenticeships and sustainably establish careers in positions that require the training they’ve received.

The BPI works together with sponsors and private enterprises large and small.

An increasingly important focus of the BPI over the past few years has been on working with asylum-seekers and migrants. Such individuals are offered orientation and practical testing phases („competence centre“), instruction in the German language, and special courses of vocational training.

In terms of their overall number of participants, involved ÖJAB employees, and realized projects, vocational orientation and training measures makeup the lion’s share of ÖJAB’s education and integration-focused activities.
