The programme allows students to have theoretical studies and practical training within its duration. This equips students with realistic experience and the opportunity to take on important positions upon graduation.

The Bosch TGA programme was established over 100 years ago in Germany and has been adopted and developed in Vietnam since 2013. The curriculum includes 25 percent of theoretical study time at the LILAMA2 International College of Technology, and 75 percent of practical training, during which time, apprentices can work with modern equipment at Bosch Powertrain Solutions Plant in Long Thanh, Dong Nai.

“This programme provides young people with the opportunity to improve their employability. Being a TGA apprentice, besides being trained in knowledge and skills, thanks to the full tuition waiver and the monthly allowance, I can support my parents and become more financially independent,” shared Nguyen Thi Xuan Thuong, a third-year student, class of 2017-2021.

TGA (German: Technisch Gewebliche Ausbildung), which can be understood as “Vocational training workshop”, is a concept that has been practiced and improved at Bosch for more than 100 years. Until this day, TGA model has been adapted, with more than 100,000 apprentices in many countries around the world.

In Vietnam, TGA’s apprentices are well trained by a team of highly skilled professionals and a modern learning environment. All tuition fee and facilities are 100 percent sponsored by Bosch Group. The German standard programme is designed to improve the employability of the country’s young labour force.

As of April 2020, 168 students have been studying at Bosch TGA (of which 24 percent are female students), and 88 of them have graduated. In 2020, TGA is recruiting new courses with the quota of 24 students studying Mechatronics.

Similar to previous years, the Admission procedure of TGA are: the high school transcript of the last three years 2020, 2019, 2018, followed by the IQ, EQ and face-to-face interviews to select 24 best candidates with the highest aspirations to participate in this free and high-quality vocational programme.

This is a chance for those who have a passion for engineering and wanted to have practical and holistic studying experience.
