The GDCh final award is an award from the German Chemical Society (GDCh) for graduates of chemistry-relevant training courses such as chemical-technical assistants (CTA), chemical laboratory assistants or chemical technicians. Graduates from neighboring disciplines such as PTA and BTA can also receive the award.
The GDCh-Abiturpreis is an award from the German Chemical Society (GDCh) for the best students in chemistry at grammar schools or comprehensive schools. The GDCh-Abiturpreis is intended to strengthen the interest in chemistry among the best students.
Internships for students are only rarely advertised. In general, internships are possible either in industry or at universities/directly in the working groups. If you are interested, you should contact the respective institution/company directly.
Contacts from companies can be found, for example, via
• the employers' associations of the individual federal states. An overview of the 10 regional chemical employers' associations of the Federal Chemical Employers' Association (BAVC) can be found here: https://www.bavc.de/ueber-uns/paniesverbaende-partnerverbaende
• the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in your city www.ihk.de
• the business directory at www.meinestadt.de
When it comes to companies, you should always make sure that they are also training companies, then there is a higher chance that internships will be offered.
Contacts of the universities can be found at www.chemie-studieren.de
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft explicitly advertises internships for students on its website: https://www.fraunhofer.de/de/jobs-und-karriere/schueler/schuelerpraktikum.html
There is also the possibility to find out more about the offers of student laboratories at www.lernortlabor.de and, if necessary, to use their offers.
The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is a competition in which students from around 70 countries measure their performance in working on theoretical and experimental tasks in the field of chemistry. First there will be four rounds in Germany. The four best participants can then take part in the international final round as a German IChO team.
DECHEMAX, the Dechema student club for chemical engineering and Biotechnology, has compiled a list of competitions from other institutions on its homepage.
More than 27,000 young people are already successfully pursuing an apprenticeship in chemistry. In the GDCh, this group and the professional branch of laboratory technicians, chemical-technical assistants, etc. are represented by the Vocational Education Working Group, which also offers contacts for interested students .
The Elementary Diversity platform provides comprehensive information on the diverse training professions in the chemical industry, tips for applications and contact addresses for companies providing training in the chemical industry. The Verband Deutscher Chemotechniker und Chemisch-Technische Assistenten eV (Association of German Chemical Technicians and Chemical-Technical Assistants) provides information specifically on the training courses for chemical-technical assistants at chemistry schools.
Further information on apprenticeships can be found, for example, at the employment agency and beroobi.
