The perfect method to find the best apprentices

There has been much debate about school grades not being a reliable indicator of future performance in the workplace. They do not provide a valid prediction regarding the professional success of the candidates because they are neither objective nor fair and, most importantly, do not reflect the requirements of the professional world. It is therefore important to objectively assess the relevant professional skills (such as technical understanding and mathematics) and interdisciplinary competencies (for example the ability to concentrate and diligence) using psychological tests.

We can provide you with effective processes for reliably selecting your apprentices. Instead of having to plough through applications, you will be able to rely on our selection methods which use scientifically profound diagnostics based on psychological tests. Our solutions will not only save you time, but also ensure that you find the best apprentices and dual students for your company. We can provide not only standardised and preconfigured test bundles geared to recruiting apprentices but also bespoke tests to meet your individual requirements.

For small and medium-sized companies, it is especially important not to simply select the candidates with the best grades, but those who are motivated, committed and socially competent and who best fit your organisation. After all, hiring the wrong person can quickly affect the success of a business.


We have many years of experience in the recruiting of apprentices and dual students involving hundreds of occupational profiles – from commercial, technical and social professions to specific entry programmes for police officers. Our technologies and methods can be individually configured following a requirement analysis: you simply tell us which skills and personality traits are necessary for an apprenticeship in your company. And we are always ready to add features that, in our experience, are important to generate a comprehensive decision-making basis for your candidate selection.

The methods and selection procedures can take the form of web-based personnel questionnaires, online psychological tests, and assessment centres – always tailored to your specific requirements.

You are not the only one benefitting - so do your applicants: you receive a selection of suitable candidates – and all of them have a fair chance based on performance due to a selection procedure that does not rely on grades.
