Are you interested in an internship, a place on a training scheme or a suitable course of study in which you’re able to pursue your own interests and acquire some initial work experience? Are you still at school? Or do you already have your secondary education under your belt and are looking for opportunities for a professional career? If the answer is “yes”, then take a look at the opportunities we offer. Here you can find exciting commercial or technical training opportunities which will give you the perfect start to your career.

Für eine fundierte Ausbildung ist die LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH zuständig. Sie betreut übergreifend alle Auszubildenden der LÄPPLE Gruppe – und das bereits seit mehr als 80 Jahren. The LÄPPLE apprentice school was established as a department in its own right back in 1930 and became a separate training company in 1986. Having dealt with trainees for so many years, LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH has a wealth of experience and can provide you with the best possible support as you launch your professional career. Our pass rate and retention rate after training are both nearly 100%.

What sets us apart as a training company? Our trainees are introduced step by step to the tasks of their chosen occupational fields and have the opportunity to actively participate in their own real-life projects.

We believe it is important that you choose your profession or study course with your goals in mind and with a long-term focus – in line with your interests, inclinations and aptitudes. Do you have any questions about your options? We will be happy to offer support and advice.


Are you interested in training at LÄPPLE and have you already successfully completed your secondary education? Are you looking for a company in which you can develop your own skills and receive the very best preparation for day-to-day business? If so, then you’ve come to the right place! We offer intensive training programmes to teach you the key theoretical concepts, which you can then apply to real-world projects under competitive conditions.


  • Tool engineers
  • Machining engineers (in Heilbronn only)
  • Industrial engineers
  • Electronics engineers for operating technology
  • Industrial management assistants
  • Warehouse logistics specialists (in Heilbronn only)
  • Technical product designers (in Heilbronn only)

Have we won you over? Then apply for one of our vocational training options. Detailed information on all of our opportunities can be found on the LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH page.


Are you someone who doesn’t just want to learn the theory, but also wants to gain practical experience? We offer two ways of completing a practical course of study.



Are you interested in learning new concepts and applying them to real-world projects? If so, you have every reason to apply for a place on the LÄPPLE dual study course.

We regularly offer study places in collaboration with the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) with alternating theoretical and practical modules. This means you will either be based at LÄPPLE or at the university according to which particular phase of the course you are currently in.

Do you work well independently but also are confident working in a team? Have you completed your general or vocational higher-education entrance qualifications? If the answer is ‘yes’ and you are also interested in maths, physics, English and German, then a dual study course at LÄPPLE is open to you.


If you want to do more than just get your degree and are interested in earning an officially recognised vocational qualification at the same time, then enrolling onto a cooperative study course may be just what you’re looking for.

This option involves first completing a shortened training programme, followed by a course of study at Heilbronn University. So once you graduate you’ll have two qualifications under your belt, giving you the perfect springboard into your professional career.

Are you interested in maths, physics, English and German? In addition, do you have some technical knowledge and collaborative spirit to bring to the team, and have you completed your general or vocational higher-education entrance qualifications? Then take a look at our current openings, and find the right course of cooperative study for you. We look forward to receiving your application!

Take a look now and secure your place! You can find all dual and cooperative study course places on the LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH page.


Are you interested in a placement in which you can get your first taste of the world of work and acquire some initial work experience? Are you interested in working with metal or in carrying out office-based admin duties?

If so, we invite you to do your work experience placement with LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH!



Regardless of which professional development opportunity you decide to pursue, places are limited, which means you should submit your application as early as possible before the start of your planned work experience placement, internship, training course or studies.

We begin our selection process and contract offers early as well, so the earlier you get your application in, the better your chances of securing a place at LÄPPLE.

Please send your application documents to LÄPPLE AUSBILDUNGS GmbH, who are in charge of handling training on behalf of the entire LÄPPLE Group.

All information on the application process can be found here.
