- 7 days -


As part of the advanced training programme, the SPDL-scholarship holders visit vocational learning spaces on four days and take part in full-day excursions on three days. Here they gain insights in the vocational fields of action of geospatial technologies, national park management, biodiversity, ecology, education, and agricultural and forestry sciences in order to illustrate the practical relevance of these thematic fields and to establish contacts with representatives of vocational practice. Moreover, this allows the different natural and cultural environments of Germany to be experienced in a participant-activating manner.
