We have all complained about the education system. There is always a competence that is not covered and that your current or future job needs you to have. What would you need and want to learn if you had the chance? We need you to find new ideas for the improvement of post-curriculum education. This is what we propose to you: BFI Wien, the largest vocational training and educational institute in Austria, knows that an investment in education and training is needed in the current job market. Which loopholes are there in the current education system? What specifically should be taught and in which format? These are the subjects that we need answers to. As Nelson Mandela once said: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". So take the challenge and join the contest to co-create the future of learning.
