I am 26 years old and act’o-soft’s first trained dual student.
I wanted to use my A-levels to study – but I couldn’t really imagine studying full-time. I had known act’o-soft since the 9th grade, when I did a 2-week internship there.
Since I really liked it at act’o-soft during my internship and was initially undecided about which path to take after school, I simply took a look at the act’o-soft website and discovered the job advertisement for the dual study program. I was immediately attracted by the opportunity to put my desire to study into practice and start working straight away.
