The Centre for Training and Competence Development (ZWEK – Zentrum für Weiterbildung und Kompetenzentwicklung) is a central facility of Hochschule Düsseldorf - University of Applied Sciences. Its goal is to improve studying conditions through a range of offers in the areas of further training, academic advice as well as individual career guidance.
We support students through various workshops aimed at skills development in the following areas: Learning and work techniques, media skills, communication and presentation, job applications and writing workshops. We also offer cross-faculty language courses as well as “German as a Foreign Language” classes at different levels. In addition, we advise students on academic writing and provide individual guidance in career planning.
On the 1st of July 2015, the Centre for Training and Competence Development became part of the Career Service and the Cisco Networking Academy, which have been established at HSD for many years.
