KOCH will also be supporting the following organisations over the course of 2024:

We are partners of the Primary and Technical Secondary School (Grund- und Werkrealschule) in Pfalzgrafenweiler, the Kepler High School (Kepler-Gymnasium) in Freudenstadt and the Heinrich Schickhardt School (Heinrich-Schickhardt-Schule) in Freudenstadt. Together with our team of trainers and apprentices, we offer various programmes, such as job application simulation interviews, tool driver's licenses, support for the SIA project (Schüler- Ingenieur-Akademie) and assistance with a career-oriented project for pupils of the technical secondary school.


Two further projects are being planned: 

  • Planting trees in Pfalzgrafenweiler and the surrounding area: We are actively committed to sustainability and environmental protection in our region and are planning to plant trees. The main aim of this campaign is to restore lost forest areas caused by forest dieback. Trees play a crucial role in climate protection as they bind harmful CO2.
  • Cooperation with the Black Forest National Park: As part of our introductory week, our trainees and students gain valuable insights into the topics of sustainability and nature in the northern Black Forest directly at the National Park Center. This cooperation enables them to gain in-depth insights into sustainable practices and the natural environment, giving our trainees and students a unique learning experience.
