Competence Center for Economic Education - Würth Foundation
The Baden-Württemberg Competence Center for Economic Education uses a range of activities to impart knowledge of economic issues in the classroom in a hands-on way based on learning by doing. Programs for schools in the federal state include, for example, the Würth Education Prize for forward-looking economic projects and the company placement program for teachers—a program for further training that combines online learning with practical elements.
Other focal points of support include the federal state prize for graduates of secondary technical schools, the “trades workshop” as a career counseling service, and the annual management symposium, an event at which participants from schools and the business world address topical issues.
The Baden-Württemberg Competence Center for Economic Education was set up on the initiative of Reinhold Würth under the umbrella of the Würth Foundation in 2005. The Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, Youth and Sports of Baden-Württemberg is a close partner.
