Wilhelma trains young people to become animal keepers and gardeners for decorative plants. Due to the great demand, it is advisable to apply as early as possible for a trainee post. There are at least twenty times as many applicants amongst school-leavers as we have posts on offer.
As a rule there are also far more applications for practical training courses than there are course places.
Wilhelma offers places for schools' practical training courses. These are gratis and generally last for 4 weeks. The few places are kept free for school trainees. Other trainees can only be accepted in exceptional cases.
