As a patron of the BildungsRegion Aachen, the StädteRegion Aachen sees its goal as offering the best possible educational opportunities for all the people here - because education and qualifications are the best foundation for mutual, democratic cooperation and participation in society. Learning is a current topic across all generations and at all ages. At the same time, well-educated and highly-trained men and women are a vital key to innovation, growth and progress in the StädteRegion Aachen. That is why our role and our goal is to create opportunities through education.
The role of the StädteRegion Aachen in education is wide ranging, starting from early years education, including schools and professional training, all the way up to on-going learning. The StädteRegion Aachen provides childcare facilities and schools and is a key hub of the StädteRegion Aachen education network.
From early intervention and family education, through youth support, including education and individual support for all children and young people, all the way to further training at any time of life: the StädteRegion Aachen promotes and supports communication and cooperation between everyone who holds responsibility for education.
The education office of the StädteRegion Aachen provides support and a point of contact for the region's educational institutions. With support from the national "Lernen vor Ort" (Learning Locally) programme, the education office is working to build up and expand a network which brings together all those involved in education. The idea is to create a holistic approach to education by aligning and linking various sectors of education, from early years to education in retirement.
