Telfs Technical High School

In cooperation with BRG/BORG Telfs, we offer a unique model of general and specialist education. Our five-year training course satisfies all the content requirements of both the AHS upper school level (‘Oberstufe’) and apprenticeship training. Accordingly, pupils completing their education with us obtain both their Matura and an apprenticeship qualification, which opens up all paths to a future career – whether they wish to look for a job straightaway or to study at university first.

Pupils take the apprenticeship examination at the end of the fourth year, while the fifth year is primarily devoted to general education subjects and the AHS examination (‘Reifeprüfung’).

What you can expect from the Technical High School:

  • The full higher general education secondary school curriculum is taught over five years.
  • This is accompanied in the first four years by simultaneous practical and theoretical training in mechatronics/automation technology. Practical professional training is held in Thöni’s workshops and laboratories, using the latest equipment.
  • Prior to the seventh and eighth school years, pupils take part in a four-week industrial placement in the summer holidays, either in this country or abroad.
  • The limited number of available places means that maximum attention can be devoted to each and every pupil.

The Thöni Academy building houses both the classrooms of the technical branch of BRG/BORG Telfs and the teaching workshops and laboratories. There are opportunities to meet BRG/BORG pupils from other training courses in sports weeks, language weeks and trips, while several subjects are also taught in the BRG/BORG school building. There also joint projects which promote contact with Thöni apprentices.

All further information on training and how to apply is available from BRG/BORG Telfs and www.tg-telfs.tsn.at.

Further Education

The key to success

The personal and professional development of our employees is a matter of great importance to us. Which is why we support them not only by providing them with external training opportunities but also by way of our internal further education offers.

From first-aid courses to firefighting instruction, from apprentice training to management development programmes, from language courses to Excel courses, and from internal to external courses – all of our employees, including apprentices, have a chance to further their development in accordance with their own individual abilities and requirements.

Body Tank

“A healthy mind lives in a healthy body”

We stand behind this motto and offer employees not only their own fitness studio with professional staff but also a range of regular courses and events.

Research and Development

Always at the forefront

Research and development is an important aspect of our corporate strategy and an essential factor in maintaining our long-term competitiveness. The central research and development department is incorporated within the structure of the Thöni Academy. Every day, we work on creating new solutions and optimising our core technology for new and improved processes and products, to keep one step ahead across all parts of the company.

Together with our various departments, the direct involvement of R&D employees in different phases of the product development process is an essential factor of our economic success. Our dynamic teams work within a broad-based task spectrum, ranging from material development to process optimisation and on to the development of complex plants and machinery.

In the aluminium division, our focus is not only on the development of new materials but also strongly directed to process optimisation and the introduction of new production processes. For instance, an innovative hydroforming system will shortly become operational at our new plant in Pfaffenhofen. Other outstanding developments in recent years include the PU extrusion plant for manufacturing hoses designed for use in demanding applications and forward-looking biogas plants with patented paddle agitators.
