The Mitterdorf Vocational School (Landesberufsschule Mitterdorf) has been a central hub for training in Austria for 45 years. “Rail” transport has been a core element of our training from the very start. We have worked closely with the RCG to give pupils modern ways to learn. This successful collaboration doesn’t just benefit the RCG apprentices, it also has an impact on Austria’s entire freight forwarding industry. Excursions, field trips and lectures in “rail transport”, all with great support from the RCG over the past 20 years, have made lessons especially enriching and dynamic.
We’re delighted to be continuing this “success model” for the RCG apprentices at the Mitterdorf Vocational School and look forward to what the future will bring!

I am the youngest regional trainer and have been part of the team for a year now. I’m really impressed by everything the RCG offers our young trainees and by the enthusiasm and commitment the whole team brings to the apprenticeship programme. It really thrills me to see these young people brimming with energy and passion as they work on carving out their future careers during their apprenticeships.

We have had the pleasure of being part of the RCG’s in-house freight forwarding and logistics apprenticeships for 20 years now. Many joint steps have been taken towards developing the quality of apprenticeships in the course of our training partnership. A few examples of this include adapting curricula to meet current training requirements, and spearheading the urgently needed reform of the final apprenticeship examination in the State of Vienna.
Together, we have succeeded in motivating our trainees to build on their knowledge above and beyond the dual training programme. The “Business English Certificate”, working towards the university entrance exam and success in a range of competitions (see photo below) are clear proof of this.

Congratulations to the Rail Cargo Group on your 20 year anniversary! We have had the pleasure of supporting RCG apprentices across Austria with our English courses for years. We give them linguistic skills and set them up for a career in the international world of rail logistics. The RCG knows how important it is to have good English skills, and gives its apprentices fantastic language training opportunities to equip them for every challenge they will face. Over the years, we have developed a strong partnership, and one that means a lot to us.
This great collaboration makes us very happy!
Thank you very much and here’s to many more years!
