With a footprint of 100 square meters, the charity’s exhibit is a showcase for career opportunities and boasts more than 100 stations featuring fun, hands-on and interactive exercises relating to a wide range of jobs. The Talenthaus is Technikzentrum’s response to the increasingly problematic shortage of skilled workers in Germany, which coincides with numerous unfilled training positions and high drop-out rates.
When the Talenthaus isn't busy welcoming didacta visitors, it spends days or weeks at various locations as an extracurricular resource that is tailored to the needs of the relevant city or region. The Talenthaus is a copyright-protected training system that pools the charity's 20 years of experience in providing vocational guidance to more than 880,000 young people. The "careers rooms" - which cover jobs in construction/architecture, IT, environmental work, mechanical engineering, electronics, health and logistics - target participants' personal capabilities to help young people gain an insight into their own talents and potential future career paths. The equipment in the Talenthaus has been financed with subsidies from the EU and the ERDF program and using the organization’s own funds.
