We provide an initial overview of the structure and process as well as the possibilities of shortening the vocational training, support with a professional orientation and, if necessary, pass on suitable contact persons. The counseling is open-ended and thus oriented to the needs of those seeking advice.

Chamber of Notaries Saxony
The Chamber of Notaries of Saxony advises university dropouts on training as notary clerks. Work in the notary’s office is as varied and colorful as life itself. Notaries handle cases that come from the everyday life. You need a flair for dealing with people and an open ear for questions.
Whether it is a will, the fundation of a company or the purchase of a house – the profession is never boring. In contrast to lawyers, notaries are neutral public officials. They provide legal advice to the parties involved and prepare and implement deeds. Notary clerks help with this. They process documents independently and are in constant contact with clients, authorities and courts.

Dropouts have the opportunity to learn a so-called green profession. Today, modern agricultural companies, also take on services, ecological and balancing functions for our society, nature and the environment. They also make a significant contribution to economic development as contractors and employers in rural areas.
