Our Vision and Mission

At the OPUVIA ACADEMY we are committed to providing our apprentices, trainees and foundation year students with lasting and successful studies and training for job in this technology-driven information age. As a state-accredited education and career service organization under private ownership, we promote especially independent entrepreneurial-creative thinking and innovating skills. We provide the relevant specialist, decision-making and social skills through modern pedagogical concepts in flexible study programmes. As a cosmopolitan, world-class Academy, we cultivate both local and global perspectives and actively promote international mobility of our learners.
We pursue respectful interpersonal relationships that motivate our students and employees to contribute to the shaping and further development of the academy and each individual. At each study location we cultivate a personal atmosphere by individually addressing and actively accompanying the unique strengths, life situations and development paths of our learners.
We execute our educational mission with equal responsibility towards both the professional and social requirements demanded of us. Ultimately, our academy sees itself as an inviting platform for imparting knowledge and research in the process of guiding our learners to become independent, responsible and successful personalities.


Our industry specialist tutors are assigned to a learner upon enrollment based on their learning requirements, course and location. Our courses are delivered through a combination of face-to-face tuition at the learner’s place of work and virtual learning via online sessions. Some of our courses also include classroom delivery and group training. For more information on the delivery method for each course, please refer to https://academy.opuvia.com/apprenticeship-programmes/.


As part of every apprenticeship course, learners are required to spend 20% of their contracted working hours undertaking off-the-job training. Off-the-job training is training that is outside of usual workplace duties, but it may still be conducted at your place of work. All time spent studying will be recorded within your personal training diary and your progress will be frequently monitored to ensure you are on track. The time you will need to spend studying is calculated using the following formula:

Total hours required = (contracted working hours per week x programme duration (in weeks)) x 0.2

Here’s an example:

Contracted hours per week:

Total study time:

Average study time per week:
