The Westermann Berufsbildung brand is known for learning and teaching materials, above all for those that support vocational training in technical, health- and care-related and childcare professions.
Westermann has been contributing to the development of vocational training textbooks since 1948. In 1954 Westermann even produced a patented, specialist textbook to make working easier. At the time this was new: different knowledge areas were colour-coded to make targeted reading and learning easier. Nowadays the data reference books for electrical and IT technicians are especially popular features of the Westermann range.
