SAP education software for German schools abroad

SAP SE and the World Association of German Schools Abroad (WDA) have signed a cooperation agreement. By providing access to SAP software free of charge in the future, the WDA is further supporting digitization at schools abroad.

Berlin/Walldorf, September 2, 2021 – SAP SE and the World Association of German Schools Abroad today signed a cooperation agreement in Berlin. The agreement gives all WDA member schools access to SAP’s Young Thinkers program. This framework program gives interested schools free access to SAP software to SAP software, training opportunities and community memberships.

“We are pleased to welcome German schools abroad as community members to prepare young people for the future by sharing our knowledge, experience, technology and methodology” says Christiane Bauer, Founder & global head of SAP Young Thinkers.

Thilo Klingebiel, Managing Director of the World Association of German Schools Abroad, commented on the new cooperation: “I am very pleased that we are putting the previously sporadic cooperation between individual schools abroad and SAP Young Thinkers on a new, broad footing. All 141 members of the World Association of German Schools Abroad, including 115 recognized German schools abroad, will benefit directly from this agreement.” The cooperation underlines the claim of German schools abroad to be pioneers in digital teaching and learning. In today’s world, the acquisition of in-depth IT skills is clearly part of the educational mission of German schools abroad, Klingebiel added. The new cooperation will give schools worldwide access to sophisticated teaching materials in this area.

The cooperation is primarily aimed at teachers of STEM subjects at member schools of the World Association of German Schools Abroad. However, board members, principals and business managers can also introduce the program at their school.
