Together with Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Telekom sponsors the annual Arbeitgeberpreis für Bildung. This prize recognizes educational ideas, initiatives, and concepts at all levels of education – early-years, school, vocational, and university – that successfully implement new, pioneering ways of learning. It is presented at the Deutscher Arbeitgebertag in front of an audience of thousands drawn from society, politics, and the business world.
In 2018, the focus was on projects that exemplify how innovations and educational success can result from taking new, perhaps even unfamiliar approaches. The awards went to projects where conventional educational institutes are working together with partners such as parental initiatives, committed individuals, other educational institutes, or businesses.
