yes the contents is the same, but literally translated it means: she gives up = sie gibt auf

Ausbildung can be translated as apprenticeship. So she ended her contract to learn a trade.

She then resumes her education. Of course I am interpreting this sentence totally out of any context.

Please correct me anyone!

"give up" is more or less the opposite of "resume" :)

(wieder) aufnehmen would work for the meaning of "resume" -- but not aufgeben.
