Vocational education in Germany

May 07, 2012 Von: Anja Spohr Kategorie: Working in Germany Noch keine Kommentare →

Push for international apprenticeships

The “Emsland” is a small county in Northern Germany, down-to-earth and economically affected by a solid mid size company environment. Even more we should be surprised to see, that the Emsland startet a pilot project to train young Spanish adults as of summer 2012 in the trade and repair business. Language courses and an orientational training included. The chance for young and motivate people to get a solid and professinal vocational education is rising.


“Dual education

The most popular way in Germany to get a proper training to find a solid job is the so called “dual education”. On the one it is  a reliable system with certified quality. On the other hand this system offers a lage scale of different opportunities in almost all industries. No matter if you chose to become a barber, electrician or a banker, the dual eduacation system makes a point on guaranteeing a balanced combination between theory and practice.

Reliable commitment and steadiness assumed

The particular company procures practical oriented knowledge. The apprentices go to the so called “Berufsschule” (trade schools), either on a weekly basis or on block-release courses. To get the approval to participate in the final examinations, an apprentice in Gemany needs to proof what he/she learned over the years. Normally this is approved by the trainer of  the particular company. To graduate successfully it is important to be steady and reliable as an examinee. The apprenticeship offers a  very good preparation for the professional careers. The mixture between theory and practice supports apprentices becoming valuable employees. It is quite obvious that we will need lots of those valuable employees in the future.

The commendable andprovident example from the Emsland should become a role model.
