VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING IN GERMANY

THROUGH PRACTICE AND THEORY TO SKILLED EMPLOYEE

Also available in Deutsch, 한국어

Vocational education and training is a pillar of the German education system and takes on an important function in the social market economy. No formal restrictions to access are present for vocational education and training. Every student can apply for a training position, regardless if they have completed school, and which school they have completed. This removes barriers to the training system and enables a broad sector of the population to take a recognized vocational qualification and thereby have a good chance on the labour market.
