Dual Vocational Education and Training (VET)
The recipe for success of VET is simple yet particularly effective at the same time: industry and the job market are interlocked. The training, currently for around 360 jobs, is held both within a company and in a vocational school – theory and practice are thus closely tied with the companies and the vocational schools taking on trainees.
Every year, around 600,000 participants in the scheme throughout Germany take the examinations. This means that the same standards apply to all examination certificates, ensuring mobility of qualified personnel.
