Professional training in Germany

Most professions in Germany are learned through school-based training. Work experience is gained through internships in companies.

The duration of training is not uniform and varies between two and three and a half years, depending on the occupation and previous knowledge. Before the training begins, a contract is concluded between the trainee and the company providing the training, which regulates the duration of the training, the content and objectives of the training and the salary.

Many occupations are now also learned within the framework of dual training. The dual training system, with its mix of practical work experience in companies and the teaching of specialist theoretical knowledge at vocational school, enjoys very high recognition among companies.

In the case of dual vocational training, training places are allocated directly by the companies, so that interested persons must apply directly to the company. Apprenticeships usually start in August or September, but companies usually start looking for suitable applicants a year in advance. You can find vacancies in daily newspapers, on the companies’ homepages or on Training and apprenticeship databases.
