In the spotlight
Vocational training in Germany
The German system of dual vocational training is known internationally and is regarded as a model. Nevertheless, training places in German companies remain unfilled. Attracting trainees from abroad is therefore one way of counteracting this development. At the same time, vocational training offers those from abroad who are interested in training a longer-term career perspective in Germany.
What do you do once you have completed your studies in Germany? Or if you have come to Germany to look for work or travelled there on a 3-month working visa? Our expert from the Essen immigration office provides you with reliable information on how you can extend your visa or residence permit in these cases.
Thuringia shares its experience on recruiting apprentices from abroad
Training young people helps companies obtain the skilled labour they need. The consequences of demographic change are already having a visible impact on the training market. This means that the business community needs to find new ways to attract skilled labour. The German Land of Thuringia, for example, has launched a funding programme that has enabled local companies hire apprentices from Vietnam.
