This brochure informs readers about Germany’s unique process for developing initial vocational training regulations. These regulations are the basis for initial vocational education and training within the dual system (a company-based apprenticeship combined with part-time vocational school) in which many young people in Germany gain their first vocational qualifications.
The great advantage of this process is that its outcomes are fully accepted by all parties involved in initial vocational training practice, since the parties concerned – employers’ organisations on behalf of the companies and trade unions on behalf of employees – are fully involved in all important decisions about the content, objectives, duration, and requirements of initial vocational training.
