The “Alliance for Vocational and Further Training” launches the “Summer of Vocational Training”

Every year, government ministries, public authorities, businesses and trade unions join forces to promote vocational training in Germany with the “Summer of Vocational Training”.

02 May 2024 | Press release no.18

Deciding on a career requires both detailed information and role models. For this reason, this summer’s events are aimed at young people, parents and businesses. From the beginning of May to the end of October 2024, the alliance partners will jointly provide information about embarking on an initial vocational qualification on social media platforms and at numerous events at the federal, state and regional levels.

Vocational training takes you further

This summer’s focus is on highlighting the variety, appeal and career opportunities offered by dual vocational training, and on providing information about vocational training positions and apprenticeships, working life, the funding and financial support available for vocational training and finding a job after your training is over.

Training opens opportunities

Dual vocational training offers young people a variety of interesting and challenging occupations and gives them the opportunity to actively shape their future, as a freelancer, for example. At the same time it is a central pillar for securing skilled staff. Now more than ever, Germany needs well-trained workers to deal with the transformation which is being triggered by challenges such as climate change, demographics and digitalisation.
