Ausbildung

Germany has a special system known as Ausbildung (Apprenticeship in English), which allows students from both EU and non-EU countries to work in German companies, while getting trained for professions in a training institute. Ausbildung is a dual professional training program, a combination of theory and practice. Typical professions include nurses, bakers, merchants, electricians, ambulance workers, doctor assistants, plumbers, masons, painters, hairdressers, as well as gastronomy industry and hotel personnel.

Once accepted to this program as a Trainee or a Trainer by any of the German companies, your training under Ausbildung will be divided into two parts:

  • First, you will be affiliated with a German company where you’ll be on a work placement as an apprentice.
  • Secondly, you’ll be affiliated with a vocational training school, where you will be attending training classes.

Usually, the Ausbildung program lasts for 3-4 years. Time duration usually depends on various factors like which company you work at, which department you are assigned to, which vocational training school you study at. Participants earn salary during the entire program participation time, including time in school and at work.

At the end of the program students pass the exam and receive a certificate that allows them to work only in the specific occupation they were trained for. This certificate is also recognized in many other countries including the EU, so you won’t be limited with Germany.

Requirements

  • Language - Proficiency in the German language is needed. The language used in the vocational training school and your practical training will be in German. Sometimes, it can vary as well because there might be English-speaking people. But in general, the communication will be in German language. So, you need to fulfill the basic requirement level for the German language, i.e. able to prove that your level is at least B1.
  • Education - The minimum academic qualification requirement is a certificate of complete secondary education. Those who have higher level qualifications achieved after the complete secondary education e.g; diploma or degree, also can apply.
  • Age - Some companies and training institutions maintain an eligibility criteria of anybody who is below 35

Documents:

  • CV curriculum vitae - It should include the information about education details, work experience, etc.
  • School certificates, diplomas or degrees
  • Cover letter and work experience letter

 

All certificates mentioned above must be provided in English as well as in German.

Program Fee: 599$

  • Visa application
  • Invitation from vocational school
  • Health insurance
  • Support for accommodation
