Harnessing the full potential!
The private sector’s training efforts continue unabated. Although the number of school leavers has declined by 22 per cent over the past seven years, Berlin Chamber of Industry and Commerce and Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin companies have actually raised the volume of training provided by about 2 per cent. Last year saw a slight increase once again, with employers signing a total of 12,917 new apprenticeship agreements, over a 100 more than in 2011. What’s more, if all the apprentice positions available had been taken up, this figure would have been even higher. At the Last Minute Exchange in 2012, employers had 2,000 apprenticeships on offer. In the end, however, the majority remained unclaimed owing to the low demand for the types of training professions available. One key challenge is therefore to match apprenticeships to young people‘s interests so that training opportunities can be found for all applicants, whatever their ability. Our endeavours to reduce this mismatch start in preschool and primary school. Of the 1,977 nursery schools in Berlin, 862 are already involved in the “Litte scientists“ project launched by CCI Berlin. Meanwhile, the Berlin “School company partnership“ project which is run by the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin encourages partnerships between the skilled crafts and primary schools. Moreover, all 120 secondary schools in Berlin have signed partnering agreements with companies, as have about a third of the city’s 102 grammar schools. Whereas previously young people only knew about a very few occupations, these partnerships now enable them to find out about the many different jobs throughout the economy. One excellent way of enabling young people with limited prospects to obtain an apprenticeship is entry-level vocational qualification (EQ). In 2012, 580 EQ places were made available by CCI Berlin and skilled crafts companies. The growth in new apprenticeships last year was buoyed by the Vocational Training Festival, at which some 10,000 school students found out about training and study opportunities. This year, we aim to help all those seeking training before the new academic year starts in September 2013. One positive aspect for the skilled crafts is the continued increase in the proportion of apprentices who have already achieved the Abitur (Germany’s school-leaving qualification granting access to higher education), which in Berlin has now reached 17.8 per cent, eclipsing the rest of Germany. This development underlines that a career based on an apprenticeship is now seriously regarded as an alternative to university education. The fact that two separate intakes took the Abitur at the same time last year owing to school attendance being shortened by a year did not boost the number of new apprentices with university entrance qualifications being taken on by CCI Berlin member companies and is unlikely to do so this year. On the other hand, the share of those who turned down higher education in favour of an apprenticeship is already high at over 35 per cent. Apart from apprenticeships, advanced vocational training is an effective way to counter the shortage of skilled workers. The most popular vocational training opportunities develop participants into master craftsmen, controllers or business managers. This opens up new career prospects for those who pass this training and safeguards their employability. Businesses’ interest in seeing their own instructors undergo additional training has increased. Whereas in 2005, 954 instructors from companies in Berlin sat an examination carried out under the AEVO instructor aptitude regulations, by 2012 this figure had almost tripled to 2,742. This upsurge shows how important companies view in-house training as a method of ensuring they have the skilled workers they need. Since the BQFG Professional Qualifications Assessment Act has entered into force in April 2012, about 1,750 consultations have been held by CCI Berlin and the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin with over 1,000 people keen to have their foreign qualifications recognized. The rulings issued by IHK FOSA (Foreign Skills Approval) and the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin on the degree of equivalence with corresponding German occupations enable applicants to make better use of their foreign-acquired qualifications in Berlin. This also signals that foreign skilled workers are welcome in Berlin. Berlin’s attractiveness to students is steadily rising. In the 2012/13 winter semester, the number of students enrolled in higher education in Berlin was 14 per cent higher than in 2009/10. Moreover, 14.9 per cent of people in Berlin have a college degree – more than anywhere else in the country. This brochure illustrates the success of everyone involved in training and education in Berlin thanks to the untiring efforts of its private sector. We hope it proves enlightening to our partners, the business community, the media and everyone else!

2013

Business chambers help employers find apprentices
In 2012 there was a lack of not apprenticeships but suitable applicants. In fact, 2,300 young people still seeking apprenticeships were invited to the last-minute exchange where 2,000 apprenticeships were available, although only 400 people turned up and many employers failed to find any applicants. This underlines how vital professional matching is to harness the full potential for training.

AGE DER T ERUFSB ILDUNG AUSB 2013

Apposite Placement Apposite Placement of Apprentices in Training Companies is a project which focuses on personal contact with SMEs and those in search of an apprenticeship. Advisory and recruitment meetings are held at the Chambers with all school leavers, regardless of whether they have dropped out or attained university entrance qualifications. Meanwhile, CCI Berlin‘s pilot project Your Turn is a fast-track scheme allowing university drop-outs to complete training earlier. „Little scientists“ project CCI Berlin has so far trained about 1,200 nursery school and primary school teachers in areas such as water, air, technology, and research with magnets. In addition to allowing children to explore science and engineering, it improves the learning, social and linguistic abilities of three to ten year olds. The CCI network Young Researchers‘ House has now spread to 580 nursery schools and 60 primary schools in Berlin. In fact it is involved in half of all Berlin’s nursery schools – a figure unequalled anywhere else in Germany Apprenticeship Radar Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin‘ Apprenticeship Radar scheme was launched on 7 May 2012. After downloading the free app, users (including school leavers, parents and teachers) can have apprenticeship vacancies in member companies displayed on their smartphone. Moreover, so far 1,322 young people looking for an apprenticeship have set up profiles of themselves in the app, which is connected to Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin‘ apprenticeship exchange. As a result, last year some 800 apprentice positions in member companies were directly offered to young people. The app also contains a link to the job checker on www.handwerk.de, which is a fun way of finding out about skilled crafts and helps users identify their dream job. Whether they‘re a dab hand at technology or have a creative flair, this online tool enables young people to find careers that match their talents and interests.

Examples of services provided by CCI Berlin and the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin
Tage der Berufsausbildung In 2012, die Tage der Berufsausbildung was held for the first time alongside the „vocatium“ trade fair. „vocatium“ revolves around prearranged meetings between school students and exhibitors regarding training opportunities and degree programmes. School students are prepared for their interviews by the Institute of Talent Development. Before the fair, training experts visit schools in Berlin to explain the types of training available. In 2012, more than 9,500 school students used this opportunity to find out about a total of 220 exhibitors, with 6,000 students attending around 15,000 scheduled meetings. Entry-level vocational qualifications (EQ) The close cooperation between the Regional Directorate of the Federal Employment Agency, CCI Berlin and the Chamber of Skilled Crafts Berlin has paid off. Thanks to the EQ drive, more contracts have been signed by means of entry qualification. Recruitment specialists dispatched by the employment agencies bring applicants and businesses together. Employers can get to know potential trainees better and offer them an apprenticeship at any time. For many young people, EQ opens the door to worklife. The likelihood of being offered a job in the same company after taking an EQ internship there is about 60 per cent throughout Germany.

CCI Berlin is the official body running public examinations for the various levels of advanced training for senior posts. It also offers preparatory courses for many exams associated with advanced training. In addition, there are a number of private training providers preparing candidates for advanced-training examinations.
