Think dual training! Harnessing potential – securing skilled labour
The dual system of vocational training is Germany’s most successful and most important instrument for securing skilled labour. Over half of young people begin training in one of the some 330 officially classified occupations. Embarking on a professional career in this way provides a high degree of protection from unemployment. Moreover, Germany’s dual system is acclaimed and imitated in many other countries across the world. In March 2014, youth unemployment in Germany was just 5.9 per cent (Berlin: 11.4 per cent), far below the European rate of 22.8 per cent. Even so, the dual system of vocational training needs to be additionally strengthened so that career development starting with the dual system attains the same status as higher education. Last year, businesses in CCI Berlin and Berlin Chamber of Skilled Crafts signed a total of 13,601 new apprenticeship agreements. And in September 2013, the Federal Employment Agency reported that fewer youngsters had failed to find a trainee position than in the previous year. However, one continuing problem is that young people still know too little about the world of work and spend too much time on school-based training, leaving employers short of apprentices. In fact, according to a survey by CCI Berlin, in 2013 around 2,200 apprenticeships in CCI companies were not filled – twice as many as in 2012. And businesses in the skilled crafts sector suffered from a similar shortage. Help can be provided by early career guidance such as the School Company Partnership and Little Scientists’ House projects. Moreover, in spring 2014, politicians rightly paved the way for the Youth Careers Agency, which will give better advice and support to young people on the tran-

sition from school to work. In 2014, another new service has been launched by the private sector with funding from the Government of the Land of Berlin. The Advice on Joined Training in the Dual-System is a joint project by CCI Berlin, Berlin Chamber of Skilled Crafts, Berlin Association of the Liberal Professions, the Confederation of Business Associations in Berlin–Brandenburg (UVB), and the Senate Department of Labour, Integration and Women’s Issues, and is intended to assist small and medium-sized businesses in regard to joined vocational trainings. Vocational further training is also an effective way to counter the skills shortage. For years, large numbers of people have successfully completed further training programmes at CCI Berlin and Berlin Chamber of Skilled Crafts. Once again, this brochure outlines the achievements of all those involved in vocational training thanks to the particular dedication shown by Berlin’s employers. We hope you find it interesting!

Advice on joined training in the dual-system in Berlin

Verbundberatung
Duale Berufsausbildung in Berlin

Who can benefit from this service?
• Small and medium-sized businesses – both long-standing firms and start-ups • Employers in industry and the skilled trades, retail, hotels and hospitality, the digital economy, the creative and media industries, healthcare, the service sector, and the liberal professions

When can firms profit from this service?
• If training is carried out in collaboration with another company

Advice on joined training in the dual-system

Joined training helps secure skilled labour if not all the knowledge and practical skills required under the joined training regulations for a particular occupation can be covered by one company alone. Joined training can also help employers recruit more suitable candidates, who are more likely to apply if they can acquire supplementary professional skills and knowledge from a partner company.

In what respects do we support employers?
• • • • Finding suitable partner firms based on the specifications of the respective training regulations Drafting partnership agreements between training companies Clarifying issues arising during training Applying for financial support

We also put employers in touch with the right people who can:
• Help them find suitable trainees • Provide supplementary assistance alongside training • Help solve critical situations arising during training
