Vocational training: Monitoring training preparation

In principle, the chambers are responsible for supervising vocational training preparation.

Vocational training preparation is part of vocational training. It serves the goal of introducing vocational training in a recognised training occupation by imparting vocational foundations.

For companies that want to provide training, the bodies responsible for training, for example the chambers (Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), Chamber of Crafts (HWK)), are the first points of contact. These decide, for example.B. on the suitability for the training company and supervise the vocational training preparation, the vocational training and the vocational retraining. The implementation of these measures will be encouraged by providing advice to those involved in vocational training. The competent authority must appoint consultants for this purpose.
Trainers, retrainees and providers of training preparation measures are obliged, upon request, to provide the information and documents necessary for monitoring. In addition, visits to the training centres must be permitted.

A company is suitable as a training company if it is suitable for vocational training in terms of type and institution and the number of trainees is proportionate to the number of skilled workers employed.

If a company does not have the opportunity to provide the trainee with all the professional skills required for his training, he can join forces with one or more other training companies to form a training network. Furthermore, it is possible to place the training areas of training that cannot be offered in one's own company outside the training centre (e.B. in inter-company training centres).


According to §§ 68ff. BBiG, people with learning disabilities or socially disadvantaged persons whose level of development does not yet allow a successful training in a recognized training occupation to be expected must be accompanied by comprehensive socio-pedagogical support and support during vocational training preparation. The training preparation must meet the specific requirements of these trainees in terms of content, type, objective and duration.

The post to be trained must notify the competent authority in writing of the implementation of training preparation measures before they begin.

§§ 27ff., 32, 68, 71, 76 Berufsbildungsgesetz (BBiG).
