Further information about general questions concerning vocational training
In Germany, the vocational training is mostly a dual programme of training and education. That means, during your vocational training you spend three to four days a week in the apprenticing company. The remaining one or two days, you get the theoretical founding for your future job in the vocational school. Thus, you can apply and increase the knowledge you got in the vocational school to the apprenticing company in practice and receive practical skills.
You have to apply for a dual programme to your prospective apprenticing company. The programme starts as a rule in August or September every year. During your vocational training, you get a salary as training allowance from your apprenticing company.
You find further information in the bilingual "Welcome to Germany" Portal for foreign skilled employees "Make it in Germany".
