What is an Ausbildung in Germany?
The Ausbildung also known as the dual education system, is a distinctive feature of the German education system. It combines practical, on-the-job training in a company with theoretical education in a Berufsschule (vocational school). This concept has been highly successful in preparing young people for a wide range of careers and has contributed significantly to Germany’s strong economy and low youth unemployment rates.
How will you benefit from an Ausbildung in Germany?
How long will your Ausbildung in Germany take?
The duration of your Ausbildung can vary depending on the specific profession and the level of qualification being pursued. However, there are some general guidelines:
Three Years: A typical vocational Ausbildung in Germany lasts for three years. This duration is common for many skilled trades and professions, including areas like electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and industrial mechanics.
Three and a Half Years: Some Ausbildung programs extend to three and a half years. This longer duration often applies to professions that require a higher level of skill and specialization, such as mechatronics technicians or dental technicians.
Shorter Programs: In some cases, shorter Ausbildung programs of one to two years are available. These programs are usually designed for professions with less complex skill requirements, like office administrators, retail salespeople, or childcare workers.
Some programs may offer the option to shorten the Ausbildung through recognition of prior qualifications or through accelerated learning paths.
