A good education is the most important prerequisite for a successful start into professional life. In order to find a job in Germany, it is important to have completed vocational training or a course of study.
Vocational training takes two to three years and usually takes place in the so-called dual system. This means that practical in-company training is combined with theoretical learning phases at a school. Some training, for example in the nursing field, is only offered in schools. Access to vocational training generally requires at least a lower secondary school leaving certificate.
There are around 400 occupations in Germany that require vocational training. The career counselling service of the Federal Employment Agency advises young people and young adults on their career choices. It offers a lot of information about the different occupations, the activities and the qualifications required for them. There are employment agencies all over Germany.
