The third European survey on continuing vocational training in enterprises (Continuing Vocational Training Survey, CVTS3) shows that continuing vocational training is stagnating in Germany and is even on the decline in some cases. Compared to other European countries, Germany continues to place only in midfield. The Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) conducted a supplementary national survey to CVTS3 in early 2008. This survey dealt with additional questions regarding qualitative aspects of continuing vocational training and was conducted on behalf of and with funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The supplementary national survey to CVTS3 provides findings on the linking of initial vocational training and continuing vocational training in enterprises, on the relationship between the different forms of learning used in continuing vocational training in enterprises and the different types of competences employees have, and on learning in atypical employee groups and measures to foster older employees.
