BIBB REPORT 01/07 - The situation of unplaced applicants from previous years in Germany
Findings from the 2006 BA/BIBB Vocational Training Applicant Survey conducted by the Federal Employment Agency and the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training
The share of unplaced training place applicants from previous years out of all training place applicants has grown steadily in recent years. However, this group in particular has considerable difficulties finding a training place. Although unplaced applicants from previous years have equally good marks to show as applicants who are 'first-year' training place seekers, the former group's chances of actually landing a training place are smaller. The chances of finding a training place also diminish the longer an unplaced applicant from previous years has been looking for a training place. Nevertheless, there are factors that can make it easier for such individuals to get started with vocational training. Completing higher levels of secondary school, earning good marks and finishing an introductory training programme increase their chances of being accepted for vocational training.
