A high demand for training positions and too few positions is forcing the government to take targeted action to promote vocational education and training. A significant portion of training positions are partially or completely subsidised at present by public funding. It is difficult to obtain an overview of promotional funding, however, due to the plethora of funding agencies and promotional programmes. A research project carried out by the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) entitled "Public Promotion of In-company Training Measures" in the dual system sheds light on the scope, structure and development of public promotion of training over the period 1997-2001.
