Occupational advancement with VET—men at a clear advantage
Around eleven percent of skilled workers in Germany who have completed dual VET carry out higher level tasks for which a higher qualification is typically required. Men have a clear advantage over women, as the new issue of BIBB REPORT shows.
BIBB publishes its 2018 ranking list for training occupations
Impressive start: Around 1,300 training contracts have been concluded in 2018 in the new training occupation of “management assistant in e-commerce”. With just over 15,000 new contracts the occupation of information technology specialist made it position 7 in the Top 10.
Development of training allowances in 2018: Higher increases again
In 2018, training allowances based on collective wage agreements increased across Germany by an average of 3.7%. The increase was thus stronger than in 2017 (2.6%). Throughout Germany, the average training allowance was €908 gross per month. This is shown by a BIBB analysis.
The 2035 labour market: Population growth with low unemployment
An increase in the population, hostorically low unemployment and shortages of skilled workers in specific occupations – especially in health care occupations – will characterise the labour market in Germany in 2035. This is shown by current projections by BIBB and IAB.
BIBB analysis of the training market development in 2018
More company-based training places on offer, more newly concluded training contracts, but also more unfilled training positions as well as an increase of men and decrease of women applying for trining positions – the are the results of the BIBB analysis of the training market development in 2018.
BIBB presents study on minimum training remuneration from the perspective of companies
The BIBB has used a data-based simulation to investigate the issue of which businesses would be affected by a minimum training remuneration and how high the anticipated cost increase might be for companies. Result: Small businesses face particular challenges.
More refugees in dual VET – Skilled trades report significant growth
There has been a sharp rise in the number of foreign trainees who are citizens of one of the most common non-European asylum countries of origin. Significant growth has been reported by the skilled trades. These are the findings from a special analysis by BIBB.
BIBB Data Report to accompany the 2019 Report on VET is published
Demand for training places by young people and young adults and the number of training places offered by companies both rose once again in 2018. Nevertheless, recruitment problems on the training market exacerbated further. These are the main outcomes of the 2019 BIBB Data Report.
The development of the German VET system and more specifically of the dual system relies on regular data collection. The Data Report of the BIBB is a selection of most relevant and actual data on the German VET system.
Even if an occupation reflects the activities in which they are interested, many young people will still tend to drop it during the career choice process if insufficient social recognition appears to be on offer. This is the main outcome to emerge from a study conducted by the BIBB.
In its capacity as a departmental research institution of the Federal Government, BIBB has comprehensive VET data records at its disposal. This data is made available outside BIBB via the Research Data Centre.
