BIBB Board recommends adopting new model examination regulations for the further training field
28/2008 | Bonn, 02.07.2008
At its meeting held in Bonn on 27 June 2008, the Board of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) unanimously approved a recommendation on the adoption of new model examination regulations for the further training field. This recommendation applies to the areas covered by the the Vocational Training Act (Section 56 in conjunction with Section 47 of the Vocational Training Act) and the Crafts Code (Section 42 in conjunction with Section 38 of the Crafts Code).
The model examination regulations were developed as a guideline for examination committees that are set up by relevant bodies or chambers of crafts and trades. These directions are intended - as in the case of the final examination and the journeyman's examination - to ensure that examination regulations are comparable nationwide in the further training field as well. Standardized provisions are to apply, for example, to admission to examinations, grading, certificates and violations of the examination regulations. The BIBB Board adopted similar model examination regulations for final examinations and journeyman's examinations in March 2007.
Under German law, the BIBB Board has the task of advising the German government on fundamental issues involving vocational education and training. Representation on the Board of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training is equally divided between labour, management, Germany's federal states and the federal government.
The full German text of the BIBB Board's recommendations on the model examination regulations for the further training field:
- Recommendation regarding the model examination regulations for further training examinations under Section 56 (1) in conjunction with Section 47 (1) of the Vocational Training Act
- Recommendation regarding the model examination regulations for further training examinations under Section 42 c (1) in conjunction with Section 38 of the Crafts Code
