Terms & Conditions
Fairly yes. There are more than 500.000 open positions each year with only about 500.000 applicants. Many positions remain unfilled each year, especially in the area of Agriculture, handcrafts, nursing, IT, and other services. So foreigners do have very good chances in getting a position.
Any foreigner regardless of the age, speaking German on level B1 at least and having finished 12 years school education.
Foreigners from all countries including Bangladesh are eligible to apply for a vocational training in Germany. The typical age for vocational training in Germany is up to 30 years, mostly between 16 and 25 years. However one might apply even with higher ages. Especially in the nursing training higher ages are more often to be found.
The vocational training takes usually between 2 and 4 years. You can select from short apprenticeships and longer ones. You will learn your profession to 50% within the company by practical work and to 50% in a special vocational school. Lessons will be held in German only – therefore you need German skills on level B1 of the GER. During the training in Europe (Germany), you will be employed by a German company with a German contract providing the same rights and obligations as for German nationals.
With a vocational training in Germany, foreign applicants receive a German qualification as a skilled worker. Currently and for the foreseeable future there is a very high demand for skilled workers in Germany as in all Europe. Although there is no ‘guarantee’ for a job after the vocational training: chances are really high that you may continue to work in the company of your vocational training without limitation in time. This also offers foreigners the perspective for living in Germany legally.
The typical gross salary rages between 800 and 1,200 Euros per month gross (885 to 1,350 US$ per month). The amount of this monthly allowance depends to a large extent on your employer, the region of employment in Germany, and your curriculum vitae. Employers often offer additional support such as free tickets or financial support for your accommodation. Having successfully finished the vocational training you might expect a monthly salary of about 2,400 to 3,500 Euros gross working in your profession (2,650 to 3,850 US$), again depending on several factors.
No. You need German B1 level before you can start.
As a rule, a certificate as ‘skilled worker’ is awarded as degree. This degree offers excellent career opportunities in Germany and worldwide. The skilled worker qualification enables you to apply for a permanent residence permit in Germany, provided that some other requirements are met.
There is no maximum age limit by law. In some professions – e.g. nursing care – applicants over 40 years of age are not rare. However, you should note that as a foreigner you will learn at the vocational school together with German students who are usually between 16 and 25 years old.
No, the vocational training system in Germany does not require any experience when you start the training. You will learn everything you need to know step by step during the training.
You might start to learn German online or offline at German Language Institute.
In Germany a vocational training has a much higher image than in other countries. This comes firstly due to the high demand of workers in the blue collar professions – which stays in connection with good salary. The image of vocational training in Germany has risen in the recent years even more. This comes by new options for further training and studies after the vocational training, resulting even in options to start studies at university.
A foreign school-leaving certificate of 12th grade or higher (usually a High-school) is sufficient to start an apprenticeship in Germany. For technical professions, you should have good grades in mathematics as well as computer skills. Besides the mentioned German skills no other criteria must be met.
You must speak German at least at level B1 at the beginning of the training. However you can apply already when you have a A2 command of German. For nursing care training you will need B2 level of German.
