Service Description

If you would like to do an apprenticeship and you need special support or assistance due to your disabilities, you can do the apprenticeship in companies or institutions that are equipped to meet your special needs.

If you require special assistance with vocational training due to physical, mental, sensory or learning impairments, you can obtain a vocational qualification in a recognized occupation with rehabilitation-specific training. This can also be a specialist traineeship for people with disabilities. You will complete your training in accordance with the currently valid training regulations or training regulations and their training framework plans.

You can then complete your training either

  • in the company with the support of an educational institution (in-company training)
  • or directly in an educational institution
  • or in a vocational rehabilitation facility

If the employment agency is your responsible rehabilitation provider, it will cover the costs.

The funding period covers the duration of the training, which is usually 2 to 3 years. If you have to repeat examinations and your training period is extended as a result, the funding will also be extended.

In-company training

If you are completing in-company training, you and your training company can receive support. You will be supported in

  • get a company-based training place,
  • successfully complete your training with needs-based socio-educational and sometimes psychological support and
  • subsequently obtain employment on the labor market.

An educational institution will accompany you throughout the entire training period with teaching, support and advice services and will help you with problems at vocational school and in the company. Your training company will also receive support services from your educational institution. You conclude the training contract with the company and receive a training allowance from the training company. You are also entitled to a transitional allowance or training allowance. However, your training allowance will be deducted from this. The costs for support from the training institution are paid by the Employment Agency.

External training

If it is not possible for you to train in a company, you can do your training at an educational institution or in a vocational rehabilitation facility that is set up to meet the special needs of young people with disabilities (external training). Depending on the target group and facilities, the providers have their own training workshops, offices and companies with workplaces designed for the disabled and provide educational and sometimes psychological support. Vocational rehabilitation facilities also offer residential and leisure facilities and are available for occupational health issues.

The aim is for you to complete as much practical training as possible in a training-authorized cooperation company in your area. At the same time, you will usually attend the local vocational school. You conclude the training contract with your educational institution. They will support you throughout the entire training period with teaching, support and advice, coordinate the course of your training and help you with problems at the vocational school and company.

You set your training goal in consultation with your advisor at the employment agency. At the end of the training period, you will take your examination at the relevant chamber. Your educational institution or vocational rehabilitation facility will prepare you for this and also help you to cope with learning stress and exam anxiety. You will not receive a training allowance during your training. However, you are entitled to either transitional allowance or training allowance and you are covered by social insurance. The entire training costs are paid by the employment agency.

Whether you can take part in rehabilitation-specific training - supported by a company or outside the company - depends, among other things, on

  • whether the measure is suitable for you and your specific case in order to increase your chances of successfully completing training,
  • what your personal inclinations are and how these can be useful in your professional life,
  • which activities you would like to pursue and

how the training and job market is currently developing.
