Vocational training: Inter-company training

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Supra-company apprenticeship training (ÜLU) or supra-company training (ÜLA) refers to parts of the training that are used by trainees from different companies because the individual companies cannot provide these parts of the training themselves. Both the Vocational Training Act (BBiG) and the Crafts Regulation Act (HwO) provide for parts of vocational training to be carried out in suitable facilities outside the training centers if and to the extent required by the vocational training. Inter-company training is an integral part of vocational training in Germany.

The demands on training companies, trainers and trainees are constantly increasing, as rapid technical developments are making the subject matter more extensive and more complicated. Small and medium-sized companies in particular are therefore no longer able to impart all the specialist knowledge and technical and technological skills required by the job profile. Inter-company training supplements company-based apprenticeships and thus relieves the burden on companies.

The inter-company apprenticeship training courses are occupation-specific, practical courses. They are usually held in the training centers of the craft organizations. The costs are borne by the training companies themselves and reduced by subsidies from the state and federal government.
