Has your job changed

Inquiry: Why are apprenticeships actually changing?

In the last 14 years, 215 apprenticeships have been modernized and 79 completely new ones have been added. Two things are primarily responsible for these changes in the professional world: globalization and climate change. Globalization makes it increasingly possible to work with partners all over the world, even in different time zones. The international contact is very seldom personal, which is why you have to be well versed in the technology that is constantly emerging during your training. Due to climate change, many people have increased environmental awareness. Electric cars, energy-saving houses and the like are being built. This creates new or modernized professions.

There are professions for which only the examination regulations change. Other professions, on the other hand, emerge from scratch or are made up of several similar professions. Most of the changes are new, different or fewer subjects that you can choose as a trainee. Since many companies cannot offer all subjects or some subjects are simply out of date, new subjects emerge, others simply disappear.

As of August 1, 2016, eight new professions will be launched:

To see what exactly has changed in the professions listed, you can read the text "New professions" in our theme world.

Due to the innovations in the professions, training in Germany should remain competitive. Every fourth company even considers it necessary that completely new apprenticeships have to be created due to increasing digitalization. Most training regulations, however, allow adjustments. If that is not enough, the profession will be modernized. Fundamentally, the training courses are becoming more complex. Machines often do the work for you, but they must also be able to be operated. For you, this means lifelong learning, as both technology and machines will continue to develop.
