Abstract

Training Modules as Part of Vocational Preparation – a better Chance for Disadvantaged Young People?

Recently, training modules both as part of apprenticeship training and pre-training courses have gained in attractiveness. This is especially the case when they have been used to bridge the ’school to work" transition of disadvantaged youth. By participating in these courses, members of this group have, supposedly and gradually, been able to build up vocational qualifications to a recognized level, so that they can improve their labour-market opportunities. In the case of pre-training courses (here BvB) a special type of modular training (so called ’Qualifizierungsbausteine" or ’qualification building blocks") was implemented to improve the chances of entering apprenticeship training. However, using current survey data and multivariate analysis techniques no significant effect of these modules on the entry probability into apprenticeship training could be identified. For the general discussion on modularization, therefore, it can be deduced that a lack of acceptance of training module by firms might work as a fundamental hurdle.
