Abstract

Firms as Gatekeepers

In Germany, the opportunities of low skilled young people are predominantly structured by the dual apprenticeship system. Consequently, firms as gatekeepers play a central role. Drawing on information from the ’Increase Completion Rates – Improve Career Prospects", or ’Abschlussquote erhöhen – Berufsfähigkeit steigern" (AQB), and ’Deeper Career Orientation and Work Experience", or ’Vertiefte Berufsorientierung und Praxiserfahrung" (VBoP), databases, this article analyses how workplace recruitment processes are structured. The factors that influence, firstly, firms' assessment of young people's aptitude for training and, secondly, the transition to training are analysed. It is shown that marks in Maths and German as well as socio-economic characteristics, such as sex or migrant background do not influence both aspects. In contrast, the educational background of the family of the low skilled youngsters has a significant influence.
