Abstract:

This paper argues that Germany’s widely regarded dual system of vocational education and training has undergone significant change since the 1970s. While the framework of formal institutions has largely stayed intact, significant processes of change take place beneath the surface. In particular, instead of proceeding directly from school to training to employment, young people increasingly have to complete various educational loops and there are indication that a significant minority completely fails to get access to training and employment. The factors contributing to change are structural changes in the economy (from manufacturing to services) and the erosion of the dual sector model of training, where the crafts sector supplied semi-skilled labour for industrial firms. The paper concludes with an attempt to capture the process conceptually. It is argued that the German case is an example of liberalization through an increased involvement of the state.
