Training Opportunities With the Ausbildungsförderung der Hamburger Wirtschaft e.V.

If you have not yet found an apprenticeship, you might benefit from an introductory qualification (‘Einstiegsqualifizierung’; EQ/EQ-M).

The Ausbildungsförderung der Hamburger Wirtschaft e.V. is a Hamburg-based economic association for training support, which provides counselling on finding a training placement and obtaining introductory qualifications. An introductory qualification comprises 4 to 12 months of long-term internship, including remuneration and social security. The internship is relevant to most dual vocational trainings. The aim of the internship is to be offered an apprenticeship.
