If one compares unemployment among youth in Austria or Germany with the CEE countries, one can see how important apprenticeship training is”, said Petra Mathi-Kogelnik, the responsible managing director of human resources for dm Austria.

In contrast to the domestic apprenticeship training to become a druggist, where young people attend 1,440 hours in a vocational school, the pilot project will make do with 408 hours of classes, which can be bundled. “The basics are not included here, because one can take certain skills for granted in adult employees, for example commercial arithmetic”, she added. 

The 80 participants in the first round of training come from nine countries, namely Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia.

“It would be great if we could take the first step towards establishing the dual educational system in these countries. I believe that other professions would also do the same”, Mathi-Kogelnik concluded.
