Training and studies in two countries
The Fehmarnbelt region will give young people in Denmark and Germany many cross-border educational opportunities.
Two countries – one educationA German Act on Vocational Education (Berufsbildungsgesetz) from 2005 recognises educational courses abroad as an equally important part of vocational training. This means that students and apprentices can spend up to a quarter of their education or apprenticeship abroad. Over the past years, Europe has grown ever closer and those involved in the Danish and German labour markets are working to ensure that students studying for professional qualifications can take extended periods of training abroad.
The Job Centre in Lübeck, the Chamber of Skilled Crafts in Lübeck and the Chamber of Commerce of Lübeck, in partnership with the Danish Centre for Vocational Education Lolland Falster (CELF), are enabling students and apprentices from the Fehmarnbelt region to pursue Danish-German vocational training with participating companies. The first exchange programme between students from Lolland and East Holstein took place in 2012.See CELF's video on training abroad here.
