Definition - what is training?

Everyone is talking about continuing education. However, finding the right education is like the search for the famous needle in a haystack, because the German training landscape is more than confusing: the lack of legal regulations and binding standards make it difficult to compare the different offers.

Continuing education is worthwhile!

The acceptance of the often completed education for a lot of money and time spent on the job market is often uncertain. And it is not without reason that people willing to follow up on training often ask themselves: is education going to get me to the desired goal?

The good news is: continuing education is worthwhile. Because lifelong learning secures the advance in the profession in the long term. And: Good further education does not necessarily have to be expensive, as there are numerous funding and funding options.

However, it is crucial that you find the appropriate training for yourself. This not only means that content and completion are in line with the intended career goal and recognized by potential employers and employers, but also that the goal is reasonably proportionate to the time and expense involved.

Background knowledge necessary!

However, it is not always easy to bring all these requirements into line with one another, but requires a certain background knowledge: firstly, you must know where to look for the appropriate training and financing.

On the other hand, you should know the criteria that should be taken into account when choosing the appropriate training. And you should know what alternative ways you have to educate yourself.

How to make a difference?

Are there any further developments like sand at sea? How are the various offers actually defined, articulated, differentiated?

An attempt of classification - by the German Education Council and the Federal Institute for Vocational Training.

The German Education Council has defined 1970 the overall complex of continuing education as

“Continuation or resumption of organized learning after the completion of a differently extended first training phase ... The end of the first training phase and thus the start of possible further training is usually characterized by the entry into full employment ... training ”.

The general term “further education” divides three types of educational offers:

  • The general training: includes all continuing education programs which are not directly related to the profession. In practice, it is not always easy to distinguish between continuing vocational training, as key qualifications such as Teamwork, Creativity or media literacy are becoming more and more important at work. Foreign languages ​​serve the general personality as well as the better communication in the occupation. However, general education also includes political and cultural further education.
  • The University education: has the aim to keep the knowledge of the participants up-to-date or to expand according to the university degree, as do the construction studies. Continuing training at universities, however, is also open to professionals who do not have undergraduate degrees, who would now like to learn scientific work.
  • The continuing Professional Education, the classic field for courses to deepen or supplement professional knowledge is what is commonly understood as continuing education. And this professional development can even be financially supported by employers or the state. in the Vocational Training Act (BBiG) a distinction is made between training and retraining: A training is used to maintain or expand the professional knowledge and skills of employees or unemployed, or to adapt them to the current level of knowledge in a profession. On the other hand, retraining should enable a new occupational activity. The Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) offers an overview of possible continuing education professions.
