Participate in a measure that prepares young people with disabilities for training.


The rehab-specific vocational preparation training measure (BvB) supports young people with disabilities who are quite suitable for a training position, but who are not (yet) able to meet the general requirements due to their disabilities. The aim is to prepare you for training and to help you find a suitable training occupation. This can also be a specialized apprenticeship for people with disabilities. If it becomes apparent during the measure that it is not possible for you to take up vocational training for reasons that lie within your person, you can also be supported in the further course with the aim of taking up employment.

At the end of the training measure, you should have found answers to these questions: Where do my talents lie? What kind of training do I want? Which profession can I imagine?

The contents include

  • Help with career orientation and career choice,
  • imparting knowledge and skills for starting an apprenticeship,
  • the opportunity to obtain a secondary school leaving certificate at a later date,
  • Internships in various occupational fields and companies,
  • job application training,
  • help in finding training and, if necessary, jobs.

You can take a rehabilitation-specific vocational preparation course at an educational institution or in a vocational rehabilitation facility that is geared to the special needs of young people with disabilities. Depending on the target group and equipment, the providers have their own training workshops, offices and companies with workplaces designed for the disabled and provide you with pedagogical and, in some cases, psychological support. Vocational rehabilitation facilities also offer residential and recreational opportunities and are available to answer occupational health questions.

If the employment agency is your responsible rehabilitation agency, it will assume the costs.

You will receive financial support in the form of a transitional allowance or training allowance, and you will be covered by social insurance.

Note for customers who receive benefits from the Jobcenter (Bürgergeld):

If you participate in a rehab-specific vocational preparation training measure, you will receive an additional Bürgergeld bonus of EUR 75.00 per month from 01.07.2023. You do not have to submit your own application for this.

Whether you can take part in a rehab-specific vocational preparation training measure depends on, among other things,

  • whether the measure is suitable for you and your specific case in order to increase your chances of taking up vocational training,
  • what your personal inclinations are and how they can be useful in your professional life,
  • which activities you would like to pursue, and
  • how the training and labor market is currently developing.

The rehab-specific BvB usually starts at the beginning of the training year in September and usually lasts up to 12 months. However, you can also start at a different time. Under certain conditions, an extension up to a total duration of 24 months is possible.

  • They are no longer of school age.
  • You have
    • a school leaving certificate and are looking for a training place or
    • do not have a school leaving certificate and would like to catch up on a secondary school leaving certificate or equivalent, or
    • you have lost your training position and would like to reorient yourself professionally.
  • You have a disability and your rehabilitation agency is the Federal Employment Agency.
  • Your prospects of participating in working life are not only temporarily significantly reduced due to the nature or severity of your disability.
    • Or: You are threatened with a disability with the same occupational consequences.
  • Due to the nature and severity of your disabilities, the general statutory benefits to promote your participation in working life are not sufficient.
  • You are willing to undergo vocational training or other vocational integration.
  • You can be expected to achieve the goal of the measure.
  • First of all, you will need your last school report and, if applicable, internship reports.
  • If you have not graduated from high school but have completed compulsory education, you will need this proof.
  • When you contact your advisor, please ask what other documents you need.

Processing usually takes several weeks. After approval of the service, the measure should begin as soon as possible in coordination with the provider.

Appeal to the employment agency that issued the decision. Further information on how to file an appeal can be found in the respective notice.
