Career entry support for pupils


In the case of career entry support, an expert will accompany you on your way to a successful graduation from school to the start of your training.

The expert is the career entry companion who is employed by an education service provider. He or she can assist you with:

  • Your preparation for exams:
    • Setting common goals
    • possibly organize tutoring
  • Career orientation and career choice:
    • Analyze strengths and weaknesses
    • Discuss and discuss interests
    • Attending career-oriented internships or events
  • the search for an apprenticeship:
    • Find offers
    • Writing applications
    • Conduct discussions with employers
  • the start of your training life:
    • Promoting development in the company
    • defuse possible crises
  • the development of your personality
  • the motivation for your tasks.

The career entry support usually begins in the pre-departure class and ends at the latest half a year after you have started vocational training. If vocational training does not work out directly, your career entry support ends no later than 24 months after you have completed general school.

Ask your teachers if your school offers career entry support. Or preferably ask your career counsellor at the Employment Agency in person.

There you can also indicate that you would like to participate in the career entry support.

Your teachers can also draw your attention to this offer.

  • You and your legal guardians or your legal representative must agree that you want to participate in the career entry support and also agree to an exchange of data between the school and the Employment Agency. For this purpose, you and your legal guardian or your legal representative must sign a declaration of consent for the transfer of the necessary data. This involves an exchange of information on:
    • your school grades,
    • your knowledge of school subjects,
    • your learning and working behaviour and, if necessary,
    • Your results from the potential analysis.
  • In a conversation between your teacher, the career counsellor of the Employment Agency responsible for you and, if applicable, the school social work, it will be clarified whether you meet the requirements for participation in the career entry support.
  • The discussion participants clarify whether and what should be specifically promoted by the career entry support and what exactly can be achieved (setting common goals).
  • If it is determined during the interview that you can be supported by the career entry support, you must complete a registration and participant questionnaire.
  • The further procedure will be coordinated together with you.

You attend a general education school that offers career entry support and meet the following conditions:

  • You need support to achieve your school leaving certificate or
  • You need support to make your transition to vocational training and
  • They are usually in the penultimate school year and
  • You and your parents agree to participate in career entry support.

The documents required for the initial interview will be communicated or handed over to you by your teacher or by the school social workers or by your career counsellor to the Employment Agency.

These include, for example,

  • a curriculum vitae,
  • School reports and
  • the declaration of consent signed by you and the legal guardian or legal representative to pass on data for the selection process and to participate in a measure of career entry support.

If you are able to participate in the career entry support, you must complete a registration and participant questionnaire. The questionnaire will be provided by your career entry companion.

In principle, career entry support begins in the pre-departure class of the general school, provided that it also offers career entry support.

A later entry is possible for you in individual cases if appropriate places are available in the career entry support and the support still seems promising to support integration into vocational training.
