Apply for admission to vocational school


The vocational school imparts job-related and cross-occupational skills for recognised training occupations in accordance with the Vocational Training Act (BBiG) or the Crafts Code (HwO) in the dual system. It enables the exercise of the profession and the co-creation of the world of work and society. Before vocational school, you can complete a vocational preparation year.

The system is called dual because the training is carried out at 2 learning locations: in the company and in the vocational school. The vocational school and the training companies fulfil a common educational and educational mission in dual vocational training. As an independent place of learning, the vocational school works together with those involved in vocational training.

The dual training lasts 2, 3 or 3 years and 6 months in recognised training occupations.

The training includes the theoretical training in the vocational school and the practical training in the company. The Federal Government draws up regulations for in-company training. For the Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs (KMK), regulations for the vocational school are drawn up.

The teaching time in the vocational school comprises 12 lessons per week. It can also be combined into teaching blocks lasting several weeks. In principle, instruction is given in specialist classes of a training occupation or related training occupations. Of the approximately 330 recognised training occupations, around 240 are being trained in Saxony-Anhalt. In the case of low numbers of pupils in certain occupations, schooling takes place in transnational specialist classes. This means that the vocational school may be located in another federal state.

If you have successfully attended the vocational school, you will receive the vocational school leaving certificate. With the vocational school leaving certificate, the lower secondary school leaving certificate is acquired. Furthermore, you can acquire the Realschulabschluss and extended Realschulabschlusse. If you have taken part in an additional offer during your training and passed the additional examination, you will acquire the Fachhochschulreife.

The company responsible for the training registers you at the vocational school responsible for the corresponding training occupation (according to the specialist class decree).

If you want to study at another vocational school location, you must justify this. The school authority or the state education office will then decide on your application.

The prerequisite is the conclusion of a training contract with a provider approved for the training (company, company, practice, etc.).

  • Valid copy of the training contract

Vocational Training Act or Crafts Code as well as other chamber regulations
