Applying for a new training occupation for people with disabilities


As far as possible, people with disabilities should also be trained in "regular" recognised training occupations.

If, due to the nature and severity of the disability, you or a person with a disability in your care are not eligible for training in a recognised training occupation, the competent authority (e.g. the Chamber of Industry and Commerce or the Chamber of Crafts) will make special training arrangements upon request.

If such regulations have already been made for the desired profession in your region, you do not need to submit an application.

The Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training has already made recommendations for so-called specialist practitioner occupations for some occupations, but these must also be recognised in your region. Therefore, please inquire in advance with the office responsible for your region and the desired profession whether such a regulation already exists. Depending on the profession, the responsible bodies are, for example, chambers of industry and commerce, chambers of crafts or agriculture.

The procedure for new regulations requires the participation of various bodies and institutions, including those outside the Chamber, and therefore takes a longer time, usually between 6 and 12 months. From the application, the completion of the required information and documents, the clarification of details, the aptitude assessment at the training place, the discussion and decision-making in the Vocational Education and Training Committee of the Chamber, the approval by the responsible state ministry and the subsequent publication, a large number of stations have to be completed in accordance with the legal requirements.

Process flow

Before applying, you should seek advice from a training advisor in your chamber as to whether regular vocational training is possible or whether there is already a suitable training regulation in your region.

  • If such a regulation does not yet exist and regular training is not possible, you must find a suitable training company and a vocational school that can take over the school-based part of the training. Your Chamber may be able to assist you with this.
  • Further details may need to be clarified with the board.
  • The Chamber will then decide whether the Vocational Training Committee has to deal with your application or whether it can be processed directly.
  • If a decision by the Vocational Training Committee of the Chamber is necessary, your application will be submitted to the Committee at the next possible meeting. As a rule, the voluntary vocational training committee meets three to four times a year.
  • As a general rule, the Vocational Training Committee will first discuss the application and may seek further information on it. The decision on a new training regulation will be made either at the next meeting or directly at the first meeting.
  • Subsequently, the new training regulation will be forwarded to the responsible state ministry, which still has to approve the regulation. This can take several weeks or even months.
  • If the approval of the competent state ministry has been obtained, the regulation can be published. If no specific, later date has been set, the regulation is legally valid from the date of publication.
