Lehrstellen 'cycle' [apprenticeships]

Does anyone know...

Do firms all open their Lehrstellen vacancies around the same time ? If so when ?

Re: Lehrstellen 'cycle'

February and March are the intense months to get a place, as they all start in August.

If you haven't signed a contract by Easter, teachers tend to panic. What's left after that is the jobs nobody really want.

Re: Lehrstellen 'cycle'

No, I don't think so... Do you mean one year work experience or short-term work experience?

It would normally run parallel to the school year and I know where I work we have three-day work experience and two week work experience students any time in the year, whenever they apply. If they then want to apply for a year-long work experience which will lead to an apprenticeship, then they usually start in August and go through to July, and we confirm their apprenticeship with them between January and April. The applications for students to join the apprenticeships go in around April I think.

However, if we have a vacancy and someone suitable applies, we take them any time of year.

We never take apprentices who do not already have at least six months or longer work experience...

I know a lot of students are told to apply direclty for apprenticeships without doing the work experience 'practicum' first, but we found that was unsuccessful for our workplace. The apprentices need a bit of a 'track record' with work first and settle in before they start studying again.

'School' for apprentices starts same time as the normal school year - around mid August. It may not be too late to apply for this year, but it must be getting close to running out of time to sort it out...
