The current debate for migrants also affects education. If a migrant allowed to complete an apprenticeship, then both he and his potential training company are a sheer unuitable wirrwarr at Burocratic regulations and their applications. And who comes with a training to Germany, must find that many foreign financial statements are not recognized.

For a long time, proposals for change and the system for the system have been discussed: For about four years, it should be "Recognition law" The procedures for assessing foreign professional qualifications simplify and open for previously unauthorized audit groups. But many applicants have little chance of investing costs and therefore do not achieve recognition of their qualifications. Other proposals should be supported by migrants and companies in that education can be completed in this country – such as a restraining the training periods.

Together, many suggest that they are powerless against the Burocratic chaos. The German vocational training system can look back on a long tradition of change.1 The rules of the dual training system were adapted over 100 years again and again:

In 1897, an authoritar government adopted the Handwerkersprotect Act. That should be a craft champion with a few employees, strong, so they as "Political bulwark against the rapidly becoming more powerful and radical workers’ movement."2 This law became the central innovation to which around the dual system has been constructed.

Effect and existence were amazing, because actually it was directed to the craft and not to the industry; In addition, it supervised with two world wars and state upholstery extremes. Thus, due to three circumstances, it exceeds positive feedback, constitutional and processes of institutional content with the aim of involving influential new actors and to face new economic and political challenges.

Continuous re-negotiations of the form and scope of vocational training institutions have accumulated over time so that they lively led to their political and functional transformation: 3 originally reactionary, represented and stabilizes the craftsmanship law today the power of employee representation in political economy.4

The system continues to transform, and this transformation has been strongly interpreted by particularly two developments since the end of the 1990s: First of all, through the Europeanization, because the training in the EU Member States is also influenced by the EU. The second development ran in Germany, you can describe them as segmentalism and dualism.5
