Every helping hand is needed.


The “Agentur für Arbeit”, the German employment agency, informs about current jobs.

After finishing the educational schooling, it is important to undergo training and practices to earn money.

The educational schooling and the following career can be completed in Germany as follows:

Pupils have to visit the primary school from first to fourth grade. Based on their performance level, they can decide whether they want to visit the “Gesamtschule” (like a comprehensive school) which includes the possibility to achieve a good lower secondary school leaving qualification (Hauptschulabschluss), a completed secondary education (mittlere Reife) or

higher education entrance qualification (Hochschulreife). Other educational institutions in Germany are the “Gymnasium” (highest educational schooling level), Realschule (secondary school), Hauptschule (lower secondary school) or the Förderschule (special school or school for children with special education support).

Every state in germany can decide how the different schooling systems are put together. In several states the Hauptschule and Realschule are combined in one school to reach a better pedagogical and organisational level. In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s Regionalschulen (often a mixture of Realschule and Hauptschule) pupils have the possibility to achieve their “Berufsreife” (occupational maturity) after ninth grade or their “Mittlere Reife” (secondary education) after the tenth.

At that point, the career can start off:

Depending on the actual graduation, several educational and job opportunities can come along.

– After finishing the “Förderschule”, a move to the “Hauptschule, into the “Berufsgrundbildungsjahr” (BGJ) or to a dual job training is possible.

– After finishing the „Hauptschule“, a move to the “Realschule”, into a “BVJ” (a yearlong preparatory training program), “Berufsgrundbildungsjahr” (BGJ) or to a dual job training is possible.

– After completing the Fachoberschule (technical secondary school), it is possible to move to the “Gymnasiale Oberstufe” (senior classes of a Gymnasium), “Berufsfachschule” (vocational college), a vocational academy, a college, a University or to a dual job training.

– After completing the “Gymnasiale Oberstufe”, the so called Abitur (highest education schooling level), a move to the University, a college, a “Berufsfachschule” (vocational college), and a vocational academy or to a dual job training is possible.
