Survey of Apprenticeship Training in 2016

Structural Data, Trends and Prospects

The strong decline in the number of apprentices and training companies, which is mainly due to demographic reasons, is leading to growing concentration tendencies in the apprenticeship training sector: smaller companies now hardly receive any job applications whereas the share of apprentices in large companies is rising continually. Apprentice figures will probably go up (slightly) soon, at least among beginners. This is indicated by the latest issue of the ibw “Survey of Apprenticeship Training” study, which comes out every year (with funding provided by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy BMWFW and the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber WKO) and provides an overview of currently available statistical data on apprenticeship training in Austria. As well as the apprenticeship figures themselves, it also comprises the latest data on the labour market success of apprenticeship graduates, apprenticeship and school dropout numbers, public and company expenditure for apprenticeship training, and much more.
