By retraining in the new profession – this is how it works
“Idea for me” brings the idea of retraining for the new year into play. The Hannoversche Allgemeine also discussed this topic in a current article. How so? Because a successful retraining creates the potential to turn your entire life upside down. At some point there may come a point in life where, from a professional point of view, things can go no further.
There are no more perspectives on the horizon, you don’t want to see them, maybe you don’t see any more potential in what you’re doing and want to try something new. Our time is fast-paced and professions are also changing rapidly. Reasons for health, self-fulfillment or satisfaction can of course personally legitimize retraining. How does such a retraining work anyway?
How do retraining work?
A retraining can be a school retraining that is completed in a vocational school. Usually internships are also to be held here. In dual, in-company retraining, there is a practical and a theoretical part, especially since the practical part takes place at the training company and the theoretical part at a vocational school. The good thing here is that retraining students receive a training salary. Finally, there are also inter-company retraining courses in which private educational institutions assume the costs of theoretical and practical training. Internships are also often required.
There can be all kinds of retraining in all areas and industries that may come into question, as can be seen here: retraining. For example, there are basic courses that teach the basics of PC skills and communication. IT specialists, media designers or professions in the commercial sector such as real estate or industrial clerks are in demand when it comes to classic professions for retraining. Retail clerks, office clerks, tax clerks or masseurs in the health sector are also professions that can be learned through retraining. In the best case scenario, job opportunities increase after the retraining has been completed. Then you only need skills in terms of writing a CV or cover letter and the necessary calmness in the interview.
Requirements for retraining
In principle, there is not much required to be able to decide on retraining. You should be at least 18 years old and therefore already have a job. However, there are actually a few factors that will help make retraining more likely. Health reasons, for example that contribute to the fact that practicing the current job is or becomes almost impossible. Poor future prospects in the old job or very good career prospects in the new job sought are also arguments that could lead to the retraining being taken over by a provider.
Payment of costs
The employment agency, for example, takes on school retraining, the health insurance or pension insurance or the job center usually take on up to two years of retraining for health reasons, while a training company pays the training salary. Depending on the institution, retraining can also be held part-time.
