Would you like to gain commercial experience or complete additional training? In this case, a training firm is the right choice for you. In line with the principle of "learning by doing", you will gain experience and new professional knowledge in a practical environment. This will increase your chances of finding a new job more quickly.
Commerce, crafts and technology
Training firms simulate all areas of the economy:
A firm in the area of commerce, for example, buys and sells fictitious products with other training firms. Thanks to the various processes running between the companies, you can carry out realistic work in the areas of administration, finances, accountancy, banking etc.
Another example is in the crafts and technology sectors, where you can carry out work in the areas of manufacturing, construction, conception etc. This helps you gain practical experience or learn new techniques.
Requirements for completing a work placement:
- You must be unemployed or at risk of becoming unemployed
- You must be registered with a regional employment centre RAV
- The labour market situation must require participation in a training firm
- Your ability to find a job must be improved by participating in the training firm
- It must have been recommended by your RAV personnel consultant
Do you have the right profile?
This measure is suitable for people whose lack of direct practical experience is disadvantaging them in finding a job. Priority is given to:
- Young unemployed people directly after their apprenticeship
- People rejoining the labour market
Ms Moser is 42 years old. She dedicated many years of her life to raising her children. On getting divorced, her financial situation became more complicated, meaning she has had to start looking for work again. She quickly realises that working processes have changed a great deal and she will have difficulty finding a job. She therefore registers with an RAV.
To facilitate her re-entry into the labour market, her RAV personnel consultant recommends that she complete a work placement at a training firm, where she can fully immerse herself in the world of work. He also suggests a course in office IT. Six months spent at a training firm together with the course in office IT will help open doors in the labour market.
Duration of measure
Usually six months.
Looking for a job: Always a priority!
You are obliged to continue looking for a job during the entire time spent at a training firm. As such, your job search must be compatible with the working hours at the firm.
