Inter-company vocational training centres support companies in the delivery of company-based training by offering supplementary programmes and by facilitating advanced and continuing training. The BMBF has been making funding available for the facilities and infrastructure modernisation of these institutions since 1973. The inter-company vocational training centres continued to develop because of this support and the high degree of flexibility of their requirements-oriented training provision. The article presents the changeability of this learning venue. It begins by describing the general training remit of the centres before going on to trace developments on the basis of specific support programmes and to discuss future prospects.
