How can companies and trainees prepare for the digital world of work in an appropriate way? The social partners in the chemical industry have worked in conjunction with BIBB to develop a new elective qualification for the training occupation of chemical technician entitled “Digitalisation and networked production”, which entered into force in August 2018. Since then, over 350 trainees have already taken advantage of this new option. This article describes the reasons for the introduction of the elective qualification and the areas of activity in which it can be applied.
