When apprenticeship contracts are dissolved early, the causes are normally multifactorial. Little research has been carried out so far into substance consumption during initial vocational training, although there are indications that it is widespread and could have a negative influence on the success of initial vocational training. The article presents findings of a study by the IFT-Nord health research institute which investigates how widespread substance consumption is among trainees and what correlations can be found between substance consumption and initial vocational training success.
