In order to improve points of access and opportunities for participation for as many young adults as possible, it is incumbent on all stakeholders involved in training to develop and implement initiatives and concepts. The emphasis needs to be on avoiding special pathways and on supporting routes into the mainstream system. The aim is that young people and young adults should not form the sole focus of education and training provision and support programmes. General conditions and possible ways of designing training are also gaining greater attention, and this is something which concerns all training stakeholders. This article uses a database from the Office for Transitions to Training and Work (“überaus”) to investigate the extent to which this perspective is already being reflected in Federal Government and federal state funding programmes.
