This article sheds light on the company perspective of second chance training for semi-skilled and unskilled employees. The central issue is which hurdles companies perceive as standing in the way of expansion of second chance training activities. On the basis of 42 qualitative interviews conducted with company stakeholders, three types of firms which have certain reasons for not providing second chance training can be differentiated. Familiarisation with these categories is an important prerequisite in order to use guidance as a vehicle for acquiring more companies to offer second chance training to their staff.
