The vocational education and training system makes a major contribution to the integration of young people and young adults from a migrant background. Most federal states have established specific preparatory courses focusing on language acquisition and vocational orientation for this target group. The aim of such training programmes is for learners to remain within the educational system and ideally to enter training. The article uses the Freiburg Government District as an example to investigate the extent to which this correlates with the occupational preferences of young refugees.
