Only a little more than one in two trainees in Germany feels well prepared for digitalization. This is the result of the 2019 Training Report of the youth wing of the German Trade Union Federation (DGB), according to information obtained by the German Press Agency.
According to the study, only 54 percent of the young trainees feel that they are specifically prepared to use digital technologies during their training. Around 80 percent of those surveyed stated that digitalization and automation were fundamentally important or very important in their training.
The DGB youth wing is presenting its report this Thursday in Berlin. Their training report for 2018 showed that the vast majority of trainees (70 percent) are satisfied with their apprenticeship. However, many apprentices complained about regular overtime and constant availability.
