Training with a disability

The chances of getting an in-company training place are low for many young people with disabilities. This is not only due to the demands of the training market, but often also to the scepticism of many entrepreneurs: they fear performance deficits and additional work. But they are wrong: with professional support, young people with disabilities can successfully complete an apprenticeship.

More information is available in the brochure of the NRW Ministry of Labour.
