Generally you are also paid by your employer during a vocational training course in a company. How much you are paid can vary quite widely depending on profession and the year of training.
Hundreds of euros per month
In some professions the pay in the first year is about EUR 400 a month while in other professions you are paid more, even at the beginning. The pay will increase a little with every year of training until the end of the vocational training course. At the end of the vocational training course you must pass practical and theoretical examinations as a skilled worker. Companies that employ you after this will then pay you a skilled worker’s wages.
