Discrimination on Germany’s Job Training Market (November 2012 – April 2014)

Job market discrimination has particularly serious consequences because success or failure also affects the opportunities to participate in other areas of life. By administering a correspondence test (1,794 job training applications) this research project sought to collect data for the first time on the occurrence and scope of discrimination when applying for training positions, including possible causes of and mechanisms for discrimination.

The results should be directly usable for practice: training companies, applicants for training positions, chambers of commerce and industry, chambers of trade, actors in transition management and political decision-makers can all benefit in equal measure.

The research project was funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The results were published in March 2014.
