In the debate about the new Youth Training Scheme, there has been a lot of talk about the example of the much admired West German dual system of vocational training. It is true that the German system provides a training place for a large proportion of school‐leavers; 86 per cent of minimum‐age school‐leavers in 1977 had begun an apprenticeship by 1980. Yet it too has its problems; and for policy‐makers involved in the implementation of YTS there are lessons to be learned from both the successes and the failures of the German system.
