Update on previous news: New requirements for interns in the green sector in fields with a lack of places of apprenticeships
SIRI has received new data on which fields within the green sector experience a general lack of places of apprenticeships. SIRI has previously announced that there was a general lack of places of apprenticeships in all fields of the green sector (the agricultural, veterinary, forestry and horticultural field).
The new data show instead that, in the current year, there is a general lack of places of apprenticeships only in the following fields of the green sector:
- the horticultural field
- the forestry field
If you are offered apprenticeship in one of the above mentioned fields, your place of internship must attach, therefore, a signed declaration to the application, stating that they either:
- have an apprentice from the Danish vocational schools employed or
- that they have tried to employ an apprentice from the Danish vocational schools in the 3 months prior to the submission of the application by posting a job ad on the central apprenticeship portal of the Ministry of Children and Education (in Danish only)
There is general lack of places of apprenticeships when more than 5 percent of the students undergoing vocational education do not have an apprenticeship or are in schooling after the second basic course.
Statistics concerning this can be found on the Ministry of Children and Education’s website (in Danish only)
