Vocational training for disadvantaged young people
Developing educational quality
Production schools are educational institutions introducing disadvantaged young people to the working world. However, this type of school is neither specifically defined nor institutionalised. Moreover, pedagogical settings and quality assurance concepts at production schools are often insufficient. Using the example of the quality seal of Bundesverband Produktionsschulen e.V. (German association of production schools), the dissertation examines the means production schools as institutions have at hand to prove the quality of their support of disadvantaged persons and, at the same time, position themselves within the German educational landscape. The examined approaches to educational quality are essential for establishing production schools as an alternative to other forms of vocational training, particularly with respect to young refugees as an education group.
