    "The report presents findings from the research accompanying the vocational preparation schemes (BvB) of the Federal Employment Agency (BA) 2006/2007. Firstly, the aim was to provide the BA with empirical information on how the 'new BvB concept' (NFK), introduced in 2004, was concretely implemented. Secondly, it was to analyze the influence of the characteristics of the training providers and the composition of the measures on the results (in particular, on transitions into apprenticeship) as well as the importance of core elements of the NFK for transitions into training, such as qualification modules and internships. In addition to a description of the structural features of the training providers, of the composition of measures and of the concrete implementation of the concept by these training providers, findings on variables that influence the results of the measures are presented: with an increasing share of participants in the measures without a school leaving certificate, from the sphere of SGBII (Social Code II) and of drop-outs the share of transitions into apprenticeship declines. A similarly negative effect is also observed when the number of participants pro measure increases. On the other hand, positive effects result from an increasing share of participants with internships that are longer than average, as well as of young persons disadvantaged on the job market. A high quality of support as well as the joint implementation of a measure by several training providers has an indirect influence on the results of the measures by decreasing the dropout rate. While in-house internships of above-average length have a positive effect on transition into apprenticeship, such an effect cannot be ascertained for qualification modules."
