These have only been with us since the Learning, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009. Section 32 of the Act defines what an apprenticeship contract is and Section 37 defines the obligation to participate. The Vocational Training Act (2008/19) and the Labour Code do not explicitly set the minimum and maximum age for apprenticeship. While apprentices in initial vocational training are almost three-thirds of apprentices (63.2%) 36.8% of the positions held. A high degree of caution should be exercised when dismissing an apprentice. When a court decides that dismissal is unfair, it may require the employer to pay the wages and training costs that should have been due for the rest of the apprenticeship and to grant other substantial gifts to reflect the harm to the apprentice`s future career, i.e. the apprentice`s inability to qualify and thus benefit from a future improvement in the income that the qualification would have resulted. This could be particularly costly if the individual qualified as an expert. B, for example electrician or plumber.
The apprenticeship contract gives the apprentice a special status within the meaning of the labour code. Since 2019, evaluation of final integrated projects at the end of the apprenticeship has been the responsibility of the evaluation committees (“assessment teams”). After the minister`s appointment, they meet: learners who are trained with DAP or DT qualifications may have access to technical training in the area of their qualification (in the context of higher education or higher than CEQ 5 (BTS) once the compulsory preparatory modules have been completed. These modules are usually offered in one year in public training centres. Preparatory modules can be followed during or after training for the DAP or DT qualification. Employers can claim reimbursement of the employer`s contribution in social security contributions from the apprenticeship allowance paid (see Q 14). Adult apprenticeships are available from at least 18 years of age, regardless of the vocational training program, provided that applicants have left the initial vocational training for at least 12 months. An age limit is set by law. If an employer feels that there may be a point where it wants to fire an apprentice and given the above, it is probably preferable that specific conditions and disciplinary procedures be included in the contract at the beginning of the apprenticeship.
If the apprentice breaks the terms of the agreement because of his misbehaviour, then he will not be able to demand for things like the shortfall in wages. Learning in Luxembourg has a long history (1940s). Its current form was regulated in 2008 and amended in 2019. Guardians must be admitted by mutual agreement between the Chamber of Professional Work (or the Minister for occupations that do not correspond to a professional order) and the Chamber of Workers and meet the same “serious” criteria.
