Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study over the period 1989 to 2004 provide a valuable insight into further professional training. Although there has been an increase in the frequency of training measures, the duration of courses has tended to decrease. The majority of further professional training takes place during working time and is provided for by the employer. Workers increasingly attach greater value to training measures, particularly in terms of enhancing their employability. The data reveal that both women and non-permanent contract holders are disadvantaged in terms of further training during working hours, and in relation to financial support provided by the company for external professional training.
