Many of the refugees, who have recently come to Germany, are between 18 and 25 years old and thus in a stage of life, when the entry into vocational training normally takes place. The so called dual system represents an opportunity for refugees to the labor market. The task in the federal multilevel state is to design an appropriate framework of the vocational training system. This paper examines exemplarily and comparatively how the refugee policies in Germany comply with these tasks and if there are local differences in the policy gaps.
