Vienna – Education and training for young people

© Brigitte Gradwohl

Vienna is investing €17 million to help out the more than 16,000 young people currently without a job. The package includes intra-company vocational training, qualification passports, assistance for catching up the missed time and offers to enter into professions in health, care and IT, dedicated to the young generation.

Mayor Michael Ludwig, City Councillor for Economic Affairs Peter Hanke and Deputy Mayor Birgit Hebein therefore now have launched an education and training package which is being implemented by the Vienna Employment Promotion Fund (waff).

The package includes:

  • 10 million euros for vocational training in intra-company apprenticeships, dedicated to young people who cannot find a place in a company
  • 7 million euros for the qualification of young unemployed Viennese people that encompass several measures:
    • Qualification passports for educational screening of more than 3,000 young unemployed Viennese
    • Assistance to catch up on apprenticeships and other training/education
    • Qualification for future professions in the health, care and IT sectors as well as for newly emerging professions, for example in the fight against climate change.


The economic consequences of the Corona crisis hit young people particularly hard. 172,646 people were unemployed in Vienna in May. Compared to May of the previous year, this is an increase of 57.2 per cent or 62,817 Viennese. Among the 20 to 24 year olds, unemployment more than doubled with an increase of 8,550 persons. A total of 16,154 young Viennese in this age group are without jobs. The number of apprenticeships registered with the Austrian Labour Market Service (AMS) shows a decrease of 23 per cent compared to the previous year.
