Company Costs & Benefits

The company bears the costs of the remuneration of the apprentice and the costs of the in-company training. The level of remuneration of the apprentice will often be laid down in the collective agreements. If not, it will be specified in the contract between the training company and the apprentice.

The company’s costs are mainly connected to the salary paid to the apprentice. Salaries in college-based periods of VET are reimbursed to the company from a common fund financed by all companies in Denmark. However, the guiding principle in terms of company costs is that the apprentice is supposed to participate in productive work, thus minimizing the costs for the Company.
