Discrimination against apprentices with a minority background


A study made by the Institute for Human Rights, draws a terrible picture. 1 in 3 vocational schools (places where you learn a craft or trade) are being asked by companies if they can provide them with ethnic Danish apprentices, and unfortunately, many of the schools comply with the request. Almost every vocational school in Denmark has experienced companies refusing their students because of their minority background. 

  • A reminder for companies that do this and the vocational schools that accept this practice: doing this is not only unethical but also illegal. 
  • If you have been discriminated against, remember you can call the “Discrimination Line” at 32 69 86 66 (Monday to Thursday between 12 and 15).
