Abstract: The report offers an outline of the development on the youth labour market in Austria between 1980 and 1997 and of the most important political interventions in this field. Against this background, the training initiative of 1997 for solving the apprenticeship crisis is being analysed more closely. It is shown that a broad political and institutional scope for action is existing in Austria, which allows for searching solutions of the problems on the youth labour market from different perspectives. Considering the high political priority of the subject, the partly missing co-ordination of these initiatives proves to be advantageous rather than disadvantageous, the different parties and persons involved developing political initiatives which diversify in manner and mode. The approaches towards reforming the apprenticeship system are regarded as scarcely innovative and many questions concerning the actual situation and the development in this field are still left unanswered.;
