Which conditions apply to me as a trainee in the company?
As a trainee, you have rights too. For example, you have the right to be treated with respect. Training is a learning relationship and making mistakes is also part of learning.
Your general training plan specifies exactly what you are supposed to learn in which year of training. It is your right that this training plan is followed. Your trainer is authorised to issue instructions to you. This means that they instruct you on how you must complete the work. However, activities which have nothing to do with your training are not part of this contract. If activities which have nothing to do with your training goal take up a lot of time, you can refuse to do these.
There are also strict regulations relating to working time and safety measures. You can find out more from the ‘Dr. Azubi’ online portal for trainees: http://jugend.dgb.de/ausbildung/beratung/dr-azubi
