Many aspiring educators to cancel their training. Probably because they get in the training, no salary. Exactly as Minister for family Affairs Giffey.
The reality of most of the prospective teachers and educators in Germany, looks like the Nicole Lorenz. You can't concentrate on the training because you will not receive training pay. This applies to more than 80 percent of the professional students and professional students in this area. "I need to casually work in the week to 20 hours, so I can make the training more. That is, I have a working week of 50 to 60 hours"
Nicole Lorenz is one of about two dozen aspiring educators and educators who have discussed with Minister for the family, Franziska Giffey, today, in the Ruth-Cohn-Schule in Berlin about their plans for more and better staff in a German day-care centres.
headmistress Andreja Orsag complains about the need for many to have to the way to work. This was for the trainees to be a burden, said the Minister. "That's why the drop-out rate is also big. There are many, which then need to cancel in the second or third year of training, because they are on the verge of exhaustion."More paid training places
Among other things, at this point, wants to start Giffey with your new program "Skilled worker campaign for educators". She explains: "I have so many people who have written to me, 'I would like to be an educator, I can't afford it'. This is the Problem we have. We have a shortage of professional people, who would say like to do but, you can't afford it. And it needs to change something."
Giffeys program provides for, among other things, that, as from 2019 from the Federal 5000 trainees. In the first year of training you will receive in the future, 1140 euros, in the last 1303 Euro. From the second year of training the providers of day-care centres have to pay a contribution of 30 per cent, later of 70 percent. As a result of your program, promises Giffey, will be paid instead of currently, almost every fifth - in the future, every third training course for teachers and educators.
More points in the program: day-care centres financial support to get, if you make your employees more, new the educators guide. In addition, quality should be rewarded more highly qualified educators to get more money.
teachers are urgently needed - the program is intended to reduce the bottleneck.criticism of the Union
in Principle, Giffeys Initiative go in the right direction, say the unions. Björn Köhler of the German trade Union for education and science, but also emphasizes: "The 'specialist forces' offensive ' comes, in our opinion, much too late. It was already more than ten years ago anticipated that there will be a shortage of skilled workers. 300 million euros are a good place to start. It is a Motivation for the countries, which then must surely also money in the education system."
The family Minister defends himself against this criticism. Also in the press conference for the presentation of their "skilled labour offensive," responded Giffey irritated on the note, in your new program, only a fraction of the money it is spending for the "Good-Kita-law" flow with 300 million euros. You said:
Not from today to tomorrow
"Me, upset: Everyone says here, we have not a knowledge deficit, we have an action deficit. And then, when one makes something and says, we have here a really good thing to come out the first and say, 'flickentep picherei'. It was so little and be shy. To be quite honest? I'm not shy. I'll start with that. What we are doing here is a starting point."
This could be, in fact, only a beginning, says the head of the school. Andreja Orsag wishes that in addition to the Federal now States and municipalities are active. Because improvements in the day-care centres are not from today to tomorrow: "This is a tedious task and the idea that it can be quickly and cost-neutral to succeed, is completely wrong. It will cost a lot of money, if there is something Sensible coming out of that."
