The main aim is to support women in finding a realistic way into the working world.
Therefore a measuring of competences takes place based on the work and personal experiences of the women and their skills. The women’s career aspirations are taken into consideration and we search for possibilities to fullfill them.
In the resulting support plan gradual subgoals are developed together. With an employee those subgoals are reflected and adjusted as necessary or restated.
Experience has shown that the women have to overcome many obstacles including:
psychological burdens, fears, insufficient language skills, low qualifications, no school-leaving qualifications or a school qualification not recognised here and last but not least, having no possibility to invest years into further training for reasons of age.
Particular difficulties have single parents who cannot do shift work because of the lack of childcare or because potencial employers are not willing to respond to requirements of family-friendly working hours.
Here society, employers and politics are challenged to develope prospects for single parents whose numbers will grow steadily.
