The training placement for refugees in the regional crafts and trade sector is being further intensified. The companies between Jagst and Lake Constance will be now supported by a refugee companion. Susanne Lubos: "We want to give these people a career perspective in the crafts and trade sector."
Lubos identifies in her capacity as a refugee companion refugees having sufficient language skills and prospects for staying in Germany. She coaches and accompanies them with a view to get them involved an internship, an introductory training or a vocational education. She also supports these people in choosing a profession and provides further orientation.
„All our activities provide a chance for our businesses to hire motivated and dedicated young people", said Dr. Tobias Mehlich, chief executive of the Chamber of Crafts and Trades in Ulm. "The first placement achievements give us confidence for the current step. The companies providing training are interested and encouraged by the existing success stories." The companies´ demand and interest are particularly noticeable in the fields of electrical and precision engineering, food industries and construction. Last year, nearly 90 enterprises signaled their readiness to employ refugees. Many companies are aware of the fact that the training of a refugee means increased and intensified training efforts. The Chamber of Crafts and Trades and its employees provide their support for the regional companies.
The Ministry of Finance and Economics Baden-Württemberg promotes this professional integration of refugees by supporting the refugee companion initiative within the programme "Integration through Training – Prospects for Refugees".
