In Heidelberg, about a third of families live in so-called single-parent households. In two out of five cases, these single males and females have not completed vocational training and are therefore significantly more affected by poverty. On the other hand, we read every year about the shortage of skilled workers and the fact that fewer and fewer apprenticeships are even being filled.
We at DUETT promote this form of training anchored in the law. We support single parents on their way to finding part-time training, accompany them in the application process and ensure with them the financial security of their livelihood. In this way, in addition to child and old-age poverty, we are also combating the shortage of skilled workers and contributing to an economically secure future for many Heidelbergers.
Together with the mayor, we want to develop a tolerant Heidelberg as a city in which equal opportunities and integration are actively lived.
