Teachers from Spain: cucumber for Breakfast requires tolerance

children are children? Not quite. "In Germany, you are self-employed", has Marta Ferreras noted Presa in the first two weeks in Bad Homburg daycare in Eschbachtal. In Spain, they began much later, himself dressed, clean up tackle or to eat with a knife and fork. For that you need to meet in your home country other expectations.

When you eat even more cultural differences. That you get in Germany after 22 a.m., nothing serves, while Restaurants in Spain then fill slowly, is a classic occasion for misunderstandings and forces for change. But also the Breakfast in the day-care centre for the Spanish Surprises. "They eat cucumber this time, and peppers," says Marta blankly and shakes his head over what to get the Little one out of your Breakfast cans. "Don't say that just in front of the children!", Kita-Manager, Christian Röder warns in mock concern about the efforts for a healthy diet.

Constantly on the search for experts

The 29-year-old woman from Leon in the North-West of the Iberian Peninsula is one of four Spanish women who have recently started their service as a governess in the town of Bad Homburg, due to the Corona of a pandemic after a two-week quarantine. "Currently, we have no shortage of day-care professionals," says social Department head Lucia Lewalter-Schoor (SPD). This would however change quickly if they were to remain inactive. "24 percent of our 380 teachers go in the next five years in retirement," explains the councillor. In this time arise because of new housing in the five new nursery roosts in Dornholzhausen, Ober-Erlenbach, Ober-Eschbach, and in the city centre. "Therefore, we are constantly looking for skilled workers."

The Association introduced in 2015, the first on their own. Bad Homburg is served, however, a German-Spanish recruitment Agency. This is in the whole Rhine-Main area and in the Munich area. The new Partner managing Director Raúl Krämer, who grew up in Bad Homburg knows, however, is particularly good. "Here in the nursery Eschbachtal I have given my little sister when I'm in the next room went to the school."

in 2011, Krämer began to teach nurses to Germany. However, these were often challenged, as they wear in Spain, according to one study, significantly more responsibility. Also teachers have studied in Spain. "You have a very good qualification, there are estimated to be worth less than it is here," said Kraemer, The show primarily to the working conditions with a low number of staff, low salary, and little prospect of permanent employment. "The teachers who are trained every year in Spain, work therefore just ten percent in your profession." Accordingly, the demand for the 75 places offered by his Agency every year. "We have more than 4500 applicants."

The selection plays a big role. "We are looking for motivated women and men, look after the interests and whether the family Situation, it is expected that you might want, but soon again back in their homeland." For six months, you will learn German in an intensive – daily five hours of class and two hours of homework.
