One of today's big challenges is that we have to relate more and more to other cultural backgrounds.
For example, in UK, ethnic minorities are less likely to find and sustain employment than their counterparts - and this disadvantage has persisted for more than a decade.
In general, we lack insight into the situation of young ethnic minorities, who may find themselves daily caught between two cultures and two sets of values.
This can be very difficult for the individual youth. But can also mature a girl/boy enormously, as it requires great strength: Insight, language competencies, negotiating skills, historical and geographical knowledge, the courage to be different etc.
- Does your apprentice need support in this process?
- Or can you actually learn something from the development and competencies of the apprentice?
