Can they do it? How the jobcenter tries to integrate refugees

Can they do it? How the jobcenter tries to integrate refugees

The job center is the point of contact for all recognized refugees in the district for benefits under "hartz IV". Once an application for benefits has been approved, the job center’s integration work begins. The job center is currently looking after 534 refugees, compared with 494 in july. This corresponds to about one quarter of all people who are employable and in need here. Most refugees come from syria and iraq.

First step: information

Since most of the refugees do not know german and often bring with them previous professional knowledge that is not in demand in this country, integration is a difficult but rewarding process for both sides, according to a press release. Initially, the most important goal is to inform them about the german benefits system and the basic rules of life here.
In a first step, group information in arabic, english and german explains to them what the job center is and how it works. In a second step, the arabic-speaking employees provide advice in personal languages. They will also clarify what conditions refugees must meet in order to receive unemployment benefit II, what applications they must complete, and what documents they must bring with them. They also provide information on how the job center can help them find a place to live.

Second step: language acquisition

In job placement, language acquisition is the first priority. Recognized refugees are entitled to integration and literacy courses. Funded by the bamf, there are now sufficient courses in erlangen, herzogenaurach and nurnberg.
After taking a placement test, refugees attend a suitable course and complete advanced modules. Once they have completed module B1, which certifies that they have a fairly good command of the language, the work of integrating them into the labor market begins.
After about one and a half years, refugees have reached this level and the job center can find them a job, usually in the helping sector. If they want to do an apprenticeship, refugees should preferably reach the B1 to B2 language level. If a traineeship is added, three years pass between the time the application is submitted and the start of training.
A refugee can only take up a course of study if he or she has recognized certificates and language skills at level C1. It often takes three years to get there.
Some refugees fail in the language course system, for example if they do not reach the B1 level. The job center is trying to provide more support for these people by offering them additional educational services. If people fail, the job center employs them in alternative community work, for example in the social department stores of the district. Here they are gradually introduced to the job market.

Smoke closure for the breitenbach-mitgenfeld fire department

Smoke closure for the breitenbach-mitgenfeld fire department

Firefighters aim to cause as little damage as possible during the firefight. A project of the bavarian chamber of insurance is also aimed at this: it is currently equipping numerous fire departments with a so-called mobile smoke seal. With this system, the fire departments can prevent smoke from spreading into buildings and causing damage.
Firefighters usually use the stairwell for firefighting operations in multi-story buildings. There is a danger that the necessary opening of doors will endanger the most important escape route for fleeing people due to the spread of smoke. With a mobile smoke closure, smoke-free stairwells can be ensured as a rescue route for self-rescue and rescue by others, smoke poisoning can be avoided, critical emergency situations can be defused and extensive property damage can be prevented.
Another advantage, according to the chamber of insurance, is that the danger posed to the players by possible flames when opening doors is significantly reduced.
Since 2008, the chamber of insurance has distributed more than 2700 mobile smoke detectors throughout bavaria, according to its own information. With a stick price of more than 450 euros, more than one million euros has already been invested in additional security.
Now a representative of the chamber of insurance also presented the two commanders of the breitenbach-mitgenfeld volunteer fire department with a mobile smoke trap. Second mayor karl ziegler from the municipality of oberleichtersbach thanked mrs. Seubert from the chamber of insurance for the generous donation and wished the commandant michael greger and his deputy holger borner many exercises, but few uses with the mobile smoke trap.

“The whole village laughs at it”: no solution in the dispute over bird droppings in bavaria

The maypole of an allgau municipality leads to excessive bird droppings on the neighboring property? Because of a lawsuit filed by a resident against the municipality of altusried in bavaria, the kempten district court has been dealing with this question for months. But the proceedings have stalled: the court has so far been unable to find an expert to investigate the case in altusried.

Actually, a research institute had already named an expert for the investigation to the kempten district court months ago, a court spokesman said. In the end, however, the latter had stated that "as a matter of principle, he does not issue expert opinions". In response, the court asked again in mid-september to propose an expert – but until friday without a response from the research institute, said the court spokesman.

Maypole dispute: "the whole village laughs at it

A good negotiation in the dispute over the altusried maypole failed in the spring, according to the court. According to the will of the community, the maypole, which is about 27 meters high, is to be moved to the redesigned market square in the coming years anyway. The prospect of this, however, had not been able to deter the resident of the current site from filing a complaint.

Tuesdays-dischli: sunscreen helps in the rain

tuesdays-dischli: sunscreen helps in the rain

A certain aggression is spreading among the dear fellow human beings. No wonder, the increasingly long winter, the cold and the lack of light leave their mark.

When on friday the heavy rain from dark clouds fell on large parts of the county, it was especially bad. It started early. A honk on the road. No reason, and yet everyone seemed to think they had to loudly put the other in his place. To this, squealing tires and fully turned up loudspeakers.

Even the own customers are not spared. The poor colleague in the office. A riot, because here and there in the constant rain one or the other newspaper got wet during delivery. A catastrophe that the colleague had to pay for.

The earth house in glashutten is more effective than a passive house

The earth house in glashutten is more effective than a passive house

The driver of the low-loader was puzzled: he was supposed to deliver ten curved precast concrete parts, each one a meter and a half wide and weighing 16 tons. Right here, on the edge of glashutten, a little village of 1400 souls in the district of bayreuth. But where was the corresponding bridge construction site for this?? Werner leykam was able to enlighten the helpless searcher: he was spot on with his freight, but the carriers were destined for a residential building. What do you mean? Ten concrete giants for a family home?

Of course not for just any house. At this object, which stands like a mirage behind the abandoned restaurant "zum hirschen from the boschung rises, many things are unusual. It not only exceeds some building standards (and thus official requirements), but was also allowed to be unique in france.

For werner leykam, his wife claudia and their children tamara and joshua recently moved into a 240-square-meter house on the ground floor. The builder dug himself five meters deep into the ground. "Others spread their excavated material in the garden or have it picked up for expensive money – we simply put the tens of cubic meters on the roof." The self-employed car mechanic, whose workshop is only a screwdriver's throw away, points upwards. The crumbly layer is spread over a height of 80 centimeters; the supporting structure is protected by several layers of drainage made of styrofoam, fleece and lava chippings. "I did not know a better damming", says leykam "and it bleeds, too." Still only grass grows over the thing, in the next year it should be flowers.

In the fight against plastic gauze, the EU commission’s planned ban on individual products such as plastic tableware or straws falls short in the eyes of the greens.

Systematic collection and recycling of waste is the only way to help, european parliament member martin hausling told the german press agency. EU budget commissioner gunther oettinger confirmed his plan for a levy on non-recycled plastic waste.

On monday, the commission will present, in oettinger’s words, "a list of dispensable products that could actually be banned". The draft directive has already been known unofficially for several weeks. Accordingly, the banned list includes plastic tableware and cutlery, straws, cotton swabs and balloon holders.

In any case, coach marius kubo is confident that the. "We must build on the performance of the game against rottendorf (3:2) or the first half hour in guntersleben and pay attention to strahlungens spielertrainer jurgen hein." In guntersleben his team played strong at the beginning, but missed the decision, so that the home side could equalize before the break with a double strike and took the air out of the fuschtern in the second half. "We couldn’t do anything against them, conceding goals too easily put us off our stride", the fox coach sees a shortcoming.

Volkach wants to make it with hammerlein’s help

volkach wants to make it with hammerlein's help

Two handball teams from the district of kitzingen are playing in the women’s landesliga nord this season, and both are meeting each other directly at the start of the second half of the season, as they did on the first matchday: promoted HSG volkach is expecting HSG mainfranken, which is playing its fourth season in this division after its relegation from the bavarian league in the past.

When the two faced off for the first time in mid-september, the district derby in the sickergrundhalle in kitzingen ended without a winner. Although the hosts were in the lead for almost the entire game, they failed to maintain an interim four-goal advantage. After the change of sides, the two teams engaged in an open and exciting exchange of blows that resulted in a 22:22 score after one hour.

With three undefeated games, mainfranken got off to a promising start. Failures on the one hand and the lack of experience of a very young team on the other hand prevented a better performance in the following weeks. So after the winter break, the team coached by stefanie placht is in ninth place with 11:15 points, while volkach is lurking in twelfth place with 10:16 points, just one place behind it. A win in the ruckspiel in the home mainschleifenhalle, and volkach stand above their local rivals in the standings for the first time this season. Both could achieve a better ranking with a more successful ruck round: the league has split in the meantime, and even the fifth with 13:13 points has to look down in the wide and tight competition.
