Understanding School in Germany

Im Buch »Schule in Deutschland verstehen. Grundwissen für Eltern« geht es um zwei Themen, die alle Familien mit Kindern früher oder später betreffen: Schule und Berufswahl. Diese Fragen kommen den meisten Eltern sicherlich bekannt vor: Wie kann ich mein Kind vor Beginn der Schule und während der Schulzeit unterstützen? Welche Rolle spielen wir als Eltern bei der Berufswahl unseres Kindes? Welche Rechte und Pflichten haben wir als Eltern? Was passiert nach der Schule? 100 kurze und verständliche Texte enthalten Antworten auf diese und weitere Fragen. Dieses Buch zeigt die vielen Möglichkeiten auf, wie Eltern mit der Schule zusammenarbeiten können. Es ist einfach zu lesen und enthält 20 kurze Kapitel. Jedes Kapitel enthält 5 wichtige Informationen zu einem Thema. Außerdem gibt es konkrete Tipps und zusätzliche Informationsquellen. Das Buch kann bei Elternveranstaltungen, Elternabenden an Schulen sowie in der außerschulischen Elternbildung eingesetzt werden. »Schule in Deutschland verstehen« gibt es mittlerweile in insgesamt sechs Sprachfassungen: Arabisch, Deutsch, Englisch, Persisch, Russisch und Türkisch.

There are more options

There are more options after secondary school than some parents think. 16.1 Career and vocational education and training or university – age is not an issue! If your child knows what he or she wants to do, then, of course, he or she can immediately start career and vocational training or university after finishing school. However, this is not mandatory. There are no laws in Germany that set age limits as to when someone must commence studies or start training. Sometimes it may be very reasonable to do something else between secondary school and getting a tertiary education. 16.2 I have no idea what I want to do. Something that many young people say.

16.3 It is better to take some time and gather some different experience after finishing school, rather than to rashly make a wrong decision which can affect you for the rest of your life.

This, of course, must be within reason and shouldn’t last for years on end. 16.4 If the application process is not immediately successful, use the time effectively. There are many ways in which one can effectively utilise the time between school and continuing with further education and training. During this time, your child can learn a number of important things. He or she can gain new experience and independently solve new problems. He or she can improve or learn a foreign language, or strengthen his or her social and personal skills. And most importantly: Your child can gather work experience and find out about different occupations. German federal volunteer service (Bundesfreiwilligendienst), taking a year off to do voluntary social service (Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr), or working are all things that are regarded positively when applications are evaluated. … 67 …
