Dear colleagues, we work in Berlin as trainers and coaches for young people searching for apprenticeship in hospitality. We realise that, due to Covid 19, it is very difficult this year to motivate young people for a profession in this sector. We are wondering whether this is a tendency that will last for the next years, and what we can do against it. The hospitality sector has been for many years one of the major pillars of economy and job market in Berlin, and the Senate of Berlin is providing support programmes to assure apprenticeship which, normally, would take place as work-based learning in companies. However, there is a lack of interest on the side of the young people. What can we do? Maybe you have similar experiences and some ideas on how young people would find perspectives for themselves in our sector!?
We would be happy to read your comments!
Thank you and best wishes from Berlin
