“Refugees Day” – Traineeship in Kassel

Pathing the way for newly arrived migrants to the German Labour market the District of Kassel invented the “Refugees Day” – a sort of speed dating between refugees and employers. For one day refugees could attend a traineeship in a company and both sides get an impression, if the work is suitable and the worker is suitable for the employer. With the help of “LikeHome” this initiative has produced a video to share as an example for best practice in Europe.
