Very good job prospects as a teacher
They are desperately wanted: educators. There are many reasons for this, not least because, since 2013, there is a national right to a place of childcare for every child who has reached the age of one. There are still staff shortages. The number of young people who can start an apprenticeship is also decreasing year by year. In addition, many of the employees who are still working will retire in the next few years, so things will only get worse. Male educators are in particular sought after. The percentage of men in nurseries and kindergartens is now less than ten percent.
There are many ways to become a professional educator. Side entry is also possible. Here you will find a concise summary of all options and requirements.
Skilled workers are lacking in many places. Especially in kindergartens. There are job vacancies everywhere, and kindergarten teachers are looking for them.

Hit from Heaven Sunday 2022
On September 18, there will be a special “music” service once again across Hesse. Once a year on “Hit-From-Heaven-Sunday” the pop song from the FFH playlist takes center stage in many Hessian churches. This year, the Hessians chose “One of Us” from Joan Osborne.
There are over eighty churches in total. During the services, guests can exchange ideas and talk about their experiences with God and what they would like to ask Him. And of course there is a lot of singing. With bands, solo singers and gospel choirs. In some communities, even new choirs were created especially for Hit From Heaven Sunday.
Soon you will find out where and when such a service takes place in your area.
