Dear Mr. President, Ladies and gentlemen, At the risk that I’m doing right now with the first set of very unpopular here in this round: math has always been one of my favorite subjects in school. Therefore, I would like to start with a relatively simple calculation: On the one hand, the number of pupils at General and vocational schools are returned, increasingly. On the other hand, the number of people but which are in working life, because more and more older people leaving the labour market. So we have a decrease on one side and a decrease on the other side. That in the sum of nothing Positive it can be the end result, is actually clear. Of course, it also results in the end, nothing Good. At the end of the account of the lack of skilled labour out comes.

That, ladies and gentlemen, can we let this stand. So we need another factor in our invoice. This factor has to be: training. We must assume in the future, much more than in the past education as a journey through the entire life. It does not end with a diploma, it also ends with a degree. Quite the contrary: The training opened each and every one of us in new ways. Continuing education improves our career opportunities. Using training, we can also exist in an ever-changing world of work.

(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU and the SPD)

The core of the professional training, upgrading training, opened each of the way to the master, to the technicians, to the skilled and business administration, and much more. The rise of in-service training is one of the key factors to attract skilled workers, but also to keep employment opportunities here with us, in this country, in Germany,.

(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU and the SPD)

So that we can be successful, it needs the right conditions. This is especially true in terms of funding. Because of the Financial should not and must not fail at the end of the day. With the amendment of the upgrading training assistance act has enabled us to prevent exactly that. The AFBG has proven itself as a tool to promote continuing education in the past. With the added innovations – the Minister has mentioned, we design this, I think, is a very important promotion tool now pass more precise and accurate. We support the people who have the will, your promotion, tackle, and the desire to have a truly masterfully.

(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU and the SPD)

As well as the Financial must not fail, must not fail on this second point: on Want. The will, so the Motivation must be there. That’s exactly where we set the right incentives, namely by encouraging people to go the way of vocational training. The founding decree, the multiple promotion, the increase of the grants, all of these issues have often been called. With the founding decree, we beat, I think, a bit of two birds with one stone. Many businesses find no young more, wants to contribute, wants to take responsibility. In my constituency in particular, we have a lot of craft shops that are in front of the From, because you can’t find a successor. In this area, we need to do a lot of, if we don’t want to slow down our operations.

(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU)

Therefore, we say to our journeyman: you get at the start-up or during operation, the fees for the training, acquisition, taken over completely. – Yes, this can only be a part of the solution. But it is a big step in the right direction and is a milestone in the development of the AFBG.

(Applause of the Abg. Dr. Stefan Kaufmann [CDU/CSU])

We get to where we can do it as a Parliament. Dear Mr. Sattelberger, at this point, a little education for you: the content of The training that you have mentioned, the social partners, the chambers, the workers ‘ representative to make, but we as a policy.

(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU, the SPD and the ALLIANCE 90/THE GREENS – Dr. h. c. Thomas Sattelberger [FDP]: I already known!)

Therefore, I hope that our efforts will bear fruit and that we can work together to establish a culture of training in Germany, a culture in which training is attractive to people, in the it is, of course, and it is one of the effectiveness of the training convinced. At the end of the day, we want to have no negative statements in front of us, but an equation, namely: desire for training is the same desire for the future.

Thank You Very Much.

(Applause from deputies of the CDU/CSU and the SPD)
