Vulnerable Groups

With the right training for a successful future

The modern world of work presents young people with many new challenges - the multitude of possible training and career paths can be just as overwhelming as finding out your own strengths and talents.

ÖSB Consulting has supported young people for many years in various projects on their way from school or unemployment to work.

Our goals

  • Successful transition from school to work
  • Securing educational qualifications
  • Sustainable integration in the labor market
  • Empowerment of female apprentices
  • Development of company apprenticeship positions

    Many SMEs in industries with a shortage of skilled workers or apprentices are currently making far too little use of the potential of female apprentices. The proportion of women is often less than 30%. As part of the frau_kann program, we not only offer companies information on funding opportunities, but also support with recruiting and onboarding to make it easier for female apprentices to join the company.

    Our offer

    • Tailor-made advice and training on the way to becoming an attractive training company for women
    • Cooperation with schools and local institutions to attract applicants
    • Planning of company offers for girls
    • Concrete support in the implementation

    target group

    Companies that want to become an attractive training company for female apprentices
