Parents are normally important sources of advice for their children at the transition from school to work. However, parents from a migrant or refugee background are frequently unfamiliar with the German education (and training) system. Attempts have been made in Hamburg to find ways of assisting them so that they can support their children. The key question posed was how to reach this target group in as accessible a way as possible. The response found by the Hamburg Youth Employment Agency was to join forces with the KAUSA Coordination Agency for Training and Migration in Hamburg to develop a series of digital parent evenings staged in multiple languages.
