Diversity brought about by migration is a normal state of affairs at both general and vocational schools. Nevertheless, those who do not complete their school biography in the German education system from the outset experience disadvantage and are less likely to be successful in achieving school and training qualifications. Teaching staff are not yet sufficiently professionalised to deal with the diversity exhibited by their learners because of migration, and new migrants have only added to this diversity over recent years. This article highlights the requirements made of teachers and illustrates possible ways in which their training can better prepare them.
