Hallo Community,
kennt sich wer mit Arbeitsrecht aus, genauer mit betrieblichen Einzelumschulungen (vom Arbeitsamt geförderte Umschulung)?

Ich könnte in einer Gärtnerei eine Ausbildung machen, wenn diese vom Arbeitsamt gefördert wird. Dies wurde mir aber vom Amt abgelehnt, da mein Studium nicht lange genug her ist.

Hier steht das anscheinend: sozialgesetzbuch-sgb.de/sgbiii

Bin etwas ratlos, wie ich da vorgehen könnte.
Danke für jeden Tipp!

I will tell you that blowing a kiss at drivers who’ve just flipped you off makes them lose the entirety of whatever’s left of their minds, though. Like magic.

One of the lessons burn-out is trying to teach us is that SOMETHING needs to change. Ignoring it and thinking things will get better is a recipe for hurting yourself in ways that are much more painful to recover from than they need to be.

If you're feeling burned out, listen to that message and figure out ways to make a change for the better. Maybe it's not a new job, maybe it's just some exercise and a change in your work habits or schedule, but DO SOMETHING. TRY SOMETHING. Just kinda deciding to ignore it because you have too much work to do is madness.

After 2 years and almost 6 months ( less 2 days ), we have finally released version 1.2 that has been waiting to be released to the world for 1 year and 2 months.

The new release features over 50 new icons ( forkaweso.me/Fork-Awesome/what )

This is only the beginning of our work. There is a lot more to go from here and much more to achieve. We are excited for this new journey.

For about 6 months, I'm the leaser of a Kleingarten ('Small garden', popular in former East Germany with a socialist history)

I now have a deeper appreciation for the use of 'grassroots' in an activist context: not only growing 'bottom up', but surprisingly hard to rip out.
