Nutrition: enjoyable and healthy at work

Healthy eating and shift work don’t go together? Shift work, especially the night shift, throws the body out of sync. You often hear this from people working in the care sector.

A balanced diet leads to improved well-being, prevents numerous illnesses and strengthens the immune system. A healthy diet makes us feel good, productive and satisfied.

But how can a healthy and enjoyable diet be implemented in everyday working life in the care sector? We would like to show you what is important:

Tips and tricks for a healthy diet in shift work
Alternatives to snacks and fast food
Inspiration for a healthy diet with few ingredients and little time

Integrated language support and understandable language in day-to-day care work

Linguistic stumbling blocks are often the cause of misunderstandings in conversations, work instructions or agreements. How can such misunderstandings be recognized and resolved as early as possible? What possibilities are there to prevent linguistic errors in dialog? These questions are at the heart of this interactive workshop: Using authentic examples – also from the participants’ day-to-day work – we will work out together which strategies, such as comprehensible language and integrated language education, can significantly support mutual understanding and, not least, language learning at work.

In addition, an outlook will be given on the prospects for specialist nursing staff to continue their professional development in further education and training in our district.

Target groups: Pupils from general education schools (registration) and jobseekers looking for a career change (please contact your local employment agency or the district job center)
