The demand for skilled domestic workers on farms with agricultural tourism, direct marketing, rural gastronomy, and other agricultural service is increasing steadily.
The new regulation of vocational training in the field of home economics has been completed with the publication of the amended training ordinance in the Federal Law Gazette. The German Farmers’ Association (DBV) has pointed this out.
“The new regulations for the housekeeping profession open up new opportunities and design options for dual training in companies and in vocational school lessons,” emphasized the association’s vice-president and chairman of the DBV education committee, Werner Schwarz. It is a success for the “rural” sector that a new focus “rural-agricultural services” has been created.
Housekeeping is not just limited to cleaning the home or washing. Housekeeping is the supervision of obligations and tasks needed to run a household. This includes home maintenance, cleaning, cooking, shopping, and even bill payment. These days housekeeping education is needed as a result of new technologies and developments.

The demand for skilled domestic workers is not only increasing against the background of changing social and demographic conditions. Qualified specialists are also being sought in farms with agricultural tourism, direct marketing, rural gastronomy and other agricultural service focus, reported Schwarz.
In the future, these companies could include relevant professional skills more closely in vocational training and train prospective skilled workers even more specifically for the increasingly differentiated labor market. In addition, the content-wise updated, structurally adapted, and in the examination area redesigned dual vocational training of housekeeping could bring new impulses into the training practice, so the DBV vice-president.
In addition to the training companies, the vocational schools and the regional bodies responsible for vocational training with their training advice and the examination boards are particularly challenged in the implementation.
Interested companies and training institutions should, according to Schwarz, now systematically and systematically tackle the implementation of the amended vocational training so that significantly more young people choose this profession, “which has a lot to offer”. The new regulations will come into force at the start of the next training year on August 1, 2020, and will replace the previous training regulations.
