From educator education to social work. A plea for the networking of technical college with higher education in Protestant-diaconal educational responsibility

Access to higher education in Germany is strongly linked to the family back-ground. At the heart of its counterprogram, Evangelical diaconal education prom-ises education for all. Networked, permeable models for educators with social work counteract the opaci-ty and segregation of Evangelical educational institutions. At the same time, they make the state-sought rise through education possible. The recognition of ECTS is a first step. But it is more effective to lead the so-called “undecided” towards an academic education (EKD: “Education qualifications”) through a combination of technical college and university programs. In doing so, such networked opportuni-ties should be affordable, time-constrained and regional. The graduates of such networked programs are in high demand among Evangelical and state employers, especially for management tasks.
