    I hope that there will be a module in this course to prepare the perms for the 24/7 contractor lifestyle...

    Nah, contracting is illegal in Germany after 1/4, new labour laws say so...ANÜ
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    May I suggest a course for the other way around - contractors looking to go perm.
    You'll get a lot more takers, be providing something of real big-picture benefit, oh and reduce competition for contractors such as myself who would rather have their teeth pulled without anaesthetic than start a permanent job
