Get in touch with us!


Specifically, we support you with the following services


Profiling

Together we look at your position on the labour or vocational training market. We ask what goals you have set for the future and explain how you can achieve these goals with our support. We take an initial look at existing school and work qualifications and consider with you whether your language and specialist skills are sufficient for the German labour market.

Language competences

Do you need support in acquiring language skills?

  • Persons with a residence permit can apply for an integration course designed by the Federal Ministry for Migration and Refugees. Integration courses impart not only linguistic but also basic cultural knowledge about life in Germany. You can find more information on integration courses here.
  • We offer a basic language course (level A1) for persons with a temporary residence permit (Duldung) who have not yet been able to gain any experience with the German language.
  • For persons with a temporary residence permit (Duldung) who already have basic language skills, access to job-related language courses (from level A2) can be explored. These job-related language courses are also designed by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.

Counselling on the recognition of foreign school and vocational qualifications

We examine existing school and vocational qualifications and the associated potential. We help you to use existing experience and knowledge in a meaningful and sustainable way in your job search.  Under certain conditions, it is also possible to obtain a school leaving certificate.

Counselling on the labour and vocational training market

We provide detailed and individual advice on the German labour and vocational training market. You personally are at the centre of this counselling and together we will explore opportunities to create a sustainable perspective for life and work.
