However, in order to get off to a successful start into your professional life, it is necessary to have good German skills. We teach you these skills in our German course, which we organize jointly with the funding programme‘Integration durch Qualifizierung (IQ)’ (‘Integration through qualification’).

Would you like to take part? The requirement is to have an academic degree in mathematics, information technology, natural sciences or technology, as well as the minimum of a language level of B1. Furthermore, you should report to the recognition and qualification guidance services of the IHK or be already registered there. We are more than glad to advise you by phone or in person!

The Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the European Social Fund are supporting this project within the framework of the funding programme ‘IQ’and it is also being funded in cooperation with the federal state of Lower Saxony. This German course is free for participants.

For employers

Grundbildung sichert Arbeit (GsA)

To learn something new is always possible, above all at one’s job. If you want to have a good job performance in the long run, then you need advanced language skills. You can improve these skills directly in your company by taking part in our project ‘Jobkompetenz’.

We offer this project in cooperation with the Agentur für Erwachsenen- und Weiterbildung (AEWB) (Agency of Adult and Continuing Education) in the Osnabrück and Hannover area. It is directed at employees with and without a migrant background.

The objective is to develop language and communication competences, so as to improve the workflow and the communication with colleagues in the company. The participation in the project is free of charge, both for the company and the employee.

Are you interested? Then please inform your company about our service. We are glad to answer any questions you might have by telephone or in person!
