German for Professional Purposes
(ESF-BAMF Programme)

People from a migrant background can avail of job-related German language courses, linked to elements of continuous vocational training, and thereby improve their opportunities in the labour market. The scope of the programme ranges from classic language tuition including specialised job-related vocabulary to actual internships in companies. By meshing job-related measures to strengthen language skills with integration courses under the Residence Act, valuable new components are added to the Federal Government's basic support portfolio. The assigned education providers are required to build partnerships with local business enterprises to arrange work placements but also with a keen eye to the integration of individuals into training or employment.
