These Integration Courses are for refugees and immigrants as well as for persons of German origin emigrating from Eastern Europe and for German citizens without a satisfactory knowledge of the German language. New refugees in Germany and immigrants may also take part in the Integration Course as long as they have a resident permit (Aufenthaltstitel) or a temporary resident permit (Aufenthaltsgestattung; Duldung). Those with a German passport are also welcome. The 660 hours of in-class instruction focus on the German language and on orientation. There are 600 hours of German language lessons and 60 hours on orientation in Germany. Here you will learn how to make friends with people in Germany, how to support your children in school, and how to fill out forms and find work. In the orientation course, participants will learn what they need to know about German laws as well as German culture and history.
The Integration Course in Berlin concludes with two exams: a test on “Life in Germany” (LiD) and the “German Test for Immigrants” (DTZ). With successful completion of this course, you will have acquired a B1 level of fluency in the German language. You will also have dealt with typical questions regarding the values of the German Constitution and the political system of the Federal Republic of Germany. In addition to the General Integration Course, there are special programmes for youths up to the age of 27, for parents, for women, as well as for those who are illiterate. Once you have obtained the certificate of the Integration Course, you can speed up your naturalisation in Germany: the waiting period will be reduced from eight to just seven years.
If you are currently taking an Integration Course, or if you have successfully completed one and are now looking for a job on the German labour market, we at BBQ Baumann & Qualifizierung can support you with individual coaching and help you to launch your career. Specialised and experienced coaches will first determine your strengths and competence. The analysis of this information leads to a strategy with the goal of taking the best measures towards building your professional career. We help you to write your job applications, and we prepare you for job interviews. Our coaches are experts in:
- Advising you on acquiring recognition for your professional qualifications
- Supporting your search for an internship, an educational programme, or a job
- Finding qualifications you can obtain to improve your career.
Once you have received coaching, you will know which professional qualification is for you. Determining your specialisation means that your specific specialised skills and current knowledge are considered. That’s the only way to find out where gaps in your knowledge may exist, and how they may be overcome. And here you can rely on our competent teachers and coaches, who will test your knowledge in the following stages:
- Analysis and documentation
- Oral and written test
- Feedback and discussion
Continuing Education / Retraining / Additional Qualifications
Even after you’ve entered the job market, BBQ Baumann Bildung & Qualifizierung is your partner and companion whenever you need to obtain additional qualifications, retraining, or continuing education. Experienced teachers and instructors will bring you up to speed and teach you the specialised knowledge you need at our Berlin location. You will thus acquire the skills and knowledge that are in demand on the labour market, and that will help you to further your career. Our coaches will also acquaint you with the specialist language of your discipline and with the knowledge of your field in the German language. You will thus be able to communicate on a higher level.
