From May 2016 the UP Transfer GmbH offers a new qualification program for academics from a migrant background. The aim of this program is to offer the participants both university and practical courses and thus prepare them for the requirements of the German labour market and a job in the field of business administration. In the qualification program not only the needed knowledge is taught, but also general skills and contacts are given, which allow a re-entry into the job market.
Participants must meet the following admission requirements:
- Migration background
- University degree abroad, preferably in the economic or legal sector or in natural sciences
- Good knowledge of the German language
- Residence in Brandenburg
The offer is also open to refugees with a residency permit or at least a subordinate access to employment (for asylum seekers with temporary residence permit or tolerated refugees from the 4th month of stay).
Integration through Qualification:
The program “Integration through Qualification” aims at sustainable improvements in the labour market integration of adults with a migration background. The program is supported by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) and the European Social Fund (ESF).
Partners in the implementation are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Federal Employment Agency (BA).
