Apprenticeship ahoy!

The program Apprenticeship ahoy is aimed at young refugees and migrants who want to prepare for professional training - in terms of language and working sectors – and would like to try out their interests in an internship.


During the vocational German courses with target level B2, you will address work-related topics: Which professions and training are to be found? Which training suits me? How does a working day look like? How do I communicate correctly at work? What makes an application appealing? How do I write a CV? Furthermore, you will develop your German skills for vocational school.


As part of our job-coaching, we offer vocational orientation, career planning and application training. Our educational guides align with your individual needs and interests. Their support includes general assistance in order to draw a career perspective and to obtain the official recognition of a diploma, preparing documents for an application and training interviews through hands-on exercises and role-playing games. In addition, they help you to find an internship in the area of your choice. Since the internship takes place parallel to the course,  you can contact us anytime with any questions.
