Language courses, offers of further training

You would like to improve your knowledge of German and thus also the possibility of finding a job? There are various offers which you can make use of and which we would like to introduce to you briefly here:

Integration courses are supported by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. The general integration course comprises a language course to learn the vocabulary for everyday life (600 lessons) and an orientation course with 60 lessons, which gives information about life in Germany, culture, the legal order and the recent history of the country. The Federal Office provides more detailed

But perhaps a further-reaching language course with vocational orientation is sensible for you. You will find more detailed information about this in your mother tongue on the pages of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. The courses with vocation-related linguistic support are offered by the BIMS (Bildungsinstitut Münster e. V.)
In addition, there are specific offers of further training for migrants at the Münster Jobcenter. Inquisitive? Then contact your job coach.
