Vocational Language Assistance
You already have German language skills at B1 or B2 level, and you would like to continue developing your language abilities to improve your chances on the job and training market?
Then HAYATT’s vocational German language assistance is for you!
As of November 2016, HAYATT is certified to carry out the vocational language modules sponsored by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). These courses are designed to prepare people with a migrant background for the use of German in professional life. Building on the material of the Integration Course, the participants acquire specific (language) competencies at B2 or C1 level, which will prepare them for professional life. Each module normally comprises 300 teaching units of 45 minutes each and a concluding telc-certified examination.
It is the aim of the course significantly to improve the students’ chances of integration into the regular job market.
The vocational language courses are sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, and the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. These courses are free of charge for participants receiving benefits under Books II, III or XII of the Social Code Book (SGB II, III or XII), or the Asylum Seekers Benefit Act (Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz, AsylbLG). Employees generally pay a 2,07 € share of the fees per teaching unit. However, this may also be paid by the participant’s employer.
Requirements for Participation
Participants must have a migrant background and possess a Certificate of Eligibility (AVGS) for a Vocational German Language Course under Section 4, Subsection 1.1a/b of the German Language Assistance Directive (§4 Abs. 1 Nr. 1a/b DeuFöV).
