If the conditions are right, the job centre supports migrants who would like to take advantage of professional coaching. The job centre then provides a so-called “activation and placement voucher” and covers the costs for the “Migration and the labour market” coaching, for example. This is organised by private providers. The individual advisor at the job centre knows which conditions must be met for the activation and placement voucher. However, the job centre points out on its website that there is no legal entitlement to the voucher.
The coaching programme is intended to provide help with professional development. Depending on the objectives, the following topics can be discussed in the coaching programme: Working and studying in Germany, employer expectations, application procedures and employment contracts. We also explain how to prepare application documents and what career alternatives are available. You can also learn how to best prepare for a job interview or find internships. Coaching is available as an individual or group programme.
