Förderprogramm „Integration durch Qualifizierung“ (IQ)

IQ Network Baden-Württemberg

The IQ Network Baden-Württemberg is a part of the funding program ″Integration through Qualification (IQ)″, which is supported by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (BMAS) and the European Social Fund (ESF). Our objective is to improve the integration of adult migrants into the labor market. Since 2011, we’ve been offering counseling and qualification services together with local, regional and nationwide partners, and promoting the networking of partners in the labor market. 

The IQ Network Baden-Württemberg is comprised of 29  operational partners, who are working in altogether 38 sub-projects. In addition, our network cooperates with a wide array of strategic partners at a national and municipal level. 

Our work is divided into four core areas of action:

We give information and advice in our ″counseling centers for the recognition of foreign professional qualifications″ concerning all issues for the recognition of foreign certifications/degrees. Our counseling centers are located in Freiburg, Mannheim, Stuttgart and Ulm. We also support access to qualification measures in our qualification counseling if they are required for full recognition, and provide information about funding opportunities.

The ″counseling centers″ is a joint offer of the IQ Network, the state (Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration Baden-Württemberg) and the League of Non-Statuary Welfare Baden-Württemberg.

With the project mira – Mit Recht bei der Arbeit (Your rights at work)", we provide counseling on social and labor law issues for refugees and third-country nationals. ″mira’s″ offices are located in Karlsruhe und Stuttgart.

For full recognition of or admission to the profession, adaptation measures, preparatory courses for assessment/knowledge tests or bridging measures are often required. We offer these measures in numerous professions and support as well as accompany the participants in accessing employment that is a good match for their qualifications.

We provide counseling, support and needs-oriented training programs for labor market institutions that aim to open up interculturally or broaden their migration-specific competencies. We assist small- and medium-sized enterprises in winning over and further developing migrant specialists and with regard to intercultural opening-up processes.

The best prerequisites for successful integration processes for specialists from abroad are needs-oriented counseling and support offers – for the specialists themselves and for the companies, too. Over the last few years, many players in Baden-Württemberg have recognized skilled workers abroad as a key target group and adapted their offers accordingly. The Skilled Workers Immigration Act will trigger further dynamics. We aim to contribute to the creation of networks of specialists in the various regions or the further development of existing ones in order to optimize networking and interlinking processes.

You’ll find all of our offers in the Network Overview. The IQ Network Baden-Württemberg is coordinated by Interkulturelles Bildungszentrum) Mannheim gGmbH (ikubiz).
