Measures for activation and professional integration receive

Service Description

The employment agency or job center can support measures that increase your chances of integration into the labor market. You can participate in measures with a sponsor or an employer. The measures for activation and professional integration have the goal,

  • Introduce you to the training and labor market,
  • to identify, reduce or eliminate obstacles to placement that make it difficult for you to integrate into the job market,
  • to provide you with employment that is subject to compulsory insurance,
  • introduce you to self-employment, or
  • to stabilize the start of employment.

The Employment Agency or the Job Center can assume the costs for your participation in measures.

You have two options for participating in a measure:

  • The Employment Agency can assign sponsors whose measures you can participate in.
  • You can participate in measures that are not organized by the Employment Agency. You will receive an activation and placement voucher for this. The voucher contains the objective and the content of the measure. You choose the provider yourself.

The maximum possible duration of support depends on your need for support:

  • Measures with an employer: a maximum of 6 weeks (if you are long-term unemployed or have special placement obstacles: up to 12 weeks).
  • The imparting of vocational knowledge may not exceed a duration of 8 weeks. Longer qualifications or measures leading to a vocational qualification can be funded for adults via the promotion of further vocational training (education voucher).

The employment agency or the job center will inform and advise you about offers and funding opportunities.

In principle, you do not have a legal claim to the funding.
