The basis of a successful integration of asylum seekers and refugees is the cooperation with relevant offerings of education and labor market, which gives the project a structuring supporting work approach.
Based on this, one main emphasis of the project is the comprehensive information through appropriate project-specific trainings in employment agencies and job centers of the assisted region, the Saxon educational agency, the local chambers and public institutions. Depending on needs, the project offers case-related support.
Another emphasis of the project is assistance on individual cases. This includes concretely first interviews, attendee management (data base), competency and resource determining, career path planning, job orientation, application training, support and company in qualifications, apprenticeship, employment relationship (Lawaetz-Stiftung 2014).
In some cases, the project cooperates with relevant special programs like the ESF-BMAS-Program, Integration through qualification (IQ) and ESF-BAMF German for Professional Purposes.
The project RESQUE CONTINUED aims the extension of networking and a wide cooperation in rural areas.
For a successful organization for the transition from school to job, informational events for job orientation and application training are conducted in the preparing classes for “German as a second language” (DaZ). Activities are based in public sensitization, intercultural awareness, public relations and networking.
The main target of RESQUE CONTINUED concerns asylum seekers, Gedultete with minimum subordinated access to the labor market and recognized refugees.
A special focus is on young refugees and unaccompanied minors, with the individual objective, to make up for a school-leaving qualification or the commencement of a school-based or in-firm training.
