After further training, there is often a wide range of possible applications. Good planning, implementation, and follow-up are important so that you can benefit as much as possible from what you have learned.
Would you like to learn a new language, expand your computer skills or optimize your time management? With further training, you can pursue many different professional goals. You can catch up on missing job-specific knowledge, and dare to take part in professional training or further training privately in addition to your job. A precise objective is also important for your employer to provide you with the best possible support.
If you have specific questions about the organization at the beginning of your planning, you can contact professional further training advisors, for example at the employment agencies, competent chambers, professional associations, adult education centers, or the advisors at the educational advice centers of the municipalities and districts. In addition, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research offers an information phone for further training. There you will receive advice on all questions about further education. In many companies, the staff in the HR department will also help you.
Tip: Clarify which goal you are pursuing with your further training and also involve your employer!
Depending on the type of advanced training, there are very different entry requirements, ranging from required school-leaving qualifications to language-level requirements and basic courses. Corresponding knowledge is an important basis for many advanced training courses and can easily be proven with a certificate.
With many providers, it is customary to submit proof of performance in German, which means that you have to have your certificate translated beforehand if it is not yet available in German. In the case of courses that are offered in German, there is usually no separate indication that sufficient knowledge of German (usually at least level B2) is required. You can obtain information about the required language level from the provider.
In addition, there are so-called modular courses in many areas, which consist of several courses that build on one another. This type, of course, is often used in language courses, for example. You start at a certain level and then, if the course is successfully passed, you can take part in a higher level.
Tip: Find out about the entry requirements at an early stage and check whether you meet all the criteria or whether you still need to qualify!
