IQ handout for skilled workers from third countries in German and English

Do you come from a third country and have you applied for recognition of your professional or vocational qualification in Germany? However, does the notice say that you still need specialist knowledge, language skills or practical experience for full recognition? If so, you can complete the relevant training in Germany. A new handout in German and English explains how this works and what to look out for. It will also show you where you can receive free guidance and support. 

You can download the handout free of charge as a PDF. You can do this via the link below or via the media library in this portal. The publisher of the handout on Section 16d of the Residence Act is the Network “Integration through Qualification (IQ)”
