The IQ Fact Sheet demonstrates how many persons have been reached and how many actions have been conducted federal-wide within the four IQ priority areas. These consist of IQ advice on recognition and job training, IQ job training schemes in the context of the German recognition act, IQ trainings for intercultural competence, and regional skilled worker networks – immigration. The IQ Fact Sheet at hand offers an insight into the implementation of the programme’s activities since the beginning of the second funding round and covers the period until March 31th, 2022.
The IQ Fact Sheet reviews the work of the funding programme IQ during the ESF funding round 2015 - 2018. The Fact Sheet provides central figures on the offers and services and describes the challenges in the main fields of action of the funding programme.
The advice centers established under the programme line "Fair Integration" in all IQ regional networks are assigned with advising refugees - since 2019 also third country nationals - on issues related to employment legislation, social law and rights of residence. The fact sheet "Fair integration of refugees" summarizes the current labor market situation of refugees and provides an insight into the use of the offers for fair labor market integration in the IQ funding programme for the period November 2017 to December 2021.
With the action focus "regional skilled worker networks - immigration", the IQ funding programme supports the implementation of the Skilled Immigration Act (FEG) nationwide, which came into force on 1 March 2020. The IQ Fact Sheet "Skilled worker immigration in Germany" addresses the need for skilled workers and the regulations on skilled worker immigration and describes what concrete offers the programme has developed for employers and stakeholders in the context of skilled worker immigration (e.g. job centres, employment agencies). Information on how many people IQ was able to reach with these offers in the period January 2019 to December 2021 can also be found in this fact sheet.
Many migrant women living in Germany are well qualified. They represent a great potential for the German labour market. Nevertheless, current studies show that migrant women are still underrepresented in the German labour market and do not have equal opportunities to access the labour market adequate to their educational level. The fact sheet "Labour market integration of migrant women" highlights the situation of migrant women on the labour market and shows offers of the IQ funding programme that contribute to the successful labour market integration of migrant women.
More and more people with foreign citizenship are coming to Germany to work in the healthcare sector. The reason is the growing demand for skilled workers in this sector. The IQ Fact Sheet "The Network IQ's offers in healthcare" focuses on offers for the labour market integration of people with foreign qualifications in the healthcare professions and shows how many people the Network IQ was able to reach from January 2019 to December 2021. In addition, cooperations of the IQ funding programme targeting international health care workers and medical professionals will be introduced.
It is estimated that there are between 12,400 and 13,300 active migrant organisations (MOs) in Germany that are organised as independent legal entities and are active in almost all areas of civil society engagement. They perform an important function: because their members often have migration experience themselves, they are an important point of contact for people with a history of immigration, also for labour market integration. MOs were integrated into the IQ funding programme at an early stage. The fact sheet "Migrant organisations in the Network IQ" provides an insight into the work of MOs in Germany and in IQ.
