IQ Good Practice

The current funding period 2019–2022 of the Network IQ involves approximately 380 different subprojects belonging to three priority areas: "Counselling on Credential Recognition and Job Training", "Bridge Training Schemes in the Context of the Recognition Act" and "Development of Intercultural Competence". These projects aim to integrate people from a migration background into the labour market. One of the main concerns of these activities is to ensure that professional qualifications acquired abroad lead to employment appropriate to one’s level of education, regardless of residence status. The actors, methods and strategies involved in these projects are highly diverse. In order to highlight different approaches and successful case studies, this website will publish examples of "IQ Good Practice" that stand out due to their innovation, sustainability, and transferability.
