The Competence Centre for Work-Related German Language in the Network IQ operates at the interface of labour market, further education and second language teaching.
At both the federal and the regional level, we are dialogue partners for actors from education, administration and research. We coordinate the professional exchange between the partners involved. Moreover, we design, coordinate and support further training opportunities in the area of work-related German language training in order to ensure the quality in this field.

The Competence Centre is in constant exchange with representatives from academic, administrative and policy community. While the dialogue with academica focusses on research needs, the dialogue with representatives from the administration (for example the Federal Employment Agency or the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees) focusses on strategic objectives, such as the improvement of conditions for linguistic and professional training as well as for professional German courses. In detail, this means:
We cooperate with partners from the IQ Competence Centres and the IQ regional networks to further develop practical approaches and their transfer into the regions.
