"Integration through Qualification (IQ)"

Looking abroad - "IQ Good Practice International"

European countries glance at IQ Network’s work and find inspiration. With its publications series "IQ Good Practice International" the Network IQ returns the gaze and aspires to look beyond the horizon. This format highlights outstanding international labour market integration approaches that are suitable for transfer to Germany and other European countries.

Good Practice examples are intended for all IQ stakeholders, such as the regional networks and competence centres, as well as for (inter)national stakeholders outside the Network IQ, such as employment and training administrations, educational institutions, companies and enterprises, as well as for labour market and integration policy makers. Four criteria turn projects into good practice: transferability, innovation, sustainability, and efficiency.

  • Transferability: The Good Practice example can serve as a model for new projects and is as flexible as possible with respect to other national contexts.
  • Innovation: The Good Practice example responds to current labour market challenges with a new and creative idea.
  • Sustainability: The Good Practice example is sustainable in terms of its structure (long-term, continuous) and its results.
  • Efficiency: The expenses (personnel, time, costs, etc.) are proportionate to the successes. Also, the practical application of the good practice saves time and money.
