Service Description

The job center can promote measures that are intended to support you in your occupational (re)integration and improve your chances of integration in the labor market. In detail, these measures for activation and professional integration have the goal,

  • To introduce you to the training and labor market and to identify, reduce or eliminate obstacles to placement that impede your professional integration,
  • to provide you with employment that is subject to compulsory insurance,
  • introduce you to self-employment, or
  • to stabilize the start of employment.

You can participate in measures with an institution or an employer.

The job center can commission agencies to carry out the measures and assign you a place to participate.

You can also receive an activation and placement voucher from the job center to register with a provider of your choice. The voucher contains information about the goal and content of the measure, which will be discussed and agreed with you in advance.

The maximum possible duration of support depends on the objective of the measure and your individual support needs and is partly regulated by law. For example, measures can take place with an employer for a maximum of 6 weeks. If you are long-term unemployed or have special placement obstacles, you can participate for up to 12 weeks.

The duration of vocational training may not exceed 8 weeks. Longer qualifications or measures that lead to a vocational qualification can be funded for adults through the promotion of further vocational training (education voucher).

The job center will inform and advise you about offers and funding opportunities.

There is no legal entitlement to this support. Your job center decides whether and to what extent you will receive support.
