Approved support measure according to AZAV

learning fields

According to official publications, there is a shortage of more than one hundred thousand specialists in geriatric and nursing care in Germany. Workers from abroad can reduce this shortage, but they must also have good general language and job-related language skills in order to be professionally integrated into a care sector. Through our action-oriented, practice-oriented lessons and the accompanying practical activities, the participants are specifically prepared for topics of their later professional work in terms of language and content. For more than 15 years, the Eduard-von-Hallberger-Institut has been offering language and technical courses to prepare for subsequent university studies and later professional training or work in Germany. Language courses and language tests for naturalization can also be completed at our institute.
