Continuing education in the Federal Office

The Federal Office is offering its employees the opportunity to make themselves "fit for the future". The challenges of globalisation, worldwide migration and diverse cultures living together can be mastered only with life-long learning, knowledge and intercultural skills.

The aim of continuing education

At the forefront of continuing education are the subject areas connected with asylum, integration and immigration. Every single member of staff and thereby the Federal Office as a whole is to be made "fit for the future". This means lifelong learning and dealing with diversity within the framework of European integration, globalisation, worldwide migration and interaction of cultures. The continuing education programmes are also intended to help employees identify with the Federal Office, increase their work skills and improve the cohesion and flow of information between different departments.

Continuing education programmes

The courses include:

  • Foreign language tuition after work, and support of language courses provided by external providers in the Federal Office's branch offices
  • Lunch-time events on current in-house issues
  • Specialist lectures on countries of origin or subjects concerning integration and inter-religious dialogue
  • Exhibitions on specific subjects relating to immigration
  • Initial training sessions, e.g. on asylum law or about topics concerning integration
  • Support for visits by specialist exhibitions/museums and for visits, e.g. to mosques and synagogues
