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

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
