Qualification support

Up to full recognition of foreign qualifications

Do you have a professional qualification or degree from another country? Are you already going through a recognition process? Do you have to catch up on some training content for full recognition?

Then make use of the qualification support offer from saaris:

In a consultation meeting, we clarify your individual requirements (for example, what is included in your notice and what does it mean? How can you achieve full recognition?)

We can help you with the preparation of a qualification plan and with finding the right qualification measures. We clarify the funding options and help you communicate with authorities and educational institutions. We are by your side during the qualification measure (for example, preparation for the assessment test for doctors) or during the internship phase in the company and can help you to find internships if required.

Afterwards, we can support you in making a new application and achieving full recognition.

The following may be eligible for funding in justified individual cases:

  • Qualification measures that are necessary for recognition of a professional qualification
  • Teaching and learning materials
  • Costs of measures (e.g. health certificate)
  • Travel costs

Note: A right to funding does not exist. Each case is reviewed individually. The funding particularly comes into question for an adaptation course or an adaptation qualification to compensate for established, fundamental differences, if no other funding body provides financing.

Requirements to make use of the free offer:

  • A completed foreign professional qualification (degree or apprenticeship)
  • Notice regarding partial recognition
  • Resident in Saarland

Documents required for an optimal advisory service:

  • Notice regarding partial recognition
  • or certificate appraisal by the ZAB
  • Diplomas, references and certificates (if available, ideally with translation)

You don’t have a formal qualification? But you do have vocational experience? Then please do get in touch with the colleagues at the competence management service point.

The qualification support is part of the Regional Integration Network Saarland(IQ). The sub-project communicate with each other and pass on information relevant to the profession, whilst complying with data protection.
