Qualitative Info

The Nationwide Integration Programme discerns three fields of action: language integration, education and integration, and societal integration. The programme does not focus on any special groups but has a general focus.
The National Integration Plan as well as the National Action Plan (NAP) are structured by different topics that focus on specific groups as well as the general population with and without a migration background. Specific groups which are addressed by one or more of these topics are pre-school and elementary school children, women and girls, migrants in education as well as the labour market, and migrants in the public service sector (only NAP). Further, more generally addressed topics, are local integration efforts and the fields of culture, sports, the media, science, healthcare and nursing care (only NAP), and citizens’ involvement. A last topic is the enhancement of the comprehensive as well as the voluntary German language courses.
Participation in the integration course programme is granted to all immigrants whose stay is not regarded as temporary. Moreover, third country national newcomers, but also foreigners who are recipients of social benefits or have “special integration needs”, are even obliged to attend an integration course if they do not have sufficient German language skills.
