Wisamar is a non-profit education provider in Leipzig, Germany, acting in vocational, cultural and adult education. Wisamar is accredited by TÜV as education provider according to AZAV principles (employment activities for the Federal Employment Office) and also by the Office for Migration and Refugees as Integration Course Provider. In the AZAV accreditation process the quality management system is audited on an annual basis.
Wisamar works in three areas:
(Further) Education: We have several further training offers related to working life but also more informal areas. Current regular offers are Computer literacy/IT/Web programming, Internationalisation and EU Mobility, Innovative teaching methods and Storytelling in education.
As accredited integration course provider we offer language courses and other offers for people with migrant background. Wisamar is member of the Network Integration Leipzig.
One other important aspect is the labour market integration (AZAV accreditation). We offer different approaches to support the labour market integration of drop-outs and unemployed in general as well as for people that are seeking for orientation. We give competence analysis, job application training, further education and also start-up consultancy as well as courses aiming at empowerment and activation of unemployed.
Project Office: We are an experienced partner and coordinator of different EU funded projects in thematic areas such as social and labour market integration, innovations in education and culture & creativity.
EU Mobility & Mobility Consultancy: We welcome annually around 400 persons in EU mobility projects and are sending for different regional schools and companies. Our incoming and outgoing projects already received best practice awards, the German National Agency mentioned one of our mobility projects at their website as reference and our organisation as one of the official regional counselling bodies for Mobility for the German National Agency.
Besides, we serve as expert on this topic e.g. at the EC campaigns “Youth on the Move” and “We mean Business” where we gave presentations and consultancy on EU Mobility. We are coordinator of the European Knowledge Center for Mobility project (www.eu-mobility.eu) contributing to quality assurance and supporting organisations in EU mobility.
The aim of the organisation is the promotion of education, tolerance and international attitude in all spheres of understanding between different people and cultures.
