Literacy courses for asylum seekers; application for funding

The Free State of Bavaria is funding literacy courses for asylum seekers as part of a pilot project.

Description

Prerequisites

  • The target group is all foreigners aged 15 and over who are entitled to benefits in accordance with Section 1 of the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act (AsylbLG); also all persons entitled to asylum, recognized refugees, persons entitled to subsidiary protection, persons with a residence permit in accordance with Section 24 of the Residence Act or a corresponding fictitious certificate and persons with a residence permit in accordance with Section 22 of the Residence Act or a corresponding declaration of acceptance by the Federal Republic of Germany who have been resident or ordinarily resident in Bavaria for less than two years (narrow target group).
  • If there is actually access to literacy courses elsewhere, in particular to special integration courses, these courses should be given priority.
  • If a participant has access to educational opportunities at school, they can still take part in a literacy course, provided that this does not affect their participation in the school course. This model project is to be used by the target group defined above with priority over the "ALPHA+ besser lesen und schreiben" (ALPHA+ better reading and writing) support program of the StMUK.
  • Persons from safe countries of origin according to § 29a AsylG and Annex II to the Asylum Act are not eligible to participate.
  • The funding recipient must submit a concept that corresponds to the general intentions of the funding project and takes into account any special local circumstances with regard to the course participants.
  • A course is only eligible for funding if there are at least five participants.
  • A course must be designed for 100, 200 or 300 teaching units of 45 minutes each; the learning and performance level of the participants must also be assessed within this framework. Up to 15 percent of the teaching units can be held using alternative learning methods (e.g. in online format). If the course includes teaching units to compensate for basic education deficits in mathematics and economics (e.g. handling money), these must take place as part of regular lessons. Exceptionally, for the funding period 01.01.2023 to 31.12.2023, it is possible to conduct up to 30% of the course using alternative teaching methods (online format).
  • Teachers must have a degree in education or a degree in "German as a second language" or "German as a foreign language" or professional experience in basic education or language teaching.
  • The funding recipient must keep a class register and list of participants.

Procedure

The Government of Lower Bavaria is responsible for the implementation of the project as well as the approval, proof of use and reclaim procedure.

The application for funding must be submitted to the Government of Lower Bavaria in writing or via the online procedure.
