Literacy courses; application for funding

With the funding "ALPHA+ besser lesen und schreiben" (ALPHA+ better reading and writing), a financial incentive is to be offered to suitable providers throughout Bavaria for the implementation of literacy courses for adults.

Description

Purpose

The purpose of funding literacy courses is primarily to improve the written language skills of poorly literate people. The funding programme "ALPHA+ besser lesen und schreiben" (ALPHA+ better reading and writing) pursues the aim of offering suitable providers financial incentives to run literacy courses for adults who are unable to participate in an appropriate way in professional and social life due to their limited written language skills, wherever possible throughout Bavaria.

Subject

Funding is provided for literacy courses for people aged 15 and over with considerable deficits in written language skills who are resident or ordinarily resident in Bavaria. Considerable deficits in written language skills are deemed to exist if Alpha Level 3 is not exceeded in one of the main skills (reading or writing).

Beneficiaries

Beneficiaries may be legal entities under public or private law. The latter must be recognized by the tax authorities as non-profit organizations; proof of this must be enclosed with the application documents.

Eligible costs

  • Cost item 1.1: For each proven teaching unit (= 45 minutes) for the implementation of the course "ALPHA+ besser lesen und schreiben" (ALPHA+ better reading and writing), a flat rate of 35 Euros can be applied (this also includes the hours of the learning assessment or performance assessment).
  • Cost item 1.2: For each proven teaching unit (= 45 minutes) for socio-pedagogical support or general assistance for the participants, a flat rate of 35 euros can be applied.
  • Cost item 2: For each proven project leader hour (= 60 minutes), lump-sum expenses amounting to a maximum of 40 euros can be applied.
  • Cost item 3: In cases where childcare is provided during lessons or during socio-educational support or general assistance, a lump sum of 15 euros per lesson (= 45 minutes) of proven childcare can be applied. If it is proven that a second childcare worker is required, the lump sum can be doubled.
  • Cost item 4: For equipment as well as teaching and learning material, a flat rate of 5 Euros per proven teaching unit can be applied.
  • Cost item 5: A flat rate of 12 per cent of the direct costs (expenditure items 1.1, 1.2, 2, 3 and 4) can be applied for the total indirect costs.

Type and amount

The grant is awarded as project funding in the form of lump-sum partial funding. The grant from the Free State of Bavaria may amount to a maximum of 90% of the total lump-sum costs eligible for funding. The share of own funds must be at least 10%.

Prerequisites

The grant recipients must submit a course concept that takes into account at least the following points:

  • Specific initial situation on site and necessity of the project,
  • description of the course content,
  • description of the determination of the learning or performance level of the course participants on the basis of a sample form,
  • timely implementation of the measure,
  • Use of qualified personnel who must meet the following requirements:
    • pedagogical studies
    • or completed studies in "German as a second language or German as a foreign language".
    • or several years of professional experience in the field of basic education and language skills.
  • In addition, teachers need
    • a successful basic qualification in literacy/basic education (ProGrundbildung)
    • or a licence from the Federal Office for Migration for literacy courses
    • or another qualification for literacy courses.

A course is eligible for funding if at least three participants are present on the third day of instruction (cut-off date).

A course must comprise a minimum of 60 and a maximum of 200 teaching units of 45 minutes each. Up to 15% of the teaching units may be held using alternative learning methods (e.g. in online format). Insofar as the course includes teaching units to compensate for deficits in basic education in mathematics and economics (e.g. dealing with money), these must take place within the framework of regular teaching.

The grant recipient must keep a class register and a list of participants.

Procedure

The application must be submitted in writing using a prescribed form to the Government of Lower Bavaria, which also decides on the application.

Special notes

If necessary, childcare is available during classes.

Deadlines

The application is possible at any time. However, the application must be submitted at least two weeks before the course begins.

Processing time

about four weeks
