Description

Purpose

Literacy courses for asylum seekers, tolerated persons and recognized asylum seekers (residence/ordinary residence in Bavaria of less than two years) are funded.

Recipients of funding

Eligible costs

  • Cost item 1: 35 euros (flat rate) per proven teaching unit (= 45 minutes).
  • Cost item 2: Per proven project leader hour (= 60 minutes) 40 euros (flat rate). Depending on the size of the course (100, 200 or 300 teaching units), a maximum of 20 project leader hours per course can be funded.
  • Cost item 3: 35 euros (flat rate) for socio-pedagogical support per proven teaching unit. Depending on the size of the course (100, 200 or 300 teaching units), a maximum of 50 additional teaching units per course can be funded for socio-pedagogical support.

  • Cost item 5: Indirect costs are eligible for funding at a flat rate of 12% of the direct costs (cost items 1-4).

Type and amount

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

Prerequisites

  • The target group includes all foreigners over the age of 15 who are entitled to benefits under Section 1 of the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act (AsylbLG), as well as all recognized asylum seekers who have been resident or ordinarily resident in Bavaria for less than two years.
  • If there is actually other access to literacy courses, in particular to special integration courses, these offers are to be taken up with priority.
  • If a participant has access to school-based educational offerings, he or she may nevertheless be a participant in a literacy course, provided that this does not interfere with participation in the school-based offering. This model project is to be used by the target group defined above with priority over the support program "ALPHA+ besser lesen und schreiben" 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 recipient of the grant must submit a concept that corresponds to the general intentions of the grant project and possibly takes into account special local conditions with regard to the course participants.
  • A course is only eligible for funding if there are at least five participants.
  • A course is to be designed for 100, 200 or 300 teaching units of 45 minutes each, within this framework the learning and performance level of the participants is to be assessed. Up to 15 percent of the instructional units may be delivered using alternative learning methods (e.g., online format). If the course includes lessons to compensate for deficits in basic education in mathematics and economics (e.g. handling money), these must be held as part of regular lessons.
  • The 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 the basic education or language area.
  • The grantee must keep a class register and list of participants.
