Supported employment: Apply for an individual in-company qualification for people with disabilities

The individual company qualification within the framework of the Supported Employment is intended to offer you professional prospects for participation in working life through individual qualifications directly in the company. If your employment agency is the responsible rehabilitation provider, it will cover the costs.

Even without formal qualifications, you will have the opportunity to take up employment in the general labour market that corresponds to your abilities and wishes.

According to the motto "first place, then qualify", it goes as quickly as possible into a company. You will expand your personal skills, expand your social skills and receive further knowledge.

For this purpose, a qualification trainer is at your side. This person works for a provider who implements and accompanies your measure. Its task is also to search for the company qualification places with you. The provider has a large regional network and has many employer contacts.

The individual company qualification is divided into 3 phases:

  • Entry phase: You test professional interests and, if necessary, test your skills in one or more companies. With your qualification trainer, you will look for suitable qualification places and determine in which areas you need support and qualification.
  • Qualification phase: You will receive a practice-oriented qualification and will be trained on one or more qualification places. In addition, on project days at your provider, you will receive the cross-professional knowledge you need for your work.
  • Stabilization phase: This begins as soon as you fill the job tailored to your needs, your qualification trainer determines that you no longer need any qualification and the company holds out the prospect of a takeover. You will train your tasks and skills in detail in everyday working life and strengthen and consolidate your independence. In addition, all those involved are intensively prepared for your employment.  

How long the individual phases last depends on your individual requirements.

The individual company qualification takes up to 24 months. In individual cases, it can be extended by a maximum of 12 months. The aim is for you to obtain an employment relationship subject to social security contributions through the company qualification.

During the individual company qualification, you are insured against health, care, accidents and pensions. In addition, you are entitled to either training allowance or transitional allowance.

Process flow

In order to obtain an individual company qualification within the framework of the Supported Employment, you must contact your Employment Agency:

  • Make an appointment with the Vocational Rehabilitation and Participation team of your Employment Agency
    • If you do not yet have a personal contact person at the Employment Agency, make an appointment on the free telephone number 0800 4555500.
  • In a personal conversation, you will clarify together whether this measure is suitable for you.
  • If your consultant determines that the funding helps you to participate in working life, you will either be registered with a provider who implements the measure on behalf of the Employment Agency or advised on possible alternatives (service as a personal budget).
  • Your consultant will also discuss with you the forms you need to fill out.
  • If the date for the start of your participation in the measure has been set, you will be informed.

Requirements

  • You have a disability and your rehabilitation provider is the Federal Employment Agency.
  • Your prospects of participating in or re-participating in working life are permanently significantly reduced due to the nature or severity of your disability and you therefore need help to participate in working life.
    • Or: You are threatened with a disability with the same professional consequences.
  • You can work in the general labour market, but you need special support because of your disabilities and other measures cannot currently help you sufficiently to participate in working life because of your disabilities.
  • You do not need any special offers from a workshop for disabled people or another service provider.
