Main activity of the organisation

IB Süd runs educational facilities for professional training, qualification, retraining and further education, as well as VET (Vocational Education and Training) schools and technical colleges. It helps German and foreign young adults to promote their professional performance and to integrate into the labour market and business environment.

Experience & current activities of the organisation (in relation to TNC)

IB Süd belongs to the Internationaler Bund (IB), which is one of Germany’s largest non-profit organisations for training, social work and working with young people. It has more than 700 centres and units in about 300 locations across the whole of Germany. IB Süd runs educational facilities for professional training, qualification, retraining and further education as well as VET (Vocational Education and Training) schools and technical colleges. It helps German and foreign young adults to promote their professional performance and to integrate into the labour market and business environment. IB Süd also has extensive experience of conducting ‘Train the trainer’ courses. One of its main fields of activity is educational and vocational training, and rehabilitation for young adults at risk. Mobility experiences, particularly for youths at risk, form part of all aspects of training.

The Internationaler Bund (IB Süd) has already participated in EU funded projects. Examples of these projects include:

  • IdA (Integration through Exchange): a project conceived to help young people who are struggling to access the labour market, and to find a suitable course of training or employment for participants through transnational mobility. To achieve this goal, local welfare agencies, training and educational institutions, charities, professional associations, businesses and societies came together to work with partner organisations from across Europe.
  • Mobility Coach: a project designed to motivate young people by giving them a work placement abroad, as well as supporting the companies whilst they host their trainees. One of the project's aims was to train teachers/trainers/mentors to accompany VET students/trainees during their placement abroad through the preparation of a “Mobility Toolbox” and the creation of a web platform, where participants could download a training guide and exchange experiences of their Mobility Coaches.
  • Key to Mobility: a project concerning the identification, documentation and teaching of key competences to disadvantaged VET students through the qualification of teachers.
  • EEWOM (Enhancing Employability of Women in Minority Communities through profiling/assessment, training programs and job counseling): a project financed by the European Commission (EuropeAid) designed to improve the employability of women from ethnic minorities in Macedonia through vocational training courses.
