Professionell Deutsch

The Professionell Deutsch courses of the Wiener Gesundheitsverbundes (WIGEV) and teach German as a specialist language.

The aim of the courses is to impart job-specific German skills that are tailored to the respective linguistic requirements of the job profile and build on the different levels of existing language skills.

The focus here is on oral and written communication, professional development and a culturally sensitive and biography-oriented attitude.

The courses take place during working hours and in small groups with a maximum of 15 participants. Depending on demand and possibility, the courses take place in the WIGEV facilities or online. The course costs are borne by the employer WIGEV.

The project Professionell Deutsch was awarded the Austrian Administration Prize in 2023 in the category “Inclusion, Integration, Gender and Diversity”.
