Integration Network Training (I.N.A.)

I.N.A. makes it possible to tailor the preparation of young people for a training suitable for their wishes and skills. We worked with school students of the ninth and tenth forms of the Haeckel secondary school and the Mozart and Thüringen comprehensive schools for three years. Especially at the Haeckel and Thüringen comprehensive schools, we focused on school students with special training requirements. At the Haeckel comprehensive school, we looked after girls and boys who had school attendance problems and at the Thüringen comprehensive school, we worked with young people with special needs. A second project target group was made up of young people seeking training after completing their schooling.

Together with the young people, we found jobs suitable for them, organised internships at or outside companies and supported the personal development and application process individually. Results: 56 young women and men with completed schooling availed of the project. As a result, 35 started their desired training or a school project preparing them for such training.

78 school students took part in the project for more than 2 years. Upon completing the 10th form, a quarter of them started a training, another quarter continued their schooling at vocational training centres attending qualifying courses or repeated a school year and then received their school leaving certificate; one fifth is preparing for the university entrance level both at secondary schools as well as vocational training centres. Every sixth young person did not have a training immediately upon leaving school.

Creative suggestions for solutions and successful contents and methods for the support of careers guidance and the start of training. We use concrete examples of work with school students of forms 9 and 10, as well as with young people seeking training after compulsory schooling. And all of this presented vividly and supported by working aids.


This is a project within the framework the ESF-Programme: Partnership, Development and Employment” (PEB) Period: 01.04.10 – 30.09.12
