Match Talent can help you find the perfect educational programme to suit your career goals
Match Talent has your talents in focus and is a trusted partner to access government-funded educational courses in Germany. They specialise in simplifying the often intricate bureaucratic procedures that come with applying for a government-funded programme, guiding you towards the ideal course to advance your career.
What is Match Talent?
Match Talent, a new initiative developed by the online language school Lingoda in collaboration with Kiron, serves as a career centre dedicated to facilitating the perfect match between international talents and high-quality educational programmes. Within their offerings, you can select from a diverse range of professional courses.
How does it work?
The Match Talent team assists candidates in acquiring a "Bildungsgutschein" provided by the German government. A Bildungsgutschein is an educational voucher granted to eligible individuals, enabling them to participate in government-supported educational programmes. These programmes not only jump-start your career but also help you secure a suitable job in Germany.
If you currently reside in Germany, are between the ages of 24 and 55, are unemployed or soon to be unemployed and are registered or in the process of registering with the Agentur für Arbeit (Jobcenter), you may be eligible to apply for a Bildungsgutschein.
The Match Talent process
Match Talent offers its career counselling services free of charge. Their team assists you in finding the ideal course that aligns with your background and interests. Moreover, their team will help you to refine your CV and craft a compelling motivational letter for job applications.
Once you have secured your appointment at the Agentur für Arbeit, you can also take advantage of their Buddy Programme. This unique initiative pairs you with a German-speaking buddy who accompanies you to your Jobcenter appointment, offering in-person support and assistance with translation as needed. The Buddy Programme is available in various cities across Germany.
