About us

Welcome to the website of the LAT projects. We support refugees and employers in finding each other - through counseling, accompaniment, testing and qualification. On this website we introduce ourselves and our offers(on-site support). We provide you with basic information on topics that you will encounter on your way into employment(info pages) and report on people who have mastered important steps on their path to a (new) professional start(success stories).

Who are we?

We LAT projects are located in many places throughout Thuringia and are run by different organizations. You can find the contact details of the individual projects and a brief description via Support on site. The projects are financed by the state program Work for Thuringia - LAT for short. Our mission is to promote the professional qualification and integration of refugees, including migrants. The aim is to enable economic self-determination and participation in social life. Since the beginning of the project work in the fall of 2015, more than 13,173 people have been reached. As of 23.05.2022, 39 LAT projects with 1,452 participants* were being implemented.

As of 07/01/2022, some projects can no longer be offered. In the course of the second half of 2022, offers are expected to be added again.

Since 01.07.2022, refugees and migrants in the legal area of SGB II have access to the so-called integration and participation projects in the integration guideline of the ESF Plus Thuringia(https://www.ibs-thueringen.de/project/begleitprojekt-migration/).

What do we offer?

We offer refugees and migrants orientation and personal counseling. We arrange jobs and training positions as well as educational opportunities. In addition, there are some LAT projects that offer qualification for refugees and migrants. We accompany employers throughout the entire process of professional integration. You can contact us if you have questions about the framework conditions and preparation for employment or if you are looking for support in accompanying a trainee.

In the counseling session, we address your individual questions and needs. In this way, we can jointly develop perspectives and identify educational opportunities. We are in regular contact with relevant local network partners, so that we can provide good support for transitions to qualifications, work and training and coordinate all important issues in a targeted manner.

How do you find us?

The LAT projects are located in different regions of Thuringia. You can find a list of all projects at Support on site.
