Continuing Education Counselling for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in the Saarland

Project Duration: 01.09.2015 – 31.12.2021

On behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour, Energy and Transport, the iso-Institut is coordinating an outreach and holistic continuing education advisory service for Saarland companies with up to 250 employees.

The accelerated technological and work-organisational change in companies requires the knowledge and qualification of employees to be adapted and expanded throughout their entire professional biography through in-service learning. For this to be successful, a future-oriented human resources policy is necessary. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) usually find little time for this in their daily work. They therefore need competent and independent help. This is to be achieved through a company-specific continuing education advisory service.

The counselling is carried out by a pool of independent and neutral CET advisers who use special analysis and evaluation methods to identify company-specific CET needs and develop appropriate CET measures, also in cooperation with CET providers.
