KLARTEXT e.V., Centre for Language, Culture and Professional Training, founded January 1st, 1083, is a free, independent educational institution offering courses and qualifying training for young people and adults. Our emphasis is on teaching German as a foreign or second language, on inter-cultural communication and qualifications for the job market. One part of our programme is funded by government grants to support the disadvantaged and to support integration.
The aim of our programme is to integrate students on the levels of language, to further their social and professional integration. We offer a diverse, complex programme with varied and efficient teaching methods and practical input, which is informed by the interests, needs and capacities of the students.
Our Team, consisting of administrative, teaching, training and social work staff, all look back on years of teaching and inter-cultural experience. They are equipped with the qualifications required by the Government and are committed and open to innovative ways of working, such as project work. Regular team meetings, teachers' conferences and team brainstorming sessions create an atmosphere of transparency and networking across the Centre. KLARTEXT e.V. supports its team with in-service training opportunities, supervision, fair payment and the space to show initiative of their own.
Our students appreciate us as a competent, reliable training and teaching resource that meets them with interest and understanding and offers a holistic approach to teaching by strengthening their professional, communication and methodical skills. Our cultural and leisure programmes also offer them opportunities for demonstrating their artistic, organisational, gastronomic and sports talents.
In our attractive premises, equipped to modern standards, we have created an atmosphere conducive to open and creative work. Here, learning and working becomes enjoyable, gender equality is actively promoted and intercultural exchange encouraged.
The success of our methods can be measured against agreed study goals and officially recognised final examinations.
For the continual improvement of the quality of our institution we introduced a quality management system in accordance with ISO 9000 in 2006. In 2008, we also became partners in the project organised by Munich's Council, "Inter-cultural quality development in Munich's social regions". Our achievements are regularly evaluated and documented through standardised tests, student questionnaires and statistics. The results are taken into consideration in future plans for courses.
KLARTEXT e.V. is a non-profit making institution which is managed according to principles of economic viability, market orientation, team stakeholding, common goals, professionalism and efficiency.
In our Public Relations, we present a modern, cosmopolitan profile whose aim is to convey our professional attitude, quality and service orientation.
We are engaged in continuing cooperations, keeping a professional exchange with other educational institutions, with our contractors and clients and a number of other institutions. We are a member of the Pro Integration Association, a partner in the Netzwerke Münchner Bildungsträger (Networks of Munich Educational Institutions), the network of autonomous enterprises and in the working groups Migrationsarbeit (working in the migration sector) und Intercultural Matters.
