Berufsförderungswerk Köln – The Vocational Retraining Centre of Cologne

Re-entering the Job Market through Vocational Rehabilitation

The mission of the Berufsförderungswerk Köln (BFW) is to open new occupational prospects to people who due to health issues, or as a result of accidents, are no longer able to do their previous jobs.

We can help you find a new occupation which takes your physical and emotional situation into account and allows you to achieve a stable working situation.  The BFW vocational rehabilitation includes the following services:

  • Support in choosing an occupation
  • Courses to prepare for the retraining
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Medical, psychological and social support
  • Individual support in re-entering the job market

Our Objective: Getting you back to Work

Our primary objective is integrating you into the job market. You will get training which is certified by the Chamber of Commerce and will provide you with a solid foundation for your re-entry. Since our founding in 1969, more than 25,000 people have started their new career with the help of the Berufsförderungswerk Köln.
