Education for Equity

BildungsWerk in Kreuzberg (BWK)

BildungsWerk in Kreuzberg (BWK), Berlin, is a training company founded in 1983. Its mission is to support disadvantaged and underprivileged groups, with emphasis on young people with foreign backgrounds. Often these young people have had fragmented schooling and have difficulty entering the labour market. The BWKs provides participants with vocational and social qualifications that will enable their integration into working situations and society a whole.

In cooperation with industry associations, employers and public bodies, BWK runs vocational courses, educational guidance and counselling support for young people. BWK is also involved in various local and international development projects in the field.
