For several years, Caritas Luxembourg has offered classes which refugees and migrants can attend alongside other students. These classes are intended to facilitate the social integration of refugees and migrants and open up new perspectives for them.
Language support classes for adults
Language support classes for adults are offered in Luxembourg-City. Most of the students who attend these classes are already taking language classes provided by other training bodies. Nevertheless, they come to Caritas Luxembourg for six hours a week for personalised support with their homework and very useful conversation workshops.
Training courses at the Centre Oasis
For around twenty years, Caritas Luxembourg's Centre Oasis in Wiltz has offered a similar range of training courses. As well as being a truly open drop-in centre, the Centre Oasis organises a whole range of activities:
- Accredited language courses, at different levels and in different forms,
- Civics courses and in-depth modules for people who have signed a "Contrat d'Accueil et d'Intégration" (CAI) with the Integration Department of the Ministry of Family Affairs, Integration and the Greater Region,
- Thematic information sessions that promote the autonomy and integration of non-Luxembourg residents.
The 5th integration classes for adults (formerly called "Classes Passerelles")
Caritas Luxembourg, in collaboration with the adult education department of the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth, runs the 5th year integration classes for adults. These classes now include the "Classes Passerellles" that Caritas Luxembourg had set up so that young refugees and migrants who no longer enter compulsory schooling or who are excluded from the traditional system have the opportunity to be trained. Today, these students are finally recognised and supported by the Ministry, through the 5th year integration classes for adults. About ten classes are in place in Luxembourg-Kirchberg. Caritas Luxembourg continues to support these young people in their socio-professional integration and, in the end, their integration in Luxembourg, by offering them a range of support services linked to training.
