Why is it Free?

Our four week certified compass course is not free – instead spots within the course are kindly sponsored and paid for by the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter & the German Government. All you need is an education voucher ‘gutschein’ to get started.


Our certified course provides you with an orientation to the German job market with a focus on digital jobs and careers. We work alongside the Federal Employment Agency to help you discover and decide on a skill stream that both suits you. It is designed to help you discover your interests before you join a specialised training program with a partner academy or bootcamp.

We equip jobseekers with in-demand skills and information to help them make the decisions that are best for them as they begin the journey towards their dream career.
