Education at the Goethe-Institut

To create access to education is one of the central purposes of the Goethe-Institut. As a leading provider of German courses and programmes for German teachers, we also offer training and advanced training for artists, actors in the areas of media and information & libraries, in the creative industry, EU officials and municipalities, employees of German and international business enterprises, cultural managers, and for children and young people.
In addition to modularly structured and certified training programmes, the Goethe-Institut works with informal formats, including master classes for artists, network meetings for activists and workshops for various cultural professions.

Projects of cultural education worldwide


The international project Schulwärts! (i.e. School Caretakers!) offers student teachers and young teachers from Germany the opportunity to gain international experience in a two to four month internship and strengthen their intercultural skills. The students give the pupils and foreign teachers where they are staying a picture of contemporary Germany and get the chance to shape their teaching independently and organise extracurricular projects and events.
