The concept of “qualification for Intercultural Coordination” was developed in cooperation between the Information Centre for Intercultural Education and a project with a particular expertise in intercultural projects in education and the labour market: BQM – Beratung,  Qualifizierung, Migration (“Counselling, Qualification, Migration”) and is based on the conviction that more holistic strategies are needed which connect what happens in the classrooms with changes in the organisation, with the adaptation of pedagogical contents and tools, and with the wider institutional and social environment of schools: It is the school
as a whole that needs to develop. Therefore the concept targets individual teachers – and their capacity to reflect their routines and actions and to plan and execute locally adapted changes – but also the schools that need to change or adapt as social organisations.

The way this qualification works can be found in the Hamburg casestudy: Case study Hamburg_Intercultural qualification for teachers
