SOCIETY AND INTEGRATION

Starting a new life in a foreign country can be a major challenge, especially if you do not know the language. Some non-EU foreigners seeking a long-term residence permit in the Czech Republic are now obliged to undergo an integration and adaptation course, which should make this transition a bit easier.

The courses, which are also intended to prevent social isolation and security risk, are organized by the Ministry of Interior and provided by Centers for Support and Integration of Foreigners all across the Czech Republic.

People with disabilities receive a higher degree of protection in the labor market.

In co-operation with a person with a disability, the Labor Office will compile an individual plan for vocational rehabilitation.

Training for a job – initial training of an individual with a disability for a suitable job based upon an agreement with the Labor Office.

The training for a job may be performed with an assistant’s support. The training lasts for a maximum of 24 months.
