Uniteam Healthcare Services: Welcome To Germany!

First 23 Myanmar Healthcare Professional Apprentices have safely arrived in Marburg

We are proud to announce that the first batch of 23 healthcare professional apprentices from Myanmar have safely arrived in Germany.

After many months of waiting for the recognition of their national qualifications by the German authorities, the first group of apprentices recruited via our new brand Uniteam Healthcare Services safely arrived at Frankfurt Airport in August.

Representatives of their future employer, the University Hospital of Giessen and Marburg (UKGM), were awaiting them upon their arrival and accompanied the group to their new home in Marburg, where the group will stay in shared apartments for the duration of their three-year apprenticeship programme.

In cooperation with our partner Amesol, the recognition process as well as all travel preparations were smoothly arranged. Thanks to the excellent organisation by the UKGM, the registration with the immigration office in Germany, enrolment with the German social insurance scheme as well as the opening of bank accounts could be completed in just a few days.

On 1 September a new professional future began for these motivated applicants and after passing their final examination as healthcare professionals they will have many opportunities to work in the healthcare sector in Germany, including hospitals, elderly care homes, ambulant care services and many more. With an acute shortage of qualified healthcare professionals in Germany these trainees will all have secure jobs in the German healthcare sector and after some years of practice there are possibilities for a specialisation or even further studies.

We wish the first group a lot of success and have already now started to screen potential candidates for the second batch, whom we are planning to introduce to their employer for selection interviews still in October.

All going well, we shall have another group of 20–25 apprentices travel-ready by J anuary/February next year so that they can take part in a cultural awareness pre-familiarisation training and an intensive German language training programme before starting their professional apprenticeship in April 2023.

We will encourage the first group to regularly report on their experiences in Germany and will keep our readers posted on the developments of this pilot project.
