Our Partners

Our Partners in Education

tricos is part of GRETA, a project aimed at developing a single cross‑institutional procedure for the recognition of competences of teaching staff in adult learning and training. The competence model allows our teachers to continuously gain new professional, didactic, and methodological skills and competences.

Our Partners in Social Matters

Our integration courses include the component of social counselling for whose purposes we are working closely with Caritas Stuttgart.


For many years, tricos has been accredited by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees as a trusted provider of occupational German language and integration courses in Stuttgart and Heilbronn, Germany.

Our partner Zertpunkt will regularly audit and certify in accordance with the German Accreditation and Licensing Regulation (“Akkreditierungs- und Zulassungsverordnung Arbeitsförderung”) the quality of our management and the quality of our premises and courses as well as the competences of our staff.

Our Partners in Administering Exams and Tests

To administer both the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) we have been able to rely on our proven partnership with ETS for many years.

Our trusted partner telc enables us to administer the “German language test for immigrants” (“Deutschtest für Zuwanderer”) as part of our integration courses as well as additional exams for German as a foreign language at levels A1 through C2.



We have been certified for many years to administer one of the most important tests in order to gain access to higher education:  The test of German as a foreign language (“Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache”)



Our Coffee Partner

The coffee for all our customers and staff members is kindly provided by Rösterei Laufenmühle.

Not only is their coffee delicious but they make every effort to ensure their product is also bio‑certified and fair‑trade and their beans come from inclusive roasting plants only.
