The Federal Employment Agency supports people who are undergoing further training or retraining. In this context, the employment agency or job center assume certain costs incurred by training courses or courses. The exact benefits are determined in advance.
The prerequisite for an education voucher for both unemployed and employed people is that further education or retraining is necessary. This is the case, for example, if people can thereby end their unemployment, employed persons can avoid impending unemployment or can catch up on a vocational qualification.
Each education voucher is only valid for a limited period of time and only at approved educational institutions. More information can be found on the website of the Federal Employment Agency.
The education voucher is only available after a personal consultation at an appointment at the employment agency or job center. During the consultation, it will be checked whether the requirements for an education voucher are fulfilled and which subsidies are most helpful for the respective further education or retraining.
