Continuing education funding 2020/2021

Education Funding Germany BMAS

Good news to all those who applied for Bildungscheck 2020 (education voucher) but could not claim it due to the restrictions in the course of the pandemic: This year's Bildungscheck is still valid in 2021! In addition, it is still possible to apply for this year's Bildungscheck now and also for next year's voucher, so that two further training courses in 2021 are eligible for funding.

Moreover, in October of this year, the "Gesetz zur Förderung der beruflichen Weiterbildung im Strukturwandel und Weiterentwicklung der Ausbildungsförderungen" (Law on the Promotion of Continuing Vocational Training in Structural Change and the Further Development of Training Subsidies) was updated. Accordingly, the basic subsidies will be increased to make further training more accessible to companies of all sizes.
