Benefits during Further Training
Education voucher; possibilities for the absorption of seminar expenses, travelling expenses, expenses for external accommodation and board, expenses for childcare; Services for livelihood
With receipt of an Training Voucher the Employment Agency certifies, among other things, that and which of the following expenses for further training are absorbed:
- Training expenses
Training expenses are fees for seminars including the expenses for study aids, work clothes, specimens and the test fees for legally regulated or generally accepted intermediate or final examinations as well as expenses for necessary aptitude testing.
- Travelling expenses
- Expenses for external accommodation and board
- Expenses for child care
- Services for livelihood
Moreover, unemployment benefit (Arbeitslosengeld) can be paid for the time of the subsided further training. The regulations for unemployment benefit apply without change also during further training.The period of entitlement to unemployment benefit is only reduced by one day for every two days of receipt of unemployment benefit during the subsidised further training. The period of entitlement is not reduced if only 30 days or less remain at the beginning of the further training. If a period of entitlement of 30 days is reached during further training, the period of entitlement is not reduced. Thus, it is secured that at the end of the further training and in case of continuing unemployment, you can still claim for at least 30 more days of unemployment benefit - if you were only entitled to less than 30 days of unemployment benefit at the beginning of the further training you can claim for this period at the most.
