Getting Started

The first step in convincing the job counselor of the need for support is to put yourself in your situation and make your point of view clear: Because, contrary to what many think, the employment agency sees itself not as a social institution but as an insurance Unemployment that “lives” from the contributions of its members and pays unemployment benefits in the event of “damage”.

Therefore, the employment agency is hardly interested in supporting people who are not unemployed and are not directly threatened by it (because in this case you are not a “case of damage”).

End unemployment

Rather, continuing education must help to quit unemployment or prevent one from becoming unemployed. The goal of further training is always to be the fastest possible and most economically advantageous measure of occupational integration. As a rule, the employment agency encourages you when your unemployment can be averted or you have no other way of finding a job than to develop.

Tip: Prove your efforts You should prove that you have tried hard to find a new job without further training. To prove this, you can, for example, For example, create a kind of diary in which you can record your activities exactly, collect receipts and the correspondence in a folder, etc.

Preparation is everything!

In addition, you should prepare yourself for the interview with the employment consultant. Investigate from home already, which further education for you in question and what you cost. Also find out if there are cheaper alternatives - eg. B. simple training or individual training modules.

The employment consultant then sees that you have thought and informed that you support him in his work and are ready to actively improve your situation. He will support you all the sooner the less effort he has with your case. So the more prepared you go to the job counselor and the sooner you know what you want, the better your chances of getting a job.

Know what you want!

Even more convincing are you, if you not only know exactly which training you would like to do, but also know some details: Find out before the interview, which options you have, what it costs, how long it takes, why this measure is suitable for you - and very important: what it brings you in the job search, or Joberhaltung!

It makes sense to choose a location in the vicinity - because with promotion you are paid for travel and stay - the lower the cost for the employment agency, the more likely the promotion. Of course, this requires a considerable amount of initiative.

Good arguments are important!

It is particularly important that you argue well in the discussion, because it is not easy to receive a grant. But with good arguments, you may be able to convince the consultant.

An example: Don't say: "I don't feel like working around anymore", that won't convince an employment consultant. However, it is better: "If I continue to work as an unskilled worker, I will soon be on the street again". Then you would receive unemployment benefits - and the employment agency wants to avoid that. Therefore, you will consider whether it is worth financing your professional qualification.

Make list, remain objective!

Make a list of all the arguments - and all the counter-arguments to test how valid your reasoning is. Act tactically as a whole: Provide the employment consultant with really good arguments why you can not do it without further education / training progress.

If it does not work: Do not try to talk hotly on the consultant, but remain calm and factual - that will bring you plus points, also with a view to later consultations. Maybe this is not the last time you have to drop by your employment consultant and even if he does not now give you further education / training - maybe later?

Tip: Change of adviser

Sometimes the chemistry between you and the work consultant is not right. Then you can go to the direct supervisor of your consultant, whom this should call you upon request and kindly ask for the possibility to go to another consultant.

You should not ask for it; actually a change is not provided, but in individual cases one can consider your wish.

By the way:

The employment agency can also help you if you are in a permanent employment relationship and wish to continue your education: the employment agency offers you an additional argument to convince your boss of the need to make a further education:

If the training is carried out during an existing employment relationship, your employer may receive a grant from the Federal Agency for your salary. He / she also receives money if he / she is able to provide you with a professional qualification and / or, as a matter of course, hire an unemployed.

  1. RS

    Based on the sentence: “You have no legal right to funding.” The employment consultants in Weißenburg in Bavaria remain stubborn and block, as in my case, the financing of the passenger transport ticket even though I have a confirmation from the employer that he will take over and hire me full-time. Contrary to the unemployment reduction, this is counterproductive. Ask for an answer.

      Hello RS, unfortunately we can not afford legal advice. Perhaps other interested parties with similar experiences can help.
      But I will take up the topic again in a journalistic way and recommend you contact Mr. Montag: https: // brainwashing-employment-agency-employment agency /

    Hello Rou,
    thank you for the useful hints. More about the education voucher is also here:

    Hello everyone,

    there are of course regulations that require the “redemption” of an education voucher. Firstly, such a voucher cannot be redeemed at will and secondly only for a specific purpose.

    As such, the educational institution must also be recognized by the BA, as is the measure (AZWV).

    The clerk who claims that I should be available for the market in such an “educational” measure told me nonsense! or how should it work if I take part in, for example, a 12-month measure (full-time) that I should still be available ????

    Well, at least the agency has built a very good search engine under its side ( there are written courses, which can be occupied with educational vouchers.

    greets rou
