Promotion of professional development

In addition to training, the employment agency also offers “real” further training measures, which, according to the SGB, are so-called “promotion of professional further training”. Although it has not officially existed for a long time, it is still used in the internal language of the employment agency.

How is the promotion of continuing vocational training regulated by law?

Although the division into retraining, further education and vocational adjustment already 1997 was officially repealed with the transition to the third Social Code, it exists in many places in the internal linguistic usage of the Federal Employment Agency even further - the employment consultants of that time have not yet become accustomed to the new terminology everywhere.

You can also find the names often in official brochures of the Arbeitsagentur. Finally, the division is useful in order to illustrate the promotion of further training by the Agency for Employment, various support possibilities, which coincide with the promotion of continuing vocational training.

There are three departments at the Employment Agency:

  • In a retraining you learn a new profession, so it is a kind of second education. Retraining is encouraged if you are no longer able to work in your chosen profession (eg for health reasons or because there is no job at your place of residence, but you can not move away for family reasons) and if you clearly after retraining have more chances to find a job. If you are a roofer and the doctor certifies that you can not work because of back problems, you have a good chance. These will be improved if you have previous knowledge on which retraining can build on - then retraining will be shorter and cheaper. For example, with a druggist who wants to retrain to the chemical lab technician, because then he can work in a particular chemical company.
  • Continuing education makes sense for you if you can not find a job with your previous education and therefore based on your current abilities further education need or want (as opposed to retraining, which represents a complete reorientation). This includes the businessman who wants to do his business administration as well as the journeyman who wants to take his master's examination. But also the unskilled laborer who wants to make up for it can apply for further training.
  • If, on the other hand, you have not worked for several years, for example because you have taken care of the family, you are referred to as a returnee and can get a job adjustment with which your skills and knowledge are to be brought up to date with everyday working life - after all changed a lot! The accountant, for example, who has dedicated herself to raising children for 15 years, must now first learn to use the latest software while she can continue to use her specialist knowledge. Even if the employment agency continues to speak of job adjustment separately, there is no longer any special support for target groups such as women returning to work. These are taken into account as part of the “labor market necessity”, ie if, like everyone else, you have a concrete opportunity to get back on the road and need further training to do so.

Duration

The duration of such courses varies widely and ranges from one week to two years. It depends on what is to be conveyed. Since each participant has different prior knowledge on which the further training should be based, many educational institutions no longer work with a complete course, but with "modules" that you can get in and out of depending on your previous knowledge. So you can choose exactly those parts of the training that you can use to fill your gaps. This also makes the measures more cost-effective.

You can receive further education grants if you are entitled or in receipt of unemployment benefits, ie have worked for at least 12 months in the last two years or if you receive unemployment benefit II.

legal right

However, you have no legal claim to further education or training. They can only hope that this measure will be granted to you and will convince them accordingly.
