What does the employment agency do?
In the context of an educational voucher, the Arbeitsagentur takes over the costs of the course. This includes learning materials and workwear as well as examination pieces and examination fees. In addition, the travel agency will pay you a flat-rate travel allowance to the school.
It is therefore advantageous if the Further education As close as possible to your place of residence, because it costs the BA less money - and your promotion is likely. If there is no appropriate action in the vicinity, you will be reimbursed for the costs of accommodation and meals. It is unimportant whether the measure takes place in another federal state; In some cases, this is not possible any other way, because certain measures are carried out in Germany only in a few places.
If you receive unemployment benefits, you will be paid for this during the training period. If you work alongside the training, the requirements will be reduced accordingly. During the training period, you are automatically insured under statutory health and long-term care insurance. If you were pension insured in the last year before the start of the advanced training, you will continue to do so, if you can not submit a corresponding application. The BA assumes all insurance. During the training and the journey you are in any case also accident-insured. If the training is carried out during an existing employment relationship, your employer can receive a grant for your salary.
You are looking for, the work agency pays!
In the meantime, the Employment Agency leaves you with the agony of choosing the right training - of course within certain limits, because the education voucher specifies the educational goal of the measure exactly.
You will be able to find an education that is exactly tailored to your needs and is not easily overpowered. However, you are on the search for a suitable further education on your own. On the vouchers, in order to prevent you from choosing the wrong, the duration and learning goal are precisely defined.
Some courses just do not take place?
Although the vouchers offer a certain freedom in the selection, but this system has a major disadvantage: were formerly courses booked and staffed by the employment office, which of course led to the fact that sometimes was put inappropriate measures, the training providers now have little opportunity to plan properly. Since it may happen then that courses are canceled due to lack of capacity shortly before the start - and that can cost you dearly, if the education voucher then expires.
An education voucher has only a period of validity of a maximum of three months. If during this time he is not taken over by a suitable training provider (for whatever reason), he declines. So take the time to ask for alternatives, if a further training fails.
