Bildungsurlaub Accreditation

We proudly announce that ELC has received the Bildungsurlaub accreditation from the following German states:

  1. - Berlin
  2. - Brandenburg
  3. - Bremen

This accreditation entitles employees in Germany to get an additional 5 days of annual leave per year (or 10 days in 2 years) from their employer if they use it for professional or personal development purposes, such as:

  • Language studies
  • Workshops or evening studies to improve work-relevant skills
  • Political workshops or conferences

Only recognised schools and courses can be offered as Bildungsurlaub. All providers must comply with the rules and quality standards of each individual German state. For more information, please contact us today!
