Professional development is, more than ever, a key factor in the global and digital world we work in. This is true for all areas, with people already in employment undergoing training for new tasks, job seekers improving their chances of finding work, and companies investing in their future. The federal and state governments of Germany have recognized this trend and your training can now be subsidized by up to 100%.

Berlitz makes it easy for you to take advantage of government funding programs, because we’re more than familiar with the labyrinth of funding opportunities and training options – and we know how difficult it is to work out what to do next. Enjoy the full benefit of our many years of experience in this area, plus our expertise as an ISO-certified educational institution.

Berlitz – the ideal partner for subsidized continuing education

In tune with modern times: Our training program

State-funded language instruction. Berlitz specializes in flexible and efficient language training, with course content tailored to specific job profiles. From business English to commercial German, we offer a whole host of training options, courses of different sizes, and a variety of flexible training formats. Learning a foreign language is particularly appealing right now, with numerous funding opportunities to choose from, such as the education voucher (Bildungsgutschein) and the AVGS program (Aktivierungs- und Vermittlungsgutschein).

Subsidized business seminars. One skill will be particularly important in the future for professionals working in specialist areas and management – especially given the course of digital transformation: the ability to adapt to new ways of working. Employers are looking for people with a good grasp of agile thinking methods, time management, and project management, plus English communication skills across different cultures and regions. Our solution to this: continuing education based on our Work 4.0 for Professionals and Executives program.

Subsidized courses on digital skills. These days, many professions require quite specific digital skills and knowledge. To answer this need, Berlitz has extended its offering to include Digital Skills in IT, a new, modular training program. Our interactive live online seminars allow you to deepen your know-how in areas such as data protection, IT service management, and web development – and simultaneously improve your English skills in the world of IT.

FAQs on subsidies offered for professional development programs

There are very many subsidy options, for both private individuals and companies. Not only does the German Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit) offer attractive funding programs, but so do the individual federal states and the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). On the one hand, this is extremely satisfying, but on the other hand, there are so many options that it’s difficult to work out where to start.

That’s where Berlitz can help. We have a team of experts on subsidized continuing education. They specialize in establishing whether you’re eligible for funding and working out the right training program for you. By the way: All advice we offer is completely free of charge and with no obligation on your part.
