The different states of Germany offer individual subsidy programs, which you can use to fund training. For example, many states offer educational leave, which allows employees to take paid vacation for one week. The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) offers subsidies on German for Professional Purposes. Under the Qualification Opportunities Act, companies are also entitled to offer staff training supported by government subsidies.
