Education voucher

Continuous training is an essential prerequisite for employees to be able to cope with constantly changing tasks and to constantly develop new solutions in the interest of the customers. Financial support for further training is provided by the education cheque. The team at the Münsterland Regional Agency and many other counselling centres in the region issue the education voucher in a personal meeting and provide information about suitable offers. Both employees and companies can apply for the education cheque.

With financial support from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the European Social Fund:

  • Updating or expanding existing professional qualifications
  • Further training in learning and working techniques
  • Courses for media education
  • Further training courses that are missing in order to obtain a training qualification
  • Further training courses that are required to obtain recognition of vocational qualifications acquired abroad in a further training occupation
  • CET courses that are missing in order to obtain a certificate of competence or expertise
  • Continuing vocational education and training courses

All qualifications can be completed as face-to-face seminars, e-learning courses or in-house seminars.

  • 50 per cent of the course costs, but a maximum of 500 euros per education voucher
  • Companies with fewer than 250 employees can apply for up to ten education vouchers per year.
  • The main target groups are employees, people returning to work and the self-employed with a taxable annual income of 20,000 to 40,000 euros (40,000 to 80,000 euros in the case of joint taxation). They receive a maximum of one education cheque per year.
