Bildungsurlaub allows employees in Germany to apply for up to an extra 5 days of educational leave that can be used for professional training. There must be a “minimum benefit” for the current workplace from the employee(s) taking part in the training.
Language courses are a popular option for Bildungsurlaub because employees get an opportunity to travel abroad and develop their skills in the language’s native country.
Our Bildungsurlaub programmes comprise of three components:

- Skills & Culture – 7.5 hours per week
These afternoon classes help to develop communication skills in the context of the English-speaking world and, in particular, British culture.
- Guided and supervised learning – 7.5 hours per week
