Educational leave gives employees the opportunity to take between 2 and 12 months off work and devote themselves to training and further education – without terminating their employment relationship.
During this time, the employee receives further training allowance from the AMS in the amount of the unemployment benefit. Additional earnings up to the marginal earnings threshold of EUR 475.86 per month (2021) are permitted during educational leave. There is no financial support for the training costs.

Requirements for educational leave

  • An uninterrupted employment relationship of at least six months with an employer above the marginal earnings threshold.
  • Agreement between employee and employer.
  • The employee must meet the eligibility requirements for unemployment benefit.
  • Participation in one or more educational measures amounting to at least 20 hours per week (16 hours for people with children up to the age of 7).

Application procedure

  • Clarification with the employer
  • Clarification with the AMS
    Written proof of 20 or 16 hours per week from the Cambio Beautyacademy
  • Application to the AMS
  • Most of our make-up artist training courses are suitable for educational leave.

Part-time education gives employees the opportunity to reduce their working hours by between 4 and 24 months and thus devote themselves to training and further education – without terminating their employment relationship. The reduction can be between 25 % and 50 % of the current scope of work.

During this time, the employee receives part-time education allowance from the Public Employment Service in the amount of 84 cents per reduced working hour per day (e.g: You reduce from 40 to 30 hours per week and therefore receive 10 x 0.84 x 30 (if June) = 252 euros).

Requirements for part-time education

  • An uninterrupted employment relationship of at least six months with an employer above the marginal earnings threshold.
  • Agreement between employee and employer.
  • The employee must meet the eligibility requirements for unemployment benefit.
  • Participation in one or more educational measures totaling 10 hours per week.

In previous years, the AMS often promoted individual training and further education. In the meantime, however, the financing of training in adult education by the Labor Market Service is the exception rather than the rule. Jobseekers should nevertheless talk to their responsible AMS advisor about possible funding for the course costs. However, the basic prerequisite is always a positive assessment of the labor market-related usability of the training or further training.

AMS qualification support for employees

With this subsidy, the AMS supports the costs of further training for low-skilled and older employees. Employers (not employees!) can receive this support. In addition to educational criteria, the training must meet at least 24 course hours. 50 % of the course costs will be refunded.

Further information

Expenses for educational measures such as training and further training or retraining are deductible as “income-related expenses” from the amount of your non-wage labor costs for tax purposes if they represent costs for further training, training in a related profession or comprehensive retraining. A professional connection is therefore an absolute prerequisite.

Deductible are:

  • Course costs (course fee)
  • Costs for documents, specialist literature
  • Costs for “work equipment” (e.g. pro rata PC costs)
  • additional travel costs
  • if necessary, daily allowances (for the first five days if the course does not take place at the place of residence or work)
  • Overnight stay costs

The costs can be taken into account in the income tax return, whereby employees receive a partial refund of wage tax and self-employed persons receive a reduction in the income tax payable.
