Our courses can be completely free of charge for you, as they can be financed through the Bildungsgutschein (education voucher) of the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter. Some of our courses are also supported by the Aktivierungs- und Vermittlungsgutschein (AVGS). In order to receive funding, certain conditions must be met.
What is a Bildungsgutschein?
A Bildungsgutschein (BGS) is an educational voucher that you can obtain from the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter when you are registered in Germany as unemployed. It covers the full costs for your further education course at DCI and you will not have to pay back any fees after completion.
Who can receive a Bildungsgutschein?
Anyone registered and living in Germany is applicable for a Bildungsgutschein. In order to receive one, you must first be registered as unemployed at the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter. All our courses are on a full-time basis and thus it is not possible to work while studying, with the exception of a mini-job.
What conditions must be met in order to receive a Bildungsgutschein?
The training education courses at DCI can always be 100% funded with a Bildungsgutschein if you are currently not working. For this reason, you first have to make an appointment with the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter. In this meeting with your agent, various points will be discussed, such as your current vocational training and experience, your application efforts, the content of your desired training course, and your chances of finding a job after completing the course.
Our experienced DCI Education Consultants will guide you through the whole process and help you prepare for your appointment at the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter.
What is an Aktivierungs- und Vermittlungsgutschein (AVGS)?
Just like the Bildungsgutschein, you can also obtain an Aktivierungs- und Vermittlungsgutschein (AVGS) from the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter. Unlike the Bildungsgutschein, the AVGS is first used to orientate you on the job market and does not have the direct aim of finding employment at the end of the course. Therefore, our Orientation Course and Job Coaching for digital careers are funded with an AVGS.
You are not applicable for a Bildungsgutschein?
You can still participate in our courses via CHANCEN eG or Self-financing. Whether paying for your courses with a Bildungsgutschein, getting support with an education loan, or paying your own way – We at DCI are here to help you find the best solution for you!
CHANCEN eG offers you the opportunity to subsidise the cost of your entire course. Learn now – Pay later. Once you have completed your course and found a stable job, only then do you start paying back the education loan.
If you don’t want to incur debts, you can also pay your course immediately or in instalments. Depending on the type and size of your course, different fees will apply. Our consulting team will gladly send you an individual offer.
