Spanish course as Bildungsurlaub

Educational leave (Bildungsurlaub) is time off from work for the purpose of continuing professional or political education. Employees in Germany have the right to attend a further training course without these days being counted against the normal vacation days.

Since education is a state matter in Germany, there are separate laws on educational leave for each of the federal states, and the conditions attached to educational leave also vary somewhat from state to state.

Which educational leave law applies to you, depends on which federal state your employer is based in. Our language school has recognized seminars for all languages.

Among our Spanish courses, the intensive course is recognized as educational leave in the following federal states:

  • Berlin
  • Brandenburg
  • Thuringia
  • Hesse
  • Rhineland-Palatinate

Registration for your Spanish course as educational leave

According to the Bildungsurlaubsgesetz, you should apply for educational leave to your employer six weeks before the course starts. Up to two weeks before the start of the course, your employer must then decide whether to grant the educational leave. In the case of a refusal of your application, you have the possibility to fully cancel your course without any charges. At the end of your Spanish course, you will receive a certificate from us confirming your participation in the educational leave to your employer.
