Italian course as Bildungsurlaub

Taking educational leave (Bildungsurlaub) means taking time off from work to continue one’s professional or political education. In Germany, employees have the right to attend a further training course without these days being counted against the normal vacation days.

The respective regulations on educational leave are designed by the individual federal states. Which educational leave law applies to you depends on where your employer is based.

Our language school has recognized seminars for all languages.

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

  • Berlin
  • Brandenburg
  • Hesse
