Bildungsurlaub (Educational Leave) is the right to up to 5 days of further training for German employees during working hours – every year.
So if you work in a federal state with an educational leave law (that’s all except Saxony and Bavaria), you are basically entitled to it. Your employer will continue to pay the salary – and of course the educational leave will not be counted towards the recreational leave. Unfortunately, there is no educational leave for civil servants.
BLC International is recognised in the following states:
