_How does a “Bildungsgutschein” work and how do I receive one?
If you are currently seeking a job and registered with the German unemployment agency called Arbeitsagentur or Jobcenter, you are able to receive a "Bildungsgutschein". The purpose of a Bildungsgutschein is to get you on track and teach you the necessary skills for a specific job. It covers the costs of the course 100%, funded by the government. You can apply for a Bildungsgutschein with your case worker ("Arbeitsvermittler") at the Arbeitsagentur. Our team will guide you along the way and offer assistance where needed.

_Do I receive a certificate for completing the course?
Yes, you will be awarded a certificate upon completion. However, the projects you work on during the year and integrate into your professional portfolio will be more important for showcasing your skills.
