Apply for vocational training for people with disabilities who are fully disabled


Because of the nature or severity of your disability, you cannot, not yet or not yet be re-employed on the general labour market? Then, under certain conditions, the Federal Employment Agency promotes services in the entrance procedure and vocational training in a recognised workshop for disabled people or at another service provider.

The aim of the funding is to offer you, in particular, appropriate vocational training. Vocational training is based on the conditions of the general labour market and should be carried out as close to the company as possible or in the company. If possible, your performance should be developed in such a way that you can work on the general labour market or that you can then take up employment in the work area, for example in a workshop for disabled people.

In this development process, you will be continuously supported by workshops or other service providers by guiding, supporting, accompanying and training you. If your employment agency is the rehabilitation provider responsible, it will bear the costs.

During the entire measure, accompanying services are at your side. You provide your medical, educational, psychological and social care.

The benefits are funded for a maximum of 27 months and are divided into 2 phases: the entrance procedure and the vocational training area.

Procedure for receipt

The entrance procedure clarifies whether the achievements in the field of vocational education and training and, in the future, in the field of work will help you to participate in working life. For example, it is determined which work areas and employment opportunities are suitable for you or whether other vocational training services are also suitable for you. These findings on your performance potential form the basis for the individual integration plan, which is developed for you and with you. The integration plan contains statements on your specific support needs, on the support measures and your career prospects.

The promotion usually lasts 3 months. The funding period can be shortened to up to 4 weeks.


In the field of vocational education and training, you will receive a vocational qualification that is geared to your individual support needs. For example, you will be taught professional knowledge and skills, such as handling materials, tools or machines. This should give you the learning to carry out professional activities independently. In addition, you will be supported in strengthening your social skills and developing your personality. You can also complete all or part of the vocational training measures in companies on the general labour market, for example through an internship or on an outsourced vocational training place.

The qualification takes place both through individual measures and through training courses. You can help determine the decisions about your individual qualification path.

During the entrance procedure and the vocational training area, you are entitled to either transitional allowance or training allowance. In addition, you have health, nursing, accident and pension insurance.

If you are currently unable to work at least 3 hours a day because of your disability, you can receive funding in a workshop for disabled people or from another service provider.

In order to receive benefits in the entrance procedure/vocational training area, you must contact your employment agency:

  • Make an appointment with the vocational rehabilitation and participation team of your employment agency.
    • If you do not yet have a personal contact person in the Employment Agency, make an appointment under the free telephone number 0800 4555500.
  • In a personal conversation, you will clarify together whether benefits in the entrance procedure and vocational training area are suitable for you.
  • If your consultant determines that the funding helps you to participate in working life, discuss together the possible alternatives for carrying out these services (for example in a workshop or at another service provider, as a personal budget).
  • Your consultant will also discuss with you the forms you need to fill out.
  • The Employment Agency registers you with the workshop or with the other service provider. You will then be informed about the concrete start of your participation.
  • You have a disability and your rehabilitation provider is the Federal Employment Agency.
  • Your prospects of participating in or participating in working life again are permanently significantly reduced due to the nature or severity of your disability and you therefore need help to participate in working life.
    • Or: You are threatened with a disability with the same professional consequences.
  • Because of the nature or severity of their disabilities, they cannot, not yet or not yet be back in the general labour market.
  • It is to be expected that you will be able to carry out at least a "minimum level of economically exploitable work" following the vocational training measures.

Further requirements:

  • They have no extraordinary need for care and/or care.
  • Your social behaviour (influenced by the disability) does not endanger you either yourself or others.

When contacting your consultant, please ask which documents you need.

The processing usually takes several weeks. After the service has been approved, the aim is that the start of the measure takes place as soon as possible in coordination with the provider.
