Apply for support: Advanced training (AFBG)


The Promotion of Advancement Promotion Act (AFBG) aims to provide financial support to participants in career advancement training measures and to encourage them to start a business. The law is a comprehensive support instrument for continuing vocational training in fundamentally all occupational sectors in full-time or part-time form. Funding is linked to specific personal, qualitative and temporal requirements.

Craftsmen and other professionals who are looking for a training qualification

  • Master craftsmen or industrialmasters,
  • Technicians
  • Specialist clerks,
  • Specialist nurses,
  • Operational IT specialists,
  • Programmers
  • Business economists
  • or a comparable qualification

The Master BaföG (Promotion Promotion) can apply for a certificate of initial training or a comparable vocational qualification that is recognised under the Vocational Training Act (BBiG) or the Crafts Code (HwO). The condition is that the applicant does not yet have a professional qualification which is at least equivalent to the desired degree of training (e.g. university degree).

Competent authorities for receiving applications for funding and advising on individual cases are usually the offices for support for training in the districts and towns without districts at the permanent residence of the applicant.

Funding with maintenance contributions takes place from the beginning of the measure, but at the earliest from the month of application. It should therefore be applied for in good time before the start of the action. Contributions to the measure may be applied for until the end of the measure.

More information and the application formscan be found here on the Internet . The Federal Ministry of Education and Research offers a toll-free hotline for the so-called "Ascension BAföG" on the telephone number 0800-MBAFOEG or 0800-6223634.
