State Educational Grant
For more than 10 years we have been training tour guides according to the EU standard. As a company that is certified to EU standards and can demonstrate high quality standards, we are entitled to accept State Educational Grants issued by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
This page tells you if you are eligible and how you can check it immediately. If you submit your State Educational Grant to us, you save up to 50% of the seminar costs.
The federal program State Educational Grant is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the European Social Fund.
If you are working (employed or self-employed) and do not exceed a certain income limit, you are in principle entitled to an educational grant. By answering only four questions, you can use the following link to check whether you are eligible. If so, make an appointment with a counseling center and specify your education goal either the – professional – induced increase in knowledge of Berlin or the training to become a certified tour guide. Please note that appointments at counseling centers may be available on a long-term basis only, and that the further education objective indicated on the award voucher matches the seminar booked with us.
As soon as you have received the education grant from the counseling center, you can register for our seminars online at any time. Then send the original voucher by post to our company address or bring it there personally without prior appointment. On our bill, you will then see that the education grant was deducted from the seminar costs.
Please note that the education grant can only be used as follows:
* If you only register for the City Explorer Seminar, you pay only 50% of the seminar costs and therefore € 49.50 per month instead of € 99.
* If you sign up for the City Explorer and City Guide Seminar at the same time, the costs of the two seminars will be added, of which € 500 will be deducted and the remaining amount will be paid in eight monthly installments of € 123.13 each.
* If you register for the City Explorer Seminar and the following year for the City Guide Seminar, the education bonus can only be credited towards the first part of the course, i.e. the City Explorer Seminar. This means that the City Explorer Seminar costs € 49.50 and the City Guide Seminar costs € 99 per month.
