Is the study programme recognised according to the Vocational Training Act? Can I apply for educational leave for the study programmes at the IREBS Real Estate Academy?
Is the study programme recognised according to the Vocational Training Act? Can I apply for educational leave for the study programmes at the IREBS Real Estate Academy?

Whether educational leave can be applied for depends on two factors: Firstly, a Vocational Training Act must be in force in the federal state in which one's employer operates. Secondly, the continuing education provider must be recognised according to the criteria of the federal state.

Since Bavaria does not have a vocational training act, employees from this federal state cannot apply for educational leave. Interested workers from NRWBerlin or Hamburg, on the other hand, are generally entitled to ten days of educational leave within two years, which the employer can grant on application under certain circumstances. If you would like to know whether you can apply for educational leave and what steps you need to take, please contact our study manager Katja Bobber.
