Requirements

Eligible are children and adolescents who are entitled to

  • Unemployment benefit II or social benefit according to the Social Code - Second Book (SGB II),
  • Social assistance under the Social Code - Twelfth Book (SGB XII) or on
  • Benefits under the Asylum Benefits Act (AsylbLG)

Have.

Children and adolescents whose families are also entitled to

related.

It is also justified if the need for education and participation only triggers a need for help.

The age limit for the education package is basically 25 years. By way of derogation, the consideration of needs for the education of pupils receiving social assistance under SGB XII is not tied to the age limit of 25 years.

Documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.

What are the fees?

There are no charges.

You will receive the appropriate forms from the local authority responsible for you.

What else should I know?

Schools and day-care centres should also contact the relevant authorities if they wish to participate in the education package.

Teachers and educators play an important role in the education and participation package: they know the strengths and weaknesses of the students particularly well and can give parents tips on which offers are useful for the individual child.

Schools are particularly in demand when it came to tutoring: only when they confirm that a pupil is not achieving the learning goal can parents apply for tutoring from the education package.
