Financing your language training with Brawo grants in Belgium

Financing your training for the German-speaking community

As far as the German-speaking Community is concerned, BRAWO (Berufliche Aus- und Weiterbildung-Offensive) grants support companies and individuals with their language training. They simply have to be domiciled in the German-speaking Community. The amount of these grants can cover up to a third of the cost of the training course to a maximum of €1,000 per year.

Who is this aid for?

Any natural person or legal entity domiciled in the German-speaking Community in Belgium: private companies, employees, self-employed people and jobseekers. Public sector staff, school staff, people subject to compulsory education and students are not included.

What are the practical formalities for obtaining the Brawo grants for a CERAN training course?

  • The grant application must be submitted before the training course starts to the Ministry for the German-Speaking Community (“Weiterbildungsdienst der DG” department) using the appropriate form available on the “Weiterbildungsdienst der DG” department’s website: http://www.ostbelgienbildung.be/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-2469/. The service provider provides the applicant with a quote and a detailed programme of the training course to be attached to the grant application.
    Important: If the training course is attended by more than 5 people, the application must be submitted to the Arbeitsamt, not the German-speaking Community.
  • All supporting documents must be submitted within 2 months after the end of the training course.
  • The subsidy is paid to the applicant after the training course based on complete supporting documentation
