Qualification grant

In the view of the Vienna Chamber of Labour, the instruments available in Austria for the promotion of further training consist of individual building blocks that are poorly coordinated, exclude many groups and are underfinanced. The greatest shortcoming is seen in the lack of a secure existence during the further training phase. For this reason, the Vienna Chamber of Labour is developing a new instrument for those willing to further their education, the "Qualification Scholarship New", which is intended to merge or replace the existing systems of educational leave, part-time training and specialist scholarships. WIFO is advising on the design of this new instrument.
