Learn English on the beautiful island of Jersey under the Bildungsurlaub scheme

St Brelade’s College is a recognised provider of educational leave programmes (Bildungsurlaub) in certain federal states of Germany.

If you are a German employee, you can benefit from English learning on a language trip in Jersey under the Bildungsurlaub scheme. Through this, employees can receive five or more extra days paid holiday per year.

St Brelade’s College is recognised by the following federal states as a Bildungsurlaub provider:

  • Hamburg
  • Hessen
  • Niedersachsen
  • Rheinland-Pfalz
  • Saarland
  • Sachsen-Anhalt
  • Schleswig-Holstein

The requirements for a Bildungsurlaub course (e.g. number of lessons per week, application period) vary from state to state so please get in touch if you require more information. We recommend that you check in the Bildungsfreistellungsgesetz (Law on Educational Leave) whether you meet the requirements and discuss the key points (period of time, substitution) with your employer in good time before submitting the application for your educational leave.



Provide your details and we will contact you with details of the FREE online course.
