The world of work is changing – and you need to react
The world of work is in a state of daily upheaval: occupational fields are changing ever faster and entire industries are on the verge of transformation. In recent months, for example, Covid has fundamentally changed the restaurant and hotel industries. Many employees from these industries are now working in other fields. Not only for them the question arises, how formal qualifications can be caught up and acquired for these new jobs. After all, formal qualifications often mean a higher salary.
The situation is similar in other sectors of the economy: Electromobility, digitalization and environmental protection are opening up new job opportunities every day. While entire sectors of the economy are disappearing, others are emerging at great speed. For example, huge upheavals are also evident in the retail sector. Retail stores are disappearing from cities en masse, and a serious transformation is taking place in the online sector.
With Kursnet, the Federal Employment Agency has also created a database against this background, in which you can conveniently search for possible training, continuing education and qualification qualifications.
The great thing about this is that you can see the following very clearly here from the very beginning:
- Who offers the courses? In conjunction with Google Maps or Bing maps, you can look very closely at the ratings of each course provider. You can often also see photos of the premises via the search engines and get more detailed information on the homepages of the providers. Unpleasant surprises at the beginning of the training are thus reduced.
- What is the content of the course and where does it take place? You can conveniently look for a course that is, for example, on your way to or from work or near your place of work or residence. If you plan this way, you can use commuting time much more wisely than in the past and also make your continuing education time efficient.
- How much does the course cost and is it subsidized by the employment agency? In Kursnet you can see all the information about the costs and the possible funding by the employment agency (approval for funding with an education voucher).
Kursnet not only eliminates the tedious search for training providers in your area. The decisive factor is that all providers who are not listed in the course are also subsidized by the employment agency. So you can get your courses here cheaper or even free of charge.
In addition, the providers of courses that are not listed in the course must meet certain minimum criteria that are checked by the employment agency. So you can be sure that the courses offered here meet certain standards and you will get a quality education.
What is Kursnet of the German Employment Agency and how can I benefit from it?

Maybe as a young person you just didn’t manage to get a degree or didn’t dare to get a higher school leaving certificate? You can now catch up on it with the support of the employment agency. At work, a higher school-leaving qualification can not only result in a higher salary, but also in higher functions in the team, which increase your status in the company.

Frequently asked questions about Kursnet of the German Employment Agency

Nevertheless, Kursnet is an excellent way to start your search for further education.

I think that Kursnet’s offer is excellent, because you can easily search for suitable courses, especially in your regional environment. I had missed this before and this gap is closed with the offer of the employment agency. It is extraordinarily convenient that you can use Kursnet to simply search for a possible educational offer in your area and do not have to commit yourself to a particular continuing education program from the start.
Through such a local search, you will surely get ideas in which direction you can further qualify yourself. Maybe you didn’t even have some ideas in mind and only find them by searching here. An individual search over Google or Bing would not show here by far these possibilities as this does not go over the course.
The fact that the offers are promoted beyond that still up to 100 per cent by the employment agency is a further striking argument for the fact that you should look here once. Kursnet can also be a treasure trove for foreigners. Here you can systematically search for educational opportunities that can fill any gaps in your academic or professional qualifications.
