Bildungsurlaub Recognition is an educational leave. It is when a German company give an employee 10 days of vacation to study, not classified as part of their annual leave.
In Germany, depending on the federal state, full time employees can apply for up to 10 days of educational leave within two calendar years. Workers can choose what they’re going to study, as long as it’s something which will benefit the company. Many airline companies encourage employees to apply for Bildungsurlaub (Luftansa, KLM, etc). These airline staff usually need to learn Portuguese if they are flying in and out of Brazil.
