Residence permit for the purpose of training Grant for the purpose of school-based vocational training

You can obtain a residence permit for the purpose of school-based vocational training if your training leads to a state-recognised vocational qualification and the course of education at your institution is not exclusively aimed at nationals of a State. The residence permit may be issued for both qualified vocational training and vocational training which is not qualified. Qualified vocational training exists in the case of vocational training in a training occupation recognised by the State or in a comparable manner, for which a training period of at least two years is fixed in accordance with federal or national law. If these requirements are not met, it is not a case of qualified vocational training. If you are seeking qualified vocational training, you should normally be able to demonstrate sufficient language skills (language level B1). You can provide suitable language certificates for proof. Alternatively, the training company can confirm that your language skills are sufficient for the desired qualified vocational training. If you do not yet have the necessary language skills, you can attend a vocational German language course in preparation for your training. In principle, there are no requirements for language skills for the commencement of vocational training which is not qualified vocational training. As a rule, however, at least sufficient German language skills at a level A2 will be required. During qualified vocational training, you may work up to ten hours per week in an employment that is independent of your vocational training. Employment in addition to vocational training which is not qualified is not permitted. Self-employment is not permitted under any circumstances. The residence permit for the purpose of school-based vocational training is a temporary residence permit. It is granted for the duration of school-based vocational training. If your qualified vocational training is terminated prematurely for reasons for which you are not responsible, you may in principle be given the opportunity to look for another training place for a period of up to six months. Residence permits for school attendance may also be issued on the basis of bilateral and multilateral agreements between countries and public authorities in other countries.
