The impact of environmental change is inevitable, but we must contribute to minimising the consequences by reducing the use of resources, recycling, digitalisation and promoting the use of bicycles and public transport.
Corporate and social responsibility:
Commitment to respecting people and their fundamental rights, following national and international regulations.
Occupational risk prevention:
Occupational health and safety must be at the forefront of measures to achieve a suitable working environment.
Our school is recognized as a “ Bildungsurlaub ” by several German federal counties
In accordance with the 1976 federal government regulation, a employee has the right to further education. However, please check with the particular federal county in question as other regulations may apply.
Each federal county authority must recognize the language course in question, but in some cases if only one federal county authority recognizes the course, employers in other federal counties also recognize it. Please check with the company in question. After having worked 6 month in a company, all employees have to right to a “Bildungsurlaub”.
A “Bildungsurlaub” is usually 5 days per year or 10 days after 2 years. The latter is recommended for language courses.
Our school is accredited by the Swedish CSN organisation and Swedish students can apply for scholarships to study at TLCdénia.
