The aim of the funding is to pass on newly gained scientific knowledge and to contribute to the further development of pedagogical work in Bavarian day care centers for children.
Eligible for funding are training measures that are relevant to the pedagogical work and operation of a daycare center and, in particular, support the implementation of the Bavarian Education Plan, including the handout "Education, upbringing and care of children in the first three years of life", the Bavarian Guidelines for the education and upbringing of children until the end of primary school, and the implementation of the priority topics specified by the Bavarian State Ministry for Family Affairs, Labor and Social Affairs.
Recipients of funding
Eligible to apply are the umbrella organizations of the voluntary welfare sector and the Bavarian School of Administration as a provider for the public welfare sector. In addition, further training providers are eligible to apply if they can demonstrate that they offer further training comparable to that offered by those already eligible to apply. The following criteria will be used to determine the comparability of the continuing education offering:
- Statewide availability of the continuing education offering,
- Spectrum of the further training offer (topics, target groups),
- competence-oriented design of the training courses,
- accessibility of the training for employees of all day care centers in Bavaria (principle of openness).
An essential means of quality assurance is, among other things, permanent participation and cooperation in the Forum Fortbildung at the Staatsinstitut für Frühpädagogik und Medienkompetenz (IFP). The determination of the comparability of the continuing education program is made by the Government of Middle Franconia in agreement with the Bavarian State Ministry for Family, Labor and Social Affairs.
Type and amount
The state subsidy is granted as a fixed sum within the framework of project funding. Lump-sum funding is provided in accordance with a defined procedure.
