Health care bonus for private vocational health care schools; application.

The sponsors of certain private vocational schools receive a class subsidy (health bonus) in addition to the statutory benefits of operating subsidy and - indirectly - the state tuition reimbursement, if they waive the collection of additional tuition.

Description

Purpose

In order to make it easier for interested young people to choose these training and career paths, the Free State of Bavaria pays a further voluntary subsidy to the sponsors of the above-mentioned types of school over and above the statutory school funding. This voluntary subsidy is linked to the voluntary waiver by the sponsor of the direct collection of school fees from the students. Through this subsidy, the Free State aims to motivate as many young people as possible to choose one of the professions listed below, which are of outstanding social importance in view of a particularly serious shortage of skilled workers in these areas of health care:

  • Dietitian,
  • Occupational therapist,
  • speech therapist,
  • masseur and medical bath attendant,
  • orthoptist / orthoptist,
  • pharmaceutical-technical assistant,
  • physiotherapist,
  • podiatrist / medical chiropodist / podologist / medical chiropodist,
  • technical assistant in medicine (medical-technical laboratory assistant, medical-technical radiology assistant, medical-technical assistant for functional diagnostics).

Subject

The sponsors of private vocational schools for dieticians, occupational therapists, speech therapists, massage therapists, orthoptists, pharmaceutical assistants, physiotherapists, podiatrists and for technical assistants in medicine are legally entitled to operating subsidies (Art. 41 and Art. 45 Bavarian School Financing Act - BaySchFG) and - indirectly - to reimbursement of school fees (Art. 47 Para. 3 to 5 BaySchFG) within the framework of state school financing.

For the private vocational schools in the aforementioned training occupations, the Free State of Bavaria also pays a health bonus in the form of a class allowance as a voluntary benefit without a legal entitlement within the framework of the available budget funds (budget reservation). The school authority may not then charge its students any additional school fees over and above the state funding.

Beneficiaries

The sponsors of the above-mentioned private vocational schools are eligible to apply.

Type and amount

This is a grant. The exact amount of the grant depends on the class size and the type of schooling (full-time or part-time).

Prerequisites

  • Waiver by the school board of the direct collection of tuition from students.

Procedure

The application for the health bonus must be submitted to the Government of Middle Franconia.

The school authorities are initially granted a first and, if necessary, a second installment of the expected health bonus on the basis of the previous year. The health bonus is to be determined in January of the following year, on the basis of which it will be paid out in three or two further installments.

Special notes

The tuition waiver does not preclude students from sharing in copying costs, costs for consumables and processing materials, or costs for other extraordinary administrative expenses (e.g., examination fees). The cost sharing must be within a reasonable range that is customary at comparable private alternative schools.

Deadlines

The application shall be submitted by November 10 of each year. The total number of pupils and the number of pupils in each class as of October 20 must be stated.
