In Germany, the Bildungsgutschein is a voucher from the Bundesagentur für Arbeit. It pays for professional training for unemployed people. For example, you can use it to take programming classes or German classes.

The Bildungsgutschein is similar to the AVGS voucher, but it's more for long-term training. It can cover months of training, and even a complete career change.1
