Study expenses deduction scheme to be abolished in 2022: the STAP budget

Study expenses deduction scheme to be abolished in 2022: the STAP budget

Starting in 2022, the STAP (i.e. ‘labour market position incentive’) budget will replace the current scheme. This entitles you to a personal development budget of €1000 per year. You can use this budget to follow a master class or a course. If this costs more than €1000, you will have to pay the rest yourself. The government is expected to make an annual budget of over €200 million available, which will enable some 200,000 grant applications to be made. To this end, there will be six registration deadlines scheduled throughout the year, with allocation based on the 'first come, first served' principle. Would you like to be kept up to date concerning this scheme, so you can sign up in time? Please enter your details below.

Considering the future of your work

Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, Wouter Koolmees: ‘It must become a matter of course for people to regularly consider the future of their work and to get more training.’ According to the Ministry, this still does not happen often enough. Hopefully, with the new scheme, more people will be taking courses and enrolling in degree programmes to develop themselves.
