Funding should be aimed at enabling employees who carry out professional activities that can be replaced by technologies or are otherwise affected by structural change to adapt and further develop their professional skills in order to be able to better meet the challenges mentioned. The same applies to employees who seek further training in a shortage occupation. Sentences 2 and 3 do not apply if the employees belong to a company with fewer than 250 employees and if they start participating after December 31, 2020, have reached the age of 45 or are severely disabled within the meaning of Section 2 (2) of the Ninth Book are.

2.
is severely disabled within the meaning of Section 2 (2) of the Ninth Book.
(3) For the professional development of employees, employers can be subsidized by subsidies for remuneration, provided the further training is carried out within the framework of an existing employment relationship. The grants can be paid for employees who meet the requirements for further training because they do not have a professional qualification in accordance with Section 81 (2) up to the amount calculated as a proportion of the remuneration for further training-related periods without work. This also includes the lump-sum employer's share of the total social security contribution. In addition, if the requirements according to paragraph 1 are met, grants for employees in companies can be included
1.
fewer than ten employees in the amount of up to 75 percent,
2.
at least ten and fewer than 250 employees in the amount of up to 50 percent,

250 employees or more in the amount of up to 25 percent
of the allowable remuneration according to sentences 2 and 3.
(4) If there is a company agreement on continuing vocational training or a collective bargaining agreement that provides for company-related continuing vocational training, the employer's minimum contribution to the course costs according to paragraph 2 is reduced by five percentage points regardless of the size of the company. The wage subsidies according to paragraph 3 sentence 4 can be increased by five percentage points if the requirements according to sentence 1 are met.
(5) The employer's participation in the course costs according to paragraph 2 is reduced by 10 percentage points each time if the professional skills of at least 20 percent, in the case of paragraph 2 sentence 2 number 1 10 percent, of the employees of a company are unlikely to meet the operational requirements or in some cases no longer correspond. The allowances for wages according to paragraph 3 sentence 4 can be increased by 10 percentage points if the requirements according to sentence 1 are met.

1.
the application concerns several employees who are comparable in terms of qualifications, educational objectives or need for further training, and
2.
these employees or the works council have given their consent to this.
When making a discretionary decision on the amount of funding under paragraphs 1 to 5, the Employment Agency can take into account the individual and operational issues on a flat-rate basis for all employees concerned in a uniform and action-related manner and approve the services as a total service. The employer must provide evidence to the Employment Agency that the benefits have been passed on for costs incurred directly by the employees and the institution responsible for the measure no later than three months after the measure has ended. Section 83 (2) remains unaffected.
(7) Section 81 (4) applies. The education voucher can be limited in terms of funding amount and scope. When determining the number of employees, the following must be taken into account:
