Direct Grant Scheme for Certification – II

The purpose of the Direct Grant Scheme for Certification – II is to support individuals who deserved to be awarded with VQA Vocational Qualification Certificate by taking an exam at the VQA’s authorised certification bodies (ACB) and to decrease labour costs by supporting the employment of employees who possess the qualities the labour market needs.

The candidates who successfully complete the exams and deserve to be awarded with a VQA Vocational Qualifications Certificate will have their exam fees refunded through the direct grant fund. The implementation period will last for 48 months and the target is to fund 50,000 candidates’ exam fees.

The Direct Grant Scheme for Certification – II was temporarily suspended by the Delegation of the European Union to Turkey due to an amendment made in the Private Education Institutions Law No. 5580. The necessary steps are being taken regarding the suspension and the implementation period will begin once it is lifted.
