€1000 STAP subsidy for language training

A language course is the perfect way to improve your chances in the labour market. STAP is a new, personal budget for personal development made available to almost everyone working in the Netherlands. The yearly €1000 budget can be used to subsidize a professional Dutch, English, French or German language course from The Square Mile.

A training with results

We deliver tailored, high-quality training with results. Experience shows that you need at least 30 hours of training supplemented by 20 hours of private study to really improve your language skills. That’s why we offer 30 hour, individual courses for the STAP programme. STAP pays €1000, you or your employer pays the rest. We offer:

  • Personal training. 30 hours of 1-to 1 training with your professional trainer.
  • Tailored approach. During your intake we evaluate your level, establish your learning objectives and context for the course.
  • Flexible programmes. You follow the course at your own speed, with a minimum of one lesson of 2 hours each week.
  • Online delivery. The course takes place through Zoom or Teams for efficient, easy delivery.
  • Blended learning. We combine a variety of tools to make your course varied and relevant.
  • Your course costs €2,780 including the intake and materials. Once you are awarded the STAP budget, you pay €1,780 (VAT exempt) and STAP pays us €1000 direct. We finalise your course once we receive confirmation of the STAP budget award and invoice you once the course planning is completed (30 days payment period).
  • Should you not be awarded the STAP subsidy, you can withdraw from the course at no cost.
