This is what the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ subsidy entails

The EU, Just Transition Fund, CA-ICT and the Province of North Brabant have made a generous subsidy available for training people from West North Brabant. At Techionista Academy, a proud executor of this grant, you will receive career orientation and start with the Data & AI training that most appeals to you. Thanks to the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ subsidy, 50% of the costs are already covered. The other 50% is paid for by you, or a co-financier, such as the UWV, an RMT, or an employer.

When are you eligible for the grant?

  • You live or work in Western North Brabant or would like to.
  • Whether you are an employee, self-employed, looking for a job, or on benefits: in principle, everyone is eligible for this subsidy. During the intake phase, we look together at whether a study at Techionista is a good match for you.
  • You must be older than 18 and younger than the retirement age.

Here’s how to sign up

Choosing the right training is paramount, especially when it comes to the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ subsidy opportunity. To kick off the process, you’ll initially need to fill out our online intake form, that you will receive via email after signing up here. This step helps us evaluate your eligibility for the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ subsidy. If you’re deemed eligible, you’ll receive an invite to undertake an online DISC assessment. This assessment helps us identify your communication style, and collaboration approach, as well as pinpoints your strengths and areas of improvement. Such insights are crucial for our career coach. Upon qualifying, we’ll delve deeper to understand your goals and prior experience, ensuring we align you with the ideal training path.
The choices span between a vocational (shorter) training activity and a more extensive profession-oriented (re)training program, both falling under the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ North-Brabant initiative. For those leaning towards the vocational training, only a brief intake is necessary before diving into your chosen course. However, if the profession-oriented (re-)training program catches your eye, there’s a preliminary step: the Career Orientation track. This phase grants you access to interviews with Data & AI professionals, a comprehensive job scan, a live ‘Business Model You’ training, and a dedicated session to chalk out your personal development plan. For further insights on career orientation, continue browsing to this page. It’s vital to note: undergoing the career orientation is a prerequisite for the DigiPower ‘Green Deal’ profession-oriented (re)training program.”

Sign up

First you’ll sign up without obligation. After that, you’ll receive an online intake, in which you can tell us more about who you are and what your ambitions are. Based on this form, we will determine if you are eligible for the subsidy.

Go through intake or career orientation

Are you eligible for the subsidy? Then, depending on whether you opt for a vocational training or profession-oriented (re) training, you will go through an intake or a career orientation. For this phase, you agree to our General Terms and Conditions.

Start training

After the intake or career orientation, you can start the program of your choice. You choose your start date and we will take care of the rest.
