Visio support for training events
General information about training events
- A training event can be a seminar, course, theme-day, a series of lectures or a study trip.
- The event has to have a planned program and someone responsible for it and an organiser or a teacher.
- There must be at least five participants.
- The support can be granted to any organisation, not just Visio’s members.
- The application must be handed in at least two weeks before the event. The support is paid after the event according to the actual costs.
- The organiser is responsible for all financial issues and takes care of all the needed financial transactions including social security costs for employees.
Amount of the support
- Visio stands for maximum of half of the accepted expenses of the event.
- The max. amount depends on the amount of study hours. For each studyhour you can get up to 20€, one study hour equals 45 minutes.Example: An organisation hosts a training event for new volunteers. The length of the training is 4 study hours (á 45 minutes). The costs of the event are 180€ (rent, lecturer fee, catering) How much do they get support from Visio?Answer: Due to the length (4 study hours) the max amount is 4 x 20 =80€ Visio pays 80€ of the costs and the organisational pays the rest 100€
