About the Golden Plan

This Plan has been developed based on our experiences with previous training courses. This timeline is feasible in the case of a good effort of the candidate. The indications remain at all times, the bold letters printed behind each phase of the month remain decisive for the start of the next phase and the beginning of the conditions that accompany it.


After the last monthly phase (month 12), you will continue to work for Leven&Zorg for at least 1 more year. In case you decide to leave earlier, a payment scheme will be followed as set out in the employment contract. This payment scheme is justified by the company’s investment in employee training (hours paid during language lessons and additional training, such as ROC skills training).

What if I decide to leave the plan early?

•If you decide to leave the plan early, the cost incurred in the training taken will be charged to you. In principle, through salary if a supplement is required, an invoice will follow.
•When you leave the plan, the work will be completed immediately and you will need to leave the property that is available to work.

The full investment in training costs €3,750. After you obtain the BIG registry, the following payment scheme applies:

  • Departure within the first 6 months: 75 of the training cost.
  • Departure within 7-12 months of the pimer year: 50 of the training cost.
  • Departure within 13-18 months of the first year: 25 of the training cost.
