The 5 steps to the STAP budget

2. Enroll in a course of your choice. STAP budget can be applied for all our courses. 

3. Receive the STAP enrolment certificate. After you are enrolled, we will send you the STAP enrolment certificate.

4. Request your STAP budget from the UWV at the beginning of the next STAP application period, this can be done through the UWV STAP portal: 

Go to the UWV website
You will need:
 - DigID
 - STAP proof of application
 - Student, client, or enrollment number (found on your proof of application).

Make sure you log in to the STAP portal before 10:00 on the first day of the application period.

5. Applications go in order of receipt, so you will be in a queue.
→ Keep waiting - with your browser window open - otherwise you will join the back of the queue again.
→ Have you made it through the queue? Complete your request
→ You may not get through, there are too many people in the queue.

6. The UWV awards the training budget if you meet the conditions. The budget is paid directly to the Holland Innovative, we settle it in the training invoice.
