Eligibility of benefits for different profiles - permanent, CAST, Temporary Agent | EU Training

I have heard, that one of the benefits of working for an institution of the EU is that your childrens (very expensive!) school fees at one of the international schools in Brussels will be paid for.  Not having this benefit would be a prohibitive factor for me moving to Brussels at all and attempting my luck in the CAST calls or applying for positions as a temporary agent, so I hope one of you can help me figuring this out:  Does this benefit regarding paid school fees for employee's children only apply to temporary agents or also to contract agents and temporary agents?  

Thanks so much!

Hello Charlotte,

Hello Charlotte,

From my knowledge staff at the EU institutions - be it officals, temporary agents, CAST staff members, seconded national experts or APAs in the European Parliament - can send their children to the "European schools" free of charge (so called category I). You can find some further information on this under the following link: https://www.eursc.eu/en/European-Schools/enrolments/admission 

There are also other international schools in Brussels and close to Brussels - however I have not heard that fees for these schools would be covered by the EU institutions. 

I would suggest you check with EPSO and/or the European schools directly in order to have certainty on this matter.

Dear Dude,
