Financing training

Training possibilities in France

dispositifs de formationThe latest reform to vocational training was voted on March 5th 2014 and came into effect on January 1st 2015.
It emphasises the employer's social responsibility (obligation to provide training), which replaces the fiscal obligation (obligation to spend) which was in force until then.

Today, it is the staff who are the focus of the system and the aim is to gain qualifications and maintain the employability of staff. Within this system, the majority of funds allocated to training and managed by the OPCAs (Approved Joint Collecting Organisations) will be devoted to training resulting in certificates or diplomas that are subject to the eligibility criteria defined by the reform.
Any training that does not fall into this category must be financed directly by the company's own funding.
