Do you want to follow professional training to acquire new skills? Would training make your job search easier? However, its funding seems to be a brake. The regional council can intervene in addition to other mechanisms (CPF, AIF, etc.). What are the criteria for benefiting from support by the region? What is the procedure for applying for funding? Do not hesitate to ask your adviser for help to produce a convincing file.
Who are the beneficiaries of training financed by the regional council?
To benefit from this scheme, you must be unemployed and be supervised by a public body which depends on your situation.
- Employment center for job seekers.
- Local missions for young people between 16 and 25 years old.
- Cap employment for disabled workers.
- APEC for executives.
Employees who have been made redundant and benefit from a CSP (Professional Security Contract) can claim to fund from the region. However, be aware that it primarily finances training for job seekers who are not compensated by Pôle Emploi.
This intermediary is essential because you can not seek help directly from your regional council.
How to compile the funding application file?
The procedure may be different from one region to another. However, regardless of what to do, you will need to complete a document with the help of your professional adviser. To be credible, you must prepare it well and demonstrate the relevance of your project. Your file must include a precise description of your professional project. Beforehand, contact the training organizations and ask them for an estimate as well as the details of the program. This will allow you to better target your goals. This will make you more believable. When you have finalized your file, send it to the department concerned.
The financing agreement will be decided according to:
- prospects for integration or return to work;
- your personal goals;
- your circumstances ;
- the level of diploma acquired ;
- your resources;
- funding mobilized.
If you have already taken funded training by the regional council, your attendance and the results obtained will be taken into account.
What aid is granted by the regional council?
The regional council intervenes at several levels within the framework of the financing of training, namely:
- the training itself;
- the additional costs generated by this training action;
- compensation for the duration of the training.
To finance training, the regional council grants in the majority of cases a contribution to complete another financing mechanism. However, there are other aids deployed by some regions.
The region may allocate a sum to supplement the cost of your training. Indeed, it intervenes in addition to another device such as:
- The CPF (Personal Training Account): these are rights acquired during your period of professional activity. An employee who works full time saves 500 euros per year with a total ceiling of 5,000 euros. For the regional council to intervene in addition to the CPF, you must use all of your acquired rights to finance the desired training.
- AIF ( Aide Individuelle à la Formation) : this aid was set up in collaboration with the region and is managed by Pôle emploi. The AIF is intended for job seekers followed by Pôle Emploi whose training request is consistent with a return to work.
The amount of the contribution is based on the relevance of the dossier you have prepared. It also depends on several criteria (level of qualification, age, profile, etc.). All job seekers (ARE beneficiaries or not) can obtain a matching contribution.
Other assistive devices
In some regions, the contribution of the CPF is not the only existing mechanism for financing training. Indeed, some regions grant training vouchers to facilitate the financing of training. Additional aid schemes are decided within the framework of the CPRDFPOP (Regional Plan Contract for the Development of Vocational Training and Vocational Guidance).
The distance from the training organization should not be an obstacle. To facilitate the access of job seekers to the labor market, the region can finance transport costs and accommodation costs, if the training takes place far from home. In this context, it is a matter of fixed compensation. The amount of these fixed allowances are determined according to the distance between your home and the place of your training.
Your remuneration during the training action depends on your situation (beneficiary or not of the ARE) on the day of your entry into training.
The beneficiary of the ARE (Return to Work Allowance)
Do you benefit from the ARE paid by Pôle Emploi, but it does not cover the entire duration of the training? If your training is co-financed by the regional council and it allows you to acquire skills to exercise a job in tension, you can claim the End of Training Remuneration (R2F).
Non-beneficiary of the ARE (Return to Work Allowance)
You do not collect the ARE because you do not meet the required criteria? You can benefit from a remuneration paid by the region. To do this, your training must be approved by the regional council, be of a minimum duration of 150 hours, and have open rights to remuneration. The region intervenes within the framework of the “Remuneration of vocational training trainees” scheme. Thus, you receive a monthly allowance for training. The amount of this allowance depends on several criteria such as your age, your family situation, and your status (disabled, self-employed, etc.).
The regional council also takes care of your social security contributions. You are therefore covered for the duration of your training even in the event of an accident at work.
Now you know how to get training funded by the regional council. If you wish to benefit from assistance in the development of your professional project,
