The Prime Minister hails a “real success” to justify this extension.

Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne announced on Friday the extension “Alike” aid for companies to hire apprentices. “We absolutely want to continue to encourage companies to hire apprentices and that is why I can announce to you this morning that‘we are going to extend the learning aids in the same way”she told the press on the sidelines of a trip devoted to learning in a vacation center in Seine-et-Marne.

Aid for hiring an apprentice rises “at 5,000 euros for a minor apprentice, 8,000 euros for an adult”, recalled the Prime Minister. Their amount had been raised to this level in June 2020, in an economic context disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. “Apprenticeship is a real success of the previous five-year term. (…) In 2017, there were less than 300,000 apprentices and in 2021 it is 730,000 apprentices. Our goal is one million apprenticesshe added.

Forecast at 3.2 billion in 2021, despite an exceptional subsidy of 2.75 billion, the deficit of France competences, which finances apprentice training centers (CFA) in particular from the contribution of companies, could climb to 5.9 billion this yearwhich will require a new financial boost, specifies BFM TV.
