Subsidies for corporate training are starting

Share article:

Today, the Operational Programme Employment Plus started accepting applications in the first call for applications concerning corporate training, which was one of the most sought-after subsidy titles in the past years and will be now, too.

The main objective of the support is the further professional training of employees, specifically the implementation of training courses related to the development of knowledge, abilities and skills required for performing a particular profession. Only digital skills training and compliance with statutory standards are exempt from support.

Eligible beneficiaries can receive between CZK 3 million and CZK 15 million for their training activities. The co-financing rate ranges from 5% to 30% depending on the type of applicant and the location of the project. The subsidy is intended for the actual training courses as well as for the reimbursement of the personal costs of the trainees and the related administration through the so-called unit costs, which compared to the past will also mean a significantly lower administrative burden in the subsequent implementation of their own projects. The projects are expected to be implemented from the beginning of 2024 for a maximum period of 36 months. Projects can be implemented throughout the Czech Republic and the target persons of the project can be employees or cooperating self-employed persons of enterprises of all sizes.

Within the framework of the currently announced call for applications, support can be granted to business associations, business unions, interest associations of legal entities (professional unions and associations), professional chambers or cooperatives, always for the training of employees of their members. A call directly to individual companies under similar conditions will probably be launched later this month and we will keep you informed.
