Subsidised business English courses are the best alternative for all those companies that want to expand their activity into the international market with guarantees.

Getting your employees to master business English has a positive impact on their productivity and their level of involvement in the project.

With a good level of business English, your teams will find it easier to find new business opportunities anywhere in the world and communicate with clients, partners and public administrations.

Did you know that you are entitled to training credits on your employees’ business English courses?

This is known as subsidised training. Find out what it is and how to manage it below.

What are the characteristics of subsidised training?

Subsidised training is a type of credit granted to companies to develop training programmes with the aim of improving the professional skills of their employees.

This credit takes the form of deductions in Social Security contributions. The Tripartite Foundation or FUNDAE is the institution in charge of managing subsidised training for companies.

These are the main characteristics of subsidised training in English courses for companies:

  • It is totally free for workers.
  • It is exclusively for companies. Self-employed and freelance professionals do not have access to subsidised training.
  • The subsidies are only applicable to in-company English courses that are carried out online or in person, excluding distance learning courses, in which there is no direct contact between employees and specialised in-company language teachers.

Who deals with subsidised training?

Most companies do not have the time or resources to take on the task of designing in-company English courses tailored to the needs of their employees.

In addition to document management and the processing of applications, subsidised training in English courses for companies requires prior planning in which both the training itinerary of each employee and their objectives are defined.

All these tasks, as well as the implementation and monitoring of in-company English courses, become much easier when you have the help of an educational institution that is an expert in subsidised in-company training.

These are the steps that Classgap for Enterprise follows to help you train your employees with subsidised in-company English courses:

  • Detect needs: You need to know the real level of English of your employees and define objectives for each position or department. You can find out what your employees need through the Business English test.
  • Design a training plan: Once the objectives of the subsidised business English course have been established, it is time to design a training plan that includes the calendar and the timetable for the classes, so that they can be combined with the employees’ working day.
  • Use digital resources: Online training in subsidised English courses for companies accelerates learning thanks to the direct contact between employees and teachers. Classes are held via videoconference and all the tools available in virtual classrooms are used.
  • Keep track of the training: With the help of a tracking panel you can monitor the progress of each employee in your subsidised business English course. You can even measure the ROI of the training.
