Companies' training practices

The publication of the Training Observatory on the training activity of companies receiving state financial support for continuing vocational training is issued for the first time in a new format. It includes the content of the three publications produced historically by the Training Observatory, namely the companies' training effort, an analysis of employees' access to training and the State's financial support to in-company training.

The data relating to in-company training in Luxembourg come from Luxembourgish private-sector companies that receive public co-funding for continuing vocational training. The applications made by these companies make it possible to analyse their training practices.

In 2019, a total of 2.324 companies in the Luxembourgish private sector received financial support from the State to finance the training plan. These companies dedicate 1,7% of their payroll to training. Employees take, on average, 4,7 training courses lasting 3,9 hours. On average, a training course costs 220 euros per participant and 56 euros per hour. State support for continuing vocational training (CVT) comes to 37,0 million euros.

Companies receiving public co-funding for training

In 2019, 2.324 companies received financial support from the State for training. These companies, either individually or grouped together with other companies, made up for a total of 1.723 co-funding applications. At a national level, 32,1% of private companies with 10 employees or more received state support and 56,0% of all private-sector employees were represented.

Companies' training effort

Companies receiving state support dedicate 1,7% of their payroll to training. On average, training courses cost 220 euros per participant and 56 euros per hour. The services offered by training providers represent 26,9% of companies' training investment. The "Technical/Core-business-related" and "Management/HR Management" subject areas together account for 56% of companies' training investment and 52% of training hours completed. After "Technical/Core-business-related", the highest number of training course participants is in "Finance, accounting and law" and "Quality, ISO and safety". These three subject areas together attract 76% of those participating in training courses.

Employees' access to training

The employees of companies receiving state support take, on average, 4,7 training courses lasting 3,9 hours. On average, men take slightly more training courses than women (4,8 compared with 4,6), in particular in companies with 250 to 999 employees (5,6 compared with 4,6). On average, senior executives participate in more training courses (7,3) than managers (6,6) and qualified employees (4,9). Non-qualified employees take, on average, 2,9 fewer training courses than all employees. Female senior executives and managers participate in more training courses (on average 8,1 and 9,4, respectively) than non-qualified women (1,4 training courses, on average). Finally, employees over 45 years old can expect to take 4,4 training courses.

The State's financial contribution

In 2019, state support for continuing vocational training (CVT) came to 37,0 million euros, which was an increase of 4,5% compared with 2018. The amount of co-funding granted came, on average, to 21.496 euros per application, 9,2 euros per training hour and 171 euros per employee.
