In the jungle of English lessons

Esma Saif, 34, studied English well in high school. But in the ten years she lived in France she lost a lot. “I love communication and now feel a real barrier to speaking, lack of vocabulary”, She regrets. In 2021, I decided to enroll in training at my English school for three months at the rate of two lessons per week.

According to Caisse des dépôts, 18% of the training requests verified on the Personal Training Accounting Center (CPF) by 2021 will be for learning modern languages, for a total of 380,358 files. An achievement! They are in the top 3 of the most purchased systems. Certificate courses in English, especially DOIC (English test for international communications), are subject to 82,539 files by 2021 alone, more than double by 2020.

With the implementation of the Professional Futures Act, released in September 2018, many private pharmacies have rushed into breach. “Previously, to convert your CPF hours into euros and receive funding, you had to go through competent operators (Opco), which could take three to six months.”, Recalled Deborah Gillette, president of my English school in Lyon. By the time the training is over and the Opcos payment is made, the training companies may have waited up to two years for the funds to be withdrawn.

Free to use CPF

Since the implementation of the “direct purchase path” on the Moncompteformation site, in November 2019, they receive a 25% deposit within 30 days of the start of training and the remaining amount thirty days after it closes. So there is no need to keep the advance for two years. “Initially there were very few restrictions so we saw a lot of new players appearing in the market, not always very aggressively”, Guillaume le Dieu de Ville, co-founder of Linguio. Some companies seek out influencers on social networks to benefit their subscribers “Gifts” – Computers, tablets – Low cost for any training funded by CPF.

Others go even further. Dominic Trond, a 74-year-old doctor who is still active, paid the price. “One and a half months ago, a good man called me on my mobile and told me about my rights to training”, He says. “Since I have never been to the new Moncompteformation site, I gladly accepted the help it has given me.” Dominic undoubtedly gives his Social Security number. Without realizing it, he automatically enrolled in a nine-hour distance learning English course – a project he had never undertaken before. All for 1900 euros, taken from his CPF. When Dominic noticed this fraud, he canceled his record. But he may not have noticed.
