The Chamber of Commerce accompanies and supports companies in their commitment to continuously improving the knowledge and skills of their employees. To this end, it acts, on the one hand, in favour of a legislative and regulatory framework conducive to the development of an efficient and transparent training and education system and, on the other hand, it initiates, develops and manages various continuing vocational training projects, in close consultation with companies and national and international training players.
Haven't you found a course that meets your needs? Do you have specific training needs for your company? If you can't find a course that exactly matches your company's needs, our House of Training consultants can guide you through a structured approach:
- We analyse your needs: our consultants listen to you to identify your needs and develop targeted and coherent training actions with you
- We offer you tailor-made solutions, adapted to your professional environment and to your company's rhythm (number of hours, frequency, number of participants, etc.)
- We adapt the content of the training courses to your daily professional life
- We provide you with experienced trainers, selected from among experienced professionals in the field
- We provide you with knowledge tests before or after the training courses
- We ensure quality monitoring by carrying out participant evaluations and debriefing at the end of the training
The House of Training's main mission is to offer a range of continuing professional training to meet the needs of the Luxembourg economy.
Professionals train other professionals
The offer of the House of Training aims, on the one hand, to support company managers in their process of creating, taking over and managing a company by offering them training courses based on their specific needs. On the other hand, it is also aimed at the employees of these companies, who wish to develop their knowledge and skills and evolve in their professional lives.
In its approach, the House of Training favours a pragmatic approach whereby "professionals train other professionals". The majority of its trainers are therefore entrepreneurs, technical experts or representatives of our partners (professional associations, federations, academic institutes, etc.), in order to ensure that the training courses offered reflect the needs of the field as closely as possible.
The House of Training was approved as a continuing professional education organisation by ministerial order on 16th December 2015. By using its services, companies can, under certain conditions, benefit from financial aid from the Government. A full list of available grants can be found at www.lifelonglearning.lu.
In addition to its primary mission of providing high quality continuing professional education to companies and individuals wishing to develop their knowledge and skills or those of their employees, the House of Training also offers a range of ancillary services.
Institut Supérieur de l'Économie: higher education courses in the evening
In order to complete the training ecosystem and in particular the tertiary training offer in Luxembourg, to ensure a high level of skills for employees, in line with the needs of companies, and to improve their competitiveness, the Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Skilled Trades and Crafts have created the Institut Supérieur de l'Économie (ISEC). ISEC offers Bachelor's and Master's degree courses aimed at active people who wish to progress within the company. Courses are offered in the evening and at weekends. Contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at +352 46 50 16 1.

What support for continuing professional development is available?
The Luxembourg Government supports the training efforts of companies by contributing with financial aid for in-company continuing vocational training. Depending on the amount of the annual investment in continuing vocational training and the type of training provided, a company can claim public co-financing for its training activities. The application for co-financing should be sent to the National Institute for the Development of Continuing Vocational Training (INFPC).
In the field of initial training, the Chamber of Commerce is committed to the quality of secondary education and more particularly of vocational training.
It offers programmes for general secondary education and is also actively involved in the organisation of apprenticeships, in particular by identifying the professions potentially concerned, by drawing up programmes and by defining the operating procedures. The Chamber of Commerce manages around 2,000 apprenticeship contracts each year in 30 professions in the trade, industry, hotel and restaurant, service and socio-educational sectors.
Through its WinWin campaign, the Chamber of Commerce informs and sensitises the public, young people, parents and teachers about the advantages of apprenticeship and encourages companies to register apprenticeship positions. The Chamber of Commerce also acts as an intermediary between young people looking for a training company and companies offering apprenticeship positions.
In order to assess the potential for integrating new employees into the company, the Chamber of Commerce has developed the TalentCheck, an assessment tool that is aimed in particular at students wishing to do an apprenticeship with a training company. The tool is a real help in concluding an apprenticeship contract. After passing the TalentCheck, participants receive a certificate, which enables companies to quickly see the talents and skills of any profile needed by the company.
The choice to train an apprentice allows a company or a company director to pass on their passion, knowledge and know-how to young people within the framework of a dual training course under an apprenticeship contract. It is therefore a way of training future employees in the image of their company while enjoying the countless advantages of hiring under an apprenticeship contract.
A special feature of the Greater Region is the possibility of cross-border apprenticeships. The apprentice completes the practical part in a company in Luxembourg and the academic part in a school in a neighbouring country. The foreign diploma is awarded. The company interested in a cross-border apprenticeship must comply with certain procedures and find out which professions are allowed under a cross-border contract.
What assistance is available to training companies and tutors?
Companies that employ apprentices and thus contribute to their training receive aid for promoting apprenticeship in the form of :
- reimbursement of 27% or 40% (depending on the diploma prepared) of the allowance paid to the apprentice.
- reimbursement of the employer's share of the social security charges relating to the apprenticeship allowance paid.
Through close cooperation with businesses and ADEM (National Employment Agency), the Chamber of Commerce supports an employability-oriented vocational training environment, enabling people to acquire the skills needed in the labour market to improve their chances of integration and career transition.
