Le salarié en formation en dehors du temps de travail est-il rémunéré?

Service-Public.fr : Le site officiel de l'administration françaiseLe salarié en formation en dehors du temps de travail bénéficie d'une rémunération, sous la forme d'une allocation de formation, dont le montant s'ajoute à la rémunération du salarié. Le versement de cette allocation n'est possible que si la formation se déroule en dehors du temps de travail dans le cadre d'une action de développement des compétences ou d'un droit individuel à la formation (Dif).
Quel est le montant de l'allocation?

Le montant de l'allocation de formation, versée par l'entreprise, est égal à 50% de la rémunération nette de référence du salarié concerné. Lorsque l'action de formation suivie en dehors du temps de travail se déroule lors d’une période de chômage partiel, le versement de l'allocation de formation ne peut avoir pour effet de porter la rémunération nette du salarié à un niveau supérieur à celle dont il aurait bénéficié s'il n'avait pas bénéficié, durant cette période, d’une action de formation. Le salarié peut bénéficier d'une majoration d'au moins 10% de l'allocation de formation, lorsqu'un accord de branche le prévoit, si la formation suivie en dehors de son temps de travail entraîne des frais supplémentaires de garde d'enfant. Un document récapitulatif retraçant l'ensemble des heures de formation effectuées et des versements de l'allocation afférents est remis au salarié chaque année. Ce document est annexé au bulletin de paie.
Quel est le mode de calcul de l'allocation?
Cas général

Elle correspond à la moitié de la rémunération nette de référence, qui est obtenue en divisant le total des rémunérations nettes versées au salarié au cours des 12 derniers mois par le nombre total d'heures rémunérées au cours de ces mêmes 12 derniers mois.
Cas des salariés en convention de forfait

Pour les salariés rémunérés en convention de forfait, le salaire horaire de référence est obtenu par la formule suivante: 151,67 heures X (nombre de jours de la convention individuelle de forfait / 217 jours) X12 mois.
Cas des salariés intérimaires

Pour le calcul de l'allocation de formation des salariés intérimaires, sont prises en compte les heures rémunérées au titre de la mission en cours ou, à défaut, de la dernière mission effectuée.

Minister urges matriculants to explore all education options

By Khulekani Magubane.http://www.bdlive.co.za/template/common/images/logos/businessday.gif HIGHER Education and Training Minister Blade Nzimande on Thursday in Pietermaritzburg welcomed last year’s 73.9% National Senior Certificate pass rate, and urged those who did not qualify for university entrance to consider alternatives, including further education and training (FET) colleges.
The Department of Higher Education and Training said on Wednesday that it would provide R6bn to universities between 2012 and 2015 for infrastructure development, with the bulk of the funding going to "historically disadvantaged" institutions.
While the country’s matrics who passed their exams celebrated on Thursday, questions were raised by academics about universities’ abilities to accommodate new entrants.
Mr Nzimande said universities would accept about 180,000 new entrants this year, while public FET colleges had 100,000 available spaces.
More than 270,000 students qualified to enter a higher education institution. Of these, 135,000 will be allowed to enrol at a university. Read more...

Treat white working-class boys like ethnic minority, Willetts tells universities

The IndependentBy Richard Garner. Massive fall in admissions demands drastic action, Universities minister says. Universities will be told they should recruit more white, working-class boys in the wake of figures showing a massive slump in applications from men for courses.
The Universities minister David Willetts wants white, working-class teenage boys put in the same category as students from other disadvantaged communities and ethnic minorities – as groups that should be targeted for recruitment.
The move has the potential to create conflict with Britain's independent schools if universities – as a result – use it to discriminate against middle-class applicants in order to curry favour with the university access watchdog, the Office for Fair Access. Read more...

Profit motive is threatening higher education

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Paul Blake & CollegeTimes EditorsWe were pleased to see the recent article by Richard Hall titled "The profit motive is threatening higher education" published on 18 November 2012.
Our team of editors at CollegeTimes, a website that allows students from around the world to submit uncensored reviews of their university, witnesses the corrupt and destructive influence of money on the higher education system on a daily basis. Our website has existed for more than four years, and never have we encountered any animosity between our community and traditional public, private, or non-profit institutions. However, the amount of legal threats, lawsuits, hacking attempts, domain hijacking attempts, and so forth on the part of for-profit institutions around the world (especially from the US and Canada) is something that we deal with every single day.Read more...

European Students' Union confronts democratic deficit

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Anne Corbett. A few weeks ago the European Students' Union (ESU) celebrated its 30th anniversary. It has been an exciting history for an organisation that started in 1982 as a European information bureau for Western students: a reaction to Soviet domination of the international student movement. In 1989, when the Berlin Wall came down, it opened its doors to student movements from across Europe. Judging by the tales of some of the early heroes and heroines, there were plenty of special moments. In the early days, one of them was steering Norwegians away from saving whales to saving a nascent student movement.Read more...

Mining the benefits of internationalisation

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Abu Kamara. International education is increasingly becoming a priority for governments around the world. As a result, most are implementing aggressive international student-friendly immigration policies to stay competitive in a pugnacious global international education market.
In a recent report, the Advisory Panel on Canada’s International Education, a government-backed initiative, identified international education as an important factor in Canada’s future prosperity. More than simply an international education strategy, the report represents the first time the Canadian government has invested significant resources in the development of a comprehensive, cross-sector and cross-province international education strategy.Read more...

2013: Internationalisation more than a numbers game

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Hans de Wit. The major internationalisation themes of 2012 will continue into 2013, but many would like to see a greater emphasis on the content and quality of the international experience rather than just numbers.
The debate on international higher education in 2012 was dominated by MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses – and it is likely that MOOCs will continue to be the fashion of the year in 2013, in the same way that international university rankings have been over the past five years, and transnational or cross-border higher education were over the five years before. These three key developments in international higher education have drawn the full gamut of opinions, ranging from complete opposition to those who consider them a major revolution. It is undeniable that MOOCs, like transnational education and rankings, have become an important dimension of international higher education.Read more...

A focus on skills increasingly links higher education with employment

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Yojana Sharma. The attention of education policy-makers and the international education community is moving away from raising literacy levels and increasing access to secondary and higher education, towards skills required by the workforce to promote economic growth.
This became increasingly evident during the past year in the richest countries. Recognition of the issue is also growing in emerging economies and middle-income countries, and is likely to be a major debate in developing nations as discussion on what should succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) takes centre stage in the next two years. Higher education experts say that universities are coming under increasing pressure to ensure that their graduates are ‘employable’, although preparation for ‘employability’ is still only rarely incorporated in university courses, and the skills that could make a difference in finding employment and ways to deliver those skills are still not evident.
“There is growing awareness of the need to link education to employment,” said Nicholas Burnett, managing director of the Results for Development Institute in Washington, DC, and a former assistant director general for education at UNESCO where he was head of the Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report.Read more...

Region could get first foreign branch campus this year

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Maina Waruru. The horn of Africa’s self-declared state of Somaliland may get its first foreign university by mid-2013, if plans by a private university in Kenya to open a branch campus there come to fruition.
The rapidly expanding though relatively new Mount Kenya University, headquartered in Thika in central Kenya, is planning to open a campus in the Somaliland capital Hargeisa. Mount Kenya has been on an ambitious regional expansion trajectory barely 10 years after being founded, and has in the past year opened campuses in Kigali, Rwanda, and in Juba, the capital of South Sudan. The university also has a virtual campus in Nairobi. Read more...

Impacts of intensive courses on internationalisation

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Jan Petter Myklebust. The Finnish Center for International Mobility (CIMO) has just released a commissioned study on the impact of intensive courses on internationalisation. It looks not only at how these intensive study courses affect the international strategies of Finnish higher education institutions but also at how they advance education development policies.
Written by researchers Anna Martin and Miia Mäntyla of the University of Vaasa and supported by the European Commission, the report focuses on the impact of 223 publicly supported intensive courses arranged by eight Finnish universities and nine universities of applied sciences in the period 2007-11.
