Financez votre formation

accès à l'accueil - Pôle emploiSelon la formation visée et votre situation personnelle, votre contribution au financement de votre formation sera différente. Il est donc important pour vous de faire le point sur ce que vous percevrez pendant la formation et sur les coûts qui resteront à votre charge.
A savoir : si vous suivez une formation dans le cadre d’un contrat de travail en alternance (contrat d’apprentissage ou contrat de professionnalisation), vous avez un statut de salarié et le coût de la formation est pris en charge par votre employeur.
Pour plus d’information, rendez-vous sur le portail de l’alternance : www.contrats-alternance.gouv.fr. Voir l'article...

In our opinion: Fund growth in higher education

Deseret NewsUtah lawmakers have a rare opportunity this year to provide some of the state’s fastest growing institutions of higher learning with the money they need to catch up with the demands of what, in some cases, is an overwhelming rate of growth.
It’s a rare opportunity because the presidents of all universities and colleges in the state have agreed to a formula that would provide this equity — even though the University of Utah, Snow College, Utah State and Southern Utah University would receive none of the roughly $69 million the Utah System of Higher Education is asking for in order to put all schools on an equal level with funding at about $4,800 for each full-time student.

Universities, government negotiating over research funds

http://beta.images.theglobeandmail.com/media/www/images/flag/gam-masthead.pngBy James Bradshaw. The federal government’s promise of $1.5-billion in new research funding in last week’s budget is a major coup for Canada’s universities, but the sensitive work to decide how they will share it is still to come. Over 10 years, the Canada First Research Excellence Fund will disburse as much as $200-million annually, starting with $50-million in 2015, making it one of the costliest new budget pledges. It is designed to invest in key fields of strength to attract talent, buy equipment and build international networks. More...

How we could solve the riddle of higher education funding

http://static.guim.co.uk/static/c55907932af8ee96c21b7d89a9ebeedb4602fbbf/common/images/logos/the-guardian/news.gifBy Mark Reiff. Make university free for students, but extract promises to pay tax on it later. Then sell off the promises… Mark Reiff explains.

Federal budget strengthens university research with new funding

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQWMTBx0CPzMFK637Zb6AgNbjhxfVRtTVkrwKoq4ZPL2p18KKWOEwB3AWIBy Peggy Berkowitz. Universities are pleased and grateful for research commitments.
University research was a big winner in a federal budget that kept its promise to offer modest spending increases overall at a time of restrained economic growth for Canada. The $1.5 billion awarded to a new research excellence fund over 10 years is the centrepiece of several research funding commitments in Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s 2014 budget, tabled in Parliament Feb. 11. The budget also raised the base budgets of the three major federal research granting councils by $37 million, mainly for untargeted research, and gave a $9-million boost to the program that contributes to universities’ indirect costs of doing research.
