Get your training course subsidised!
Investing in the language proficiency of your employees and getting money back for doing it? It’s almost too good to be true. Well, believe it because the various governments and some sector funds will provide financial support for your company. And to top it all off, there are also subsidies for employing non-native speakers.
Flanders - SME portfolio
The Flemish Administration will provide financial support via the SME portfolio for your language training programmes. So, don’t miss out on this chance to make some serious savings.
Open up the SME portfolio and get your ElaN Learning language training programmes subsidised. After all, we are an accredited training centre.
Up to 40% in financial aid
Sole proprietors and small companies receive a 40% discount (with a maximum subsidy of €10,000 annually), while medium-sized companies receive a 30% discount (with an annual cap of €15,000).
- Small companies: < 50 employees and a turnover of ≤ €10,000,000
- Medium-sized companies: < 250 employees and a turnover of ≤ €50,000,000
Request a subsidy
This is quick and easy to do on www.kmo-portefeuille.be. Don’t forget to mention ElaN Learnings’ accreditation number: DV.0101470. Please note: your application must be submitted no later than 14 days after the start of the training course.
Flanders - Paid Educational Leave (PEL)
Because the ElaN Learning ‘Communication skills’ training courses are officially recognised, you can recover a major portion of the costs via the Paid Educational Leave (PEL) system.
It’s definitely worth the effort. The Flemish government will cover an amount of €21.30 per training hour per employee.

Flanders & Wallonia – Sector funds
It’s not just the Flemish Administration that will give you a boost. Many employers and/or trade unions support their sectors with a wide range of training options.
Are there support measures for your sector? Feel free to contact us. We will be happy to tell you which sectoral subsidies you are eligible for.
Brussels - Language training grants
The Brussels-Capital Region helps SMEs organise language training programmes. As an employer, you are eligible for a subsidy of 50% of the training costs, with a cap of €5,000.
Visit the subsidy portal of the Brussels-Capital Region for more information.
