Financial support to promote apprenticeships

Last update

Employers hiring an apprentice under an apprenticeship contract can avail of financial aid intended to promote apprenticeships.

Following the successful completion of the apprenticeship, apprentices may be entitled to an apprenticeship award.

Who is concerned?

The financial aid is available to all employers established in Luxembourg who employ an apprentice under an apprenticeship contract.


Companies wishing to benefit from apprenticeship subsidies and awards must be authorised to train apprentices and have obtained their approval as a training organisation.


Applications must be submitted before 1 July of the year following the year during which the apprenticeship ended.

Past that deadline, employers are no longer entitled to financial aid for the year concerned.

Example: for the apprenticeship year 2023-2024, applications must be submitted before 1 July 2025 at the latest.

How to proceed

Submitting the application

the Career Guidance Department of the National Employment Agency (Agence pour le développement de l'emploi - ADEM).

Supporting documents

The application must be accompanied by copies of the apprentice's salary slips for the period concerned.

Duration of aid

Aid is allocated per apprenticeship year (school year). The apprenticeship year runs from September to August of the following year.

Degree of aid

The Employment Fund (Fonds pour l'emploi) pays the employer financial aid in the amount of:

  • 27 % of the gross apprenticeship allowance paid to the apprentice training for a DT (technician's diploma), a DAP (vocational aptitude diploma) or a cross-border apprenticeship (TRF); or
  • 40 % of the apprenticeship allowance paid to an apprentice training for a CCP (vocational capacity certificate).

Employers can also request the reimbursement of the employer's share of social security contributions with regard to the apprenticeship allowance paid.

Who to contact
