In November 2019, the French Employment Ministry launched the application MonCompteFormation, the app that manages the CPF (Compte Personnel de Formation), government-funded professional training program. This app was designed to provide salaried employees and the unemployed with the opportunity to be more independent in managing their professional training.
A new version of the MonCompteFormation application was made available at the beginning of February 2021. With this latest update came new functionalities. Let’s take a look at those and a quick summary of the app’s first year.
Over the course of February and March the MonCompteFormation application will include 2 new main functions primarily focused on evaluations and searching.
Evaluations: This month, app users will be able to see evaluation scores for 5 main criteria for each training program.
Each training program is now evaluated based on the following:
- Training content
- Training materials
- Trainee support
Searching: In addition to the current search capabilities, the ability to search by evaluation scores will also be made available. Trainees will be able to search based on the above evaluation criteria.
