Financing Options

The Digital Training Voucher ( Cheque de Formação + Digital) is a measure to support and incentivize the development of skills and qualifications in the digital domain. It is part of a program supporting the development of digital skills that reimburses workers up to €750 for training actions in these areas. The voucher can be directly requested by workers or by companies.

This initiative encompasses specific direct financing that has been part of a community support program, executed nationally by the Institute of Employment and Vocational Training (IEFP).

How does it work?

The maximum support to be awarded per recipient/applicant and year (12 months from the date of submission of the first approved application) is €750.

Applications for professional training actions in the digital domain with start dates from 28-09-2022 can be submitted, with the maximum completion date for training being 30-09-2025.

Each application can only cover one professional training action, even though it may consist of a set of Units/Modules of Training, according to the assumptions established in the Specific Regulation regarding the focus on the digital domain. Training can be conducted in face-to-face, blended, or fully remote mode.

Who is it for?

Any worker can request this support, regardless of the employment relationship. Thus, the beneficiaries are:

  • Employees;

  • Self-employed workers with income;

  • Sole Proprietors of Limited Liability Companies;

  • Partners of Single-Member Companies with Limited Liability;

  • Public servants.

However, priority will be given to candidates who:

  • Are at risk of unemployment;

  • Have low knowledge in the digital area;

  • Are part of the team responsible for the digital transformation process of the company or organization for which they work;

  • Belonging to the underrepresented gender in their profession.

What documents are required to apply?

  • Declaration under the applicant's honor commitment.
