Professional Development Consulting (PEC)

Verified 20 January 2023 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Want to take stock of your professional situation? The professional development advice (CEP) is a free and personalized support device, which can respond to your request. The EPC allows, if necessary, to establish a professional development project (reconversion, resumption or creation of activity,...). It may be carried out by advisors from different bodies. We present you with the information you need to know.

Among other things, the CEP allows you to:

  • To express your request and clarify your need
  • Access personalized information
  • Develop a strategy to build and define a professional project
  • Verify that this project is feasible
  • To identify the skills or qualifications needed to succeed in this project
  • To be helped to find the financing

The FFS is available to:

  • Private sector employee (including if you are otherwise a student or retired)
  • Public Sector Agent
  • Self-employed
  • Person seeking employment
  • Artisan
  • Liberal profession
  • Self-employed person
  • Young person who has left the school system without qualification or diploma

Please note

Each employer must inform its employees of the possibility of using the CEP at the time of professional interview.

You can take advantage of the CEP outside your working time (e.g. during RTT, in the evening, on sabbatical or unpaid leave).

However, a branch or company agreement may lay down the conditions under which the FFS may be made during working time.

The CEP is organized in 2 levels.

It is possible to follow only the first level and to stop at this stage.

1st level: individualized welcome adapted to your person

It allows you to:

  • To carry out a first level of analysis of your situation and your request
  • Decide whether to continue with your approach
  • Identify actors who can help you.

Its objective is in particular:

  • Identify possible approaches (aid, services, training...).

Second level: personalized support

It allows you to:

  • Clarify your request and access personalized information on employment, training, available funding...
  • Characterize and specify your needs and priorities for professional development
  • To be assisted in the formalization and implementation of this project. This may be the case for the financing plan and the estimated timetable.

Please note

if you wish, the CEP can act as an intermediary with providers and funders to ensure that your project is funded in whole or in part.

Your employer may be aware that you were performing a skills assessment within the framework of skills development plan or the personal training account during working hours.

In addition, the FFS is free, while the skills check carried out with the personal training account is paid.

Finally, the skills check is generally limited to 24 hours. The FFS is not limited in time.
