What is the CAF or Chèque Annuel de Formation?

The Annual Training Cheque (CAF) is an annual cheque, issued by the State of Geneva, of the value of CHF 500, which can be used to finance your French courses. The aim of this subsidy is to encourage the professional development of adults by offering them financial support for their training.

Depending on the type of training you are looking for, you can benefit from the CAF for three consecutive years or just once.
