This study looks at the impact of a new French training funding policy, the CPF (the personal training account) on an adult education English as a Foreign Language (EFL) diploma course at a French university. The findings reveal the influence of the funding policy on the course and students as well as the impact of the course on the students and the students on the course. It shows the tensions between compliance with government funding schemes and responding to market (student) demand and how, as a result, both institutions and students might opt out of government schemes.

The study employs Critical Theory (CT), an approach intended to achieve an understanding of current reality with a view to rebalancing inequality. It conducts a critical discourse analysis (CDA) of the data collected. The paper describes the study methodology in detail providing a useful model for similar studies in other institutions.
