The challenges of jobseekers in the face of professional training: gaining access to training and integration
According to a survey carried out in 2012, the unemployed gained access to vocational training less frequently than those in employment, over a period of one year. They met, in order to take up training or even to plan it, barriers that were specific to them, such as the feeling of not having the right level; they also harboured greater reticence towards training. The route leading to the start of vocational training for the jobless involves multiple interventions and sometimes long waiting periods. Among the unemployed that have followed vocational training, the vast majority reported their satisfaction and the present or future usefulness of the training. In a dynamic perspective, persons already well integrated in the job market were those with the best prospects of finding work after training. Given identical individual characteristics, trainees who benefited from targeted training with a high operational content, in specific professional areas or to improve themselves in a profession, enjoyed faster access to a job.
