Training

Training

Many measures to improve the employment rate of aging assets call for the encouragement and development of continuing vocational training. It is also the subject of much research on its access, its contents and its effects on professional trajectories. However, it still seems to escape a synthesis exercise that would make it possible to understand its organization, its mode of operation and financing, the strategy of the actors who participate in its dynamics and especially the initiatives that are taken in its favor and the results achieved. Faced with the avalanche of proposals and recommendations for which professional training is the subject, it seems useful to provide a descriptive light on a universe at first glance confused and broke. Vocational training is becoming increasingly important because of ongoing technological and organizational changes that require continuous updating of qualifications. The aging of the working population is a demographic datum that pleads in favor of its development. Lastly, in recent years, the employment policy guidelines have led to a discourse on the adaptability and “employability” of workers.
