Induced labour mobility through continuing vocational training: Investigating its development and role in the French context during the last three decades
Formally introduced in 1971, the “Continuing Vocational Training (CVT)” system was specifically designed to promote workers’ “socio-professional promotion”. The contribution of its induced mobility to the fulfilment of this objective has always been considered as one of its key performance indicators. After an overview of the general structure of the CVT system, the first section of this paper investigates into the development and effect of its induced mobility on the beneficiaries’ socio-professional promotion over the last three decades. The results confirm the general tendency of an increasing horizontal mobility at the expense of a declining promotional mobility (known for its high link with socio-professional promotion). The second section of the paper completes this investigation by examining the concomitant change in the dynamics of vocational identity formation processes affecting the performance of the CVT system during the same period.
