of Employment and of Research (12 out of 39). They belong to the national
priorities in VET, esp. following the law of 05/04/2004 to measure impact.
The projects are accompanied by surveillance of, and reflection on, examples
of best practice by trainers, in firms as much as in training and guidance
of guidance and training professionals
action researches of support for the professionalisation of VET and for
guidance professionals (5 out of 39) have been launched to encourage the
application of the employment and training policies.
of the training offer
significant group of projects (10 out of 39) concerns the training offer.
Most of them are evaluations and comparisons of the training offer in enterprises,
and in the guidance and training centres, both regionally and internationally.
These studies are usually aimed at answering the specific needs of certain
categories of people (youngsters, people in precarious situations or unemployed
people) or certain industry sectors.
individuals’ professional paths
significant number of projects (8 out of 39) tackle VET from the point
of view of training and professional strategies. The emphasis is put on
ways to secure the professional paths of individuals. The studies seek
to evaluate the development of the status, personal and professional, of
the employees, realised by training or the VAE approach.
regard to innovation, some projects of e-learning have been conducted in
the training centres (4 out of 39), in some pre-defined types of activity,
and their evaluation is underway.
(organisational, corporate level)
great number of projects deal with the development of competencies and
the management of human resources in workplaces (12 out of 39), which they
approach along three distinct lines:
(labour market, economic level)
level of the business strategy, when VET is used in the management of human
resources to leverage the economic and social performance of firms.
level of employees, the development of skills is tackled individually along
the lines of professional trajectories and strategies of advancement. These
studies focus more particularly on the older workers and the young workers,
and investigate the mobility of individuals.
at the level of the employee/ employer relationship - this relationship
tends to become individualised.
a significant number of projects of national and transnational scope concern
themselves with the fight against illiteracy, the development of transparency
of qualifications and diplomas and the re-evaluation of apprenticeship,
in particular in the Education Nationale.
