The benefits of professional training are well-perceived, but all the brakes are released, according to a study by Harris Interactive for the Cnam published on 6 June.
The training agencies are going to have to make efforts. The French certainly have a good picture of what the training can bring them over to their professional lives, but they are more doubtful about their content. This is what emerges from the exclusive study conducted by Harris Interactive for the national Conservatory of arts and trades (Cnam), published on 6 June.
Less than six in ten French believe that the training offer is adapted to the labour market and sufficiently innovative. It is a subject, at a time when the government is due to the increase in skills of a lever in its fight against unemployment. "The French have understood that it was a tool for progress in their career, they want to enter, underlines Olivier Faron, general administrator of Cnam. But they expect the quality and professionalisation." Training be adopted in the course of the journey, heterogeneous trainees... "For a long time, the offer has suffered from a lack of rigour. Some may have been disappointed, he acknowledges. But it has changed from that time."
Resume control of its own destiny
Plan 500 000 priority training under François Hollande, investment Plan skills launched by Edouard Philippe in September 2017, the initiatives of successive governments are to bear fruit, at least in the minds of the French. Far from the idea, daunting and, often evoked, of a back-to-school, the training continues and its benefits are well perceived. According to the survey, more than 8 out of 10 French see it as the chance to take their destiny in their hand in case of difficulty, a personal accomplishment, a "maximizing employability" and a weapon against the risk of decommissioning or social precariousness.Your support is essential.

But now, on the ground, the brakes are many. As the lack of geographical proximity of the organizations. Only 58% of the respondents found that the training offer is accessible everywhere on the territory. Problem : 57% of them do not intend to make a journey of more than 30 minutes between their home and their place of training. Form in medium-sized towns is therefore crucial.
in addition, "the question of terms is essential," says Olivier Faron, for which the digital does not have all the answers, and requires an accompaniment. And then, the companies have a role to play. "It would be necessary to develop training in work situation which are now recognized by the law," he proposes, while acknowledging that this is not easy for the SMES, which do not always have the time nor the means to do so.
The personal account of training, a tool still blur
"The need for employability, extremely concrete, should not obscure the recognition of the title or degree obtained and the need to form any life-long, alert the director of the Cnam. We think too often to the formation in the very short term, when we have a problem of employment. Training throughout life is not in the national culture."

The personal account of training (CPF), the contours of which have recently changed, is there for that. According to the survey, three-quarters of the French say they have already heard of this device (72%), mainly men assets from categories well-off or who have already attended a training. Then, in December 2018, 33 million people had a personal account for training powered (with a positive balance) and that nearly a quarter of them (7.8 million) had been activated. According to the survey, only 38% of French people know what it is, precisely. The future of the app, expected in the fall, with an account powered in euros, will it change the game ?
