The Role of Unions and Management in Vocational Training in France.
d'Iribarne, Alain; Lemaitre, Annick
This document studies the role of unions and management in vocational training in France. Through an analysis of existing and historical structures governing cooperation and coordination between the social partners and the public bodies responsible for vocational education and training, an in-depth investigation was carried out and proposals for improved dialogue at various levels were made. This report contains three sections: a general analysis, a sectoral analysis, and synthesis and recommendations. Part I examines the role of unions and management in the general system of vocational training in France, including their roles in the establishment of norms and the implementation of vocational training. Part II looks at the implementation of vocational training in the metal and construction industries and in banking. Part III addresses the functioning of the bodies and their dynamic issues and perspectives, including the limited performance and difficulties of the French system. Some recommendations are made for the future. The document concludes with 31 references, a list of abbreviations, and appendices summarizing developments, illustrating organizational relationships, classifying and outlining training expenditures by size of firm.
