The Financing of Vocational Education and Training in France. Financing Portrait. CEDEFOP Panorama.
Michelet, Valerie
This report examines the financing of the two components of France's vocational education and training (VET) system. They are initial vocational training (IVT), which includes upper secondary and short forms of higher education, and continuing vocational training (CVT), which aims to help workers adapt to changes in working techniques and conditions and promote their social advancement. The following are among the topics discussed in parts 1-5: (1) funding mechanisms for training (trends in the French economy; trends in employment and training policy; collective agreements; laws/decrees and the Labour Code; public authorities; joint sectoral bodies); (2) IVT (sources of funds for IVT at schools, apprenticeship, alternance training contracts, and vocational training trainees; resource distribution mechanism; outlook); (3) sources of funding for CVT and distribution of resources for funding the training of private-sector employees and civil servants; (4) funding of training for job seekers and distribution of the training funds through role sharing between the central government and regions and through partnerships between the social partners, the government, and the regions; and (5) the future of VET funding. Thirty-nine tables/figures are included. Appended are the following: main legislation and regulations on continuing vocational training; 10 additional tables; and a glossary. (MN)
