A Closer Look

France – Employees in low-skilled jobs submit significantly fewer applications for training

Although employees in low-skilled jobs are as likely as any others to express an interest in receiving training, they actually submit significantly fewer applications for training. How can this gap be explained? While a wish to receive training goes hand in hand with employees’ perception of their career prospects, in conjunction with their aspirations, the submission of applications for training is determined more by companies’ practices.

The DEFIS surveys provide a means of capturing employees’ career aspirations in all their diversity. Those aspirations can be compared not only with employees’ interest in receiving training as expressed in applications submitted but also with their career situation and prospects and the context of the company in which they work. However, employees’ interest in training and the applications submitted emerge as two distinct realities. While the majority of employees express a desire to take part in training within the next ve years, with few di erences between the various skill levels, only 31% of employees submitted applications for training over the past year and those applications are very unequally distributed.
