Report on French branch agreements on training reform published

The numerous agreements on training reform, begun in 2014, have been the subject of a study carried out by the Fidal Observatory with the aim of synthesizing the numerous branch systems that can influence the vocational training of companies in France.

The various training sector agreements

Various branches of training have been integrated since the beginning of the reform. The 112 training sector agreements concluded since 2014 have been decrypted by the Fidal Observatory. According to this study, the CPF is at the top of the most-trained training systems. The latter is present in 92 branch agreements out of the 112. Secondly, there are 74 agreements concerning the periods of professionalization and contract, then 68 on professional maintenance and 62 on tutoring. One third of the agreements refer to systems such as the skills assessment, the CIF or the VAE. The law did not change much of the latter.

Agreements in figures

56% of the agreements deal with the employer’s training obligations, while 53% dealing with the CPF go beyond the law, such as an account match if the person or training is a priority in the branch . 60% of the agreements provided for a conventional contribution. Of these, 70% come from the services sector, 13% from the trade sector and 11% from the industry. The conventional contribution, in 86% of cases, is not allocated to a particular system. 21 agreements are aimed at the development of certification and qualification. 19 agreements focus on training activities for VSE / SMEs and 15 on professional equality. The absence of the GPEC and the fact that no agreement mentions the notion of corporate social responsibility or CSR is denoted.
