Increasing numbers of young people who left school with the baccalauréat are returning to education or training in the first few years after their departure from the education system. This trend does not simply reflect a strategic withdrawal in the face of a difficult labour market situation. While not all the qualifications obtained by these young people are awarded by higher education institutions, they are almost always vocational in nature. Holders of the baccalauréat from working-class families or those with a vocational baccalauréat are less likely than the others to seek further qualifications.
