2013 survey of the 2010 cohort: The gap between levels of qualification widens as the crisis deepens
In 2013, three years after leaving the education system, 22% of economically active young people were looking for work. This is the highest level ever observed in Céreq’s school-to-work transition surveys. The increase compared with the 2004 cohort is 16 percentage points for non-graduates and 3 percentage points for graduates of long degree programmes. Nevertheless, first jobs are neither more precarious nor less well paid.
