Impact of sustainable development on occupations and training programmes
Céreq has concluded a two-year cycle devoted to analysis of the links between training and employment in the light of changes in the energy sector and environmental considerations. This analysis has aimed to give context to the changes taking place in the world of work and to the links between changes in jobs and changes in education and training systems. The last seminar, which took place in Marseille on 21 June 2016, was attended by Italian researchers from ISFOL (Institut pour le Développement de la formation professionnelle des travailleurs/Institute for the Development of Workers' Vocational Training, http://www.isfol.it/en), who presented a study on identifying environmentally innovative occupational profiles as well as their statistical surveys on the education-to-work transition of young people leaving environmental education/training programmes in Italy.
Céreq and ISFOL have been working together for many years on establishing a European network of research centres in the area of education, training and employment. Sustainable development is one of the areas of investigation intended to impart fresh momentum to this collaboration.
