To investigate individual trajectories is to get to grips with career trajectories and initial and continuing training pathways. Céreq analyses all these trajectories and pathways and their evolution, in a context in which there tends to be greater permeability between employment and education/training and between initial and continuing education/training. Céreq bases its studies on field observations, interviews and statistical surveys. Among the last named, the Générations surveys (a national programme that tracks the early years of the working lives of young people with all levels of education and training) and the Defis surveys (on continuing training for employees) provide insights into these trajectories in all their complexity and over their entire duration.

The question of retraining lies at the heart of current employment policy issues. However, wanting to change occupation is no guarantee of completing a retraining programme, even less of finding a job. While low-skilled blue- and white-collar workers are the ones most likely to seek a change, they are also the ones who benefit least from a retraining programme. Workers’ desires to retrain are…

This issue deals with the professionalisation of education. In the communications media, among politicians and among decision-makers, the cause is heard: professionalisation would be an obvious answer to unemployment.

Mobility is an important (lifelong) issue for training and employment. This Formation Emploi issue highlights the existence of a double social and spatial distance. Sometimes, being mobile creates training or employment opportunities. This mobility, whether desired or not, is based on the existence of resources and their solicitation.
