Professional training is a means to access employment, as it aims to improve your skills and qualifications, consolidate your job search efforts, and facilitate your career progression. It can be undertaken before entering employment or throughout your professional life.
Different organizations, such as the operators of professional development counseling (including Pôle emploi and local missions), and the regional public service for guidance, coordinated by the regional council, can advise and guide you in relation to your needs. Private, fee-paying organizations such as the Association for Adult Vocational Training (AFPA) can also provide training. You can inquire about available training programs at information and orientation centers, universities, schools, forums, and trade fairs to specify your professional development goals.
In France, there are many opportunities for vocational training, which may include vocational schools, apprenticeships, internships, and continuing education courses. You can benefit from vocational training to obtain new skills, to enhance your qualifications, to acquire a professional degree or diploma, or to obtain a certification of professional qualifications.
In addition, some vocational training programs are tailored to specific categories of individuals, such as young people or those in job transition. In such cases, you may receive financial assistance from the government or other organizations.
It is essential to identify your needs and your professional goals, to know the training available to you, and to inquire about funding and support systems. By seeking professional training, you can improve your chances of finding suitable employment in France.
