INSEE PACA : d'ici 2030, une croissance de l'emploi toujours portée par les services

INSEE PACA : d'ici 2030, une croissance de l'emploi toujours portée par les servicesÀ l'horizon 2030, la région Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur compterait 5,4 millions d'habitants dont 2,4 millions d'actifs, soit près de 450 000 habitants et 200 000 actifs supplémentaires. Cette évolution s'accompagnerait d'une modification sensible de la structure par âge des actifs. La part des 60 ans ou plus ferait ainsi plus que doubler, pour atteindre 10 % de la population active.

En 2030, la région compterait 2,1 millions d'emplois potentiels occupés, soit 187 000 emplois de plus qu'en 2010. Si le tissu productif régional suivait les grandes tendances décrites par le Centre d'analyse stratégique, l'emploi régional à l'horizon 2030 serait porté par les activités dites présentielles, c'est-à-dire répondant aux besoins de la population présente, et le dynamisme des services aux entreprises. À l'inverse, il se replierait fortement dans les industries qui ne parviendraient pas à se renouveler.

Bilan 2012 des contrats de professionnalisation en Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

Bilan 2012 des contrats de professionnalisation en Provence-Alpes-Côte d'AzurLa Direccte Provence-Alpes-Côte d`Azur publie une étude relative au bilan 2012 du contrat de professionnalisation dans la région.

Selon le résumé de l'étude, "Il apparaît qu`après une hausse quasi-continue depuis la mise en place du dispositif en 2004, le nombre d'entrées en contrat de professionnalisation en Paca régresse considérablement au cours de l`année 2012 : - 10,5 %, soit la plus forte baisse annuelle depuis la création du dispositif. Le nombre de contrats s'établit ainsi à 12 200, niveau proche de la période d`avant-crise de 2007. Les tendances d`évolution sont semblables au plan national.
Ce fléchissement atteint particulièrement le secteur de la construction, qui demeure tout de même surreprésenté par rapport à la France. Une très large majorité des alternants en contrat de professionnalisation continue de s'orienter vers le secteur des services, dont la part s`est accrue par rapport à 2011. En revanche, le secteur industriel est toujours sous-représenté en Paca par rapport au niveau national.
Au vu de la structure sectorielle (surreprésentation de la construction et sous-représentation de l'industrie), la taille moyenne des établissements recruteurs est beaucoup moins élevée en Paca qu'en France. De plus, pour ces deux niveaux géographiques, la part des plus grands établissements progresse en 2012.
Par rapport à 2011, davantage de bacheliers entrent en contrat de professionnalisation. La part des détenteurs d'un diplôme de l'enseignement supérieur reste plus faible en Paca qu'au niveau national. Les formations qui visent une qualification reconnue par la branche professionnelle sont moins fréquentes en Paca qu`en France, et sont moins présentes en 2012. Ces formations concernent davantage les personnes qui rentrent en contrat de professionnalisation suite à une recherche d`emploi.
Plus qu'en 2011, les contrats à durée indéterminée (CDI) sont rares. Ils s'adressent surtout à un public diplômé et expérimenté.
Les formations spécialisées dans les services prennent de l'ampleur en 2012. Les alternants en contrat de professionnalisation formés dans ce domaine bénéficient de longues durées de contrat et de formation."

Adult learning a necessity, not an option – Cedefop Director

Cedefop - European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training

At a conference on adult learning, organised by the European Commission in Vilnius (9 and 10 December), Cedefop Director James Calleja took part in a panel discussion debating what skills and means should be used to equip adults for the 21st century.

‘We need to remind ourselves that key competences are the main indicator of what skills people need to enter and sustain their position in the labour market,’ said Mr Calleja.

These include 'traditional' competences like mother tongue, foreign languages, basic competences in maths and science, and digital competence, but also more 'transversal' ones such as learning to learn, social and civic competence, initiative taking and entrepreneurship, and cultural awareness and expression.

For young people to stay in education, labour market measures are also needed

Cedefop - European Centre for the Development of Vocational TrainingToo many young people leave education (including vocational education) too soon. Yet early leavers are at greater risk of long-term unemployment, poverty and crime, while the cost of early leaving to the European economy is now 1.25% of GDP.

But keeping people in (vocational) education is not only an issue for vocational education and training alone. It also depends on wider labour market and social welfare issues: initial salary policy, employer participation, access to professions, the perceived value of qualifications, and the range of guidance services available to students.

Cedefop’s latest briefing note Keeping young people in (vocational) education: what works? examines the complex reasons behind early leaving from vocational education and suggests policy options to help early leavers acquire a qualification.

Massive, Open, and Course Design

By Michael FeldsteinMartin Weller has a great blog post up about course design responses to MOOC completion rates. He starts by arguing that, while completion rates are not everything in MOOCs, they are not nothing either. A lot depends on whether you think completion is an important metric to meet the course goals because, for example, the course is designed to help remedial students pass into a non-remedial track, or whether having students explore the content in a non-comprehensive way accomplishes your course goal. (Martin brings up an analogy by Stephen Downes that nobody complains about the low newspaper completion rates, which I have never heard before and which I love.) More...

Commercialising Public Research: New Trends and Strategies

Commercialising Public Research: New Trends and StrategiesPolicy-makers have high hopes for public research as a new source of growth. This research has been the source of significant scientific and technological breakthroughs that have become major innovations. Well-known examples include the Global Positioning System (GPS), MP3 technology, and Apple’s Siri voice recognition technology.
The substantial economic benefits from public research, and demands by governments to reap them, have led to increased efforts toward more direct engagement in downstream commercialisation activities. In light of this, institutions and infrastructures that support the networks and markets for transferring and commercialising public research results are being reviewed across many OECD countries, as traditional approaches and models are facing considerable limitations and may be restraining further scientific advance and broader innovation.
The OECD report Commercialising Public Research: New Trends and Strategies looks closely at this evolution and provides a comprehensive review of government and institutional level policies aimed at enhancing the transfer and exploitation of public research results. The publication also compares performance in OECD countries, universities and public research institutions using both traditional and new indicators.

Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina

By Michael Feldstein. While it is well hidden, wrapped in a very careful press release, Phil’s sharp eye has caught the details in SJSU’s press release about the next phase in the Udacity pilot that suggest the partnership between the school and the company is winding down. When Carl Straumsheim of Inside Higher Ed asked an SJSU spokesperson point-blank whether Udacity would continue to be involved with the courses, the reply he got was “Good question for Udacity.” More...
