more and more French people are opting for professional retraining

Due to various factors such as poor conditions, salary or the Covid, many French people want to change jobs. But not everyone manages to go through with their approach.

Inflation and purchasing power are one of the current priorities of French women, who also think about their well-being at work. If the latest surveys are not to be believed, many are unhappy at work. Retraining is increasing, thanks in particular to the training account scheme. “Over the past five years, one in four working people in the private sector has undergone professional retraining, according to a report by France Competences. % against 29% for example for executives. As for success, it is more complicated. The success rate is only 20% for the unqualified, against 34% for executives. The less qualified, the more we want to change jobs but no more and it’s complicated”explains Alexandre Hébert from the writing of franceinfo.

These numerous retrainings are also due to the professional training account, the famous CPF, which has been talked about a lot to denounce scams. But what exactly is the CPF account? “It’s a sum of money that employees have at their disposal for training. Each year worked generates rights, 500 euros per year on average. It’s an interface on a website with the available amount of your rights and another interface to choose the training. Regarding scams, there are indeed a lot of them. To avoid them, two golden rules: first of all, never trust a cold call and, above all, use the address official”concludes Alexandre Hébert.
