La formation professionnelle des jeunes : quelle valorisation de la spécialité ?

Abstract : The educational policies for the vocational trainings often suppose that the formation in a speciality is necessary to reach a job of identical speciality. This assumption is interrogated on the theoretical and empirical level. The study is carried out from French data, representative of the young people left the education system into 1998 observed over the period 1998-2001. For this generation, the majority of the young people from the vocational trainings occupy in 2001 a job of another speciality than their speciality of formation. For as much, the training specific to employment is profitable, the wage returns of the adequacy being relatively important. However, the speciality of formation also has a wage output independently of the speciality of employment. Thus, the employers do not remunerate only the correspondence with the speciality of job, they also remunerate on a hierarchical basis the specialities which signal transferable contents. Results are not in contradiction with the Assignment theory.
