The district of residence of the high school graduates has there been an impact on their studies and their professional integration ? Clearly yes, according to a recent study by the Center for studies and research on qualifications.
The analysts have dissected the trajectories of the 19 500 young people leaving school in 2013, who lived in a priority neighbourhood of the city (social difficulties). Their conclusion ? There are strong disparities with the neighbouring districts, even in the blurring effects related to the social membership (origin, occupations of parents).
“These young people are more oriented towards the professional way : 38 % have a bac pro) and 38% bac general, compared to 23 % and 54 % for those of the other districts “, says Mélanie Vignale, coauthor of the study. The bac pro in the pocket, they are more likely to continue their studies, “no doubt to compensate for the fact of not having obtained the desired orientation “.
45 % leave the university without a degree
The catch is that to the university, 45 percent leave without a degree (compared to 29 % in other areas). “They apply to equality in BTS and license, but only a third is accepted in BTS. However, graduates of pro are less prepared at the university. “
This explains why 37 % of them are unemployed three years after training (compared to 22 % for those in the surrounding areas). Only 53 % become managers or intermediate professions (against 63 %).
“To an equivalent degree, the effect of district play at least, timer Melanie Vignale. It must therefore support these young people to make them aware of the training courses. For example, among high school graduates general, they are only 14 % to request a class, prep, against 22 % for the other districts. “
