Since 2018, 1.079 million additional people have been trained thanks to the “

PIC

” for which 7.2 billion euros have been “

already committed

”.

It is in the trajectory "

of what was planned

" by this plan of 15 billion euros over five years for young people removed from the labor market and job seekers with little or no qualifications, she continued. .

An increasing rate of access to training

And "

we will achieve the objectives of two million additional courses over the entire five-year period with the projections that we make for 2021 and 2022

", with respectively 530,000 and 510,000 entries in training planned thanks to the PIC, and 150,000 others via the recovery plan .

In total, since 2019, more than one million entries into training have been recorded each year, of which around 40% financed by the PIC, whereas before 2015 the number of entries into training for people excluded from employment was an average of "

650,000

" people each year, she detailed.

As a result, the rate of access to training is improving: while in 2015, one in ten unemployed people were taking training, in 2020 "

nearly one in six unemployed

" is concerned, according to Ms. Seiler.

The rate of access to employment six months after training, which had increased by 1.5 points before the health crisis, to 57.6%, on the other hand suffered from the Covid-19 crisis, falling to 50, 8%.

This drop of 7 points will "

undoubtedly

" not be completely caught up, because the crisis "

will take a few months and a few years to reabsorb

", but the objective is to catch up in part, which will depend "

on the recovery, on the the reopening of a certain number of closed sectors

”, indicated the High Commissioner.
