Céreq (French Centre for Research on Education, Training and Employment) is a public body under the aegis of the French Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Work, Vocational Training and Social dialogue. As a public Centre of expertise at the service of the key players in training and employment, Céreq has been involved for more than 40 years both in the production of statistics, research and the accompaniment of actions. It provides advice and proposals intending to clarify choices in the area of training policy at regional, national and international level. Céreq’s regional network includes fifteen regional centers based in University research units and most often members of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). The associated centers and their host units carry out specific studies in the context of Céreq’s fields of investigation. They also participate in collective studies corresponding to the main lines of the Centre’s research and carry out missions for the different partners in the regions. Céreq in Marseille has 120-member staff, of whom some 60 are researchers. There are some further 30 researchers and PhD students in the associated regional centers. It carries out statistical surveys on individuals or companies, draws on varied administrative sources to expand its databases and carries out its own qualitative and quantitative studies.

A network of competencies

In Marseille and throughout its regional network of associated centers, Céreq brings together competencies from economists, sociologists, statisticians, demographers and specialists in political science and education. The 15 regional centers are based in university research units, most of which are affiliated to the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). The associated research centers and their host laboratories conduct specific studies in the framework of Céreq’s fields of investigation. They also participate in joint studies corresponding to the main lines of the Centre research while participating to Céreq’s missions towards the different partners in the Regions.

Céreq in Marseille is organized in three different departments, each looking from a different angle at the issues that the relationship between training and employment generates.
- The Department Vocational Training and Qualifications (DFC) (which stands for Département Formation et Certification) is involved in analysing lifelong vocational training systems and their development, as well as the various modes whereby acquired skills are recognized in France and other European countries.
- The Department on Transition to Work and Occupational Trajectories (DEEVA) (which stands for Département Entrées et Evolutions dans la Vie Active) is mainly responsible for analyzing the transition-to-work paths of beginners on the labour market, depending on the level at which they left the educational system. This Department has developed an appropriate statistical tool for monitoring transition-to-work paths and occupational trajectories, the «Generation» surveys, conducted on cohorts of young people 3, 5, and 7 years after they have joined the labour market. In addition, this Department regularly contributes to international comparisons on the transition ways from school to work in various countries.
- The Department on Work, Employment and Professionalization (DTEP) (which stands for Département Travail, Emploi et Professionnalisation) is the Department responsible for analyzing how work is changing and how observed change is affecting the management of employment and the professionalization of workers.
