Les bénéficiaires de la validation des acquis de l'expérience. L'exemple de la Région Rhône-Alpes


  • Nathalie Havet


Our paper empirically investigates the profiles of candidates applying for Validation of Experential Learning (vae) procedure and those completing the procedure successfully. The analysis is based upon the exhaustive data of the candidates for vae in 2007-2009 in Rhone-Alps Region. We estimate econometric models which take into account the endogenous selection in each step of vae procedure. Our results show that while vae is a limited instrument for unemployed persons, it plays a true role for the unskilled or less qualified workers. The individual interviews at the start are decisive for the success of the procedure. Classification JEL : C35, J08, J24.
