France is performing at average level with regards to education and has done some major efforts during the last years. However, a few challenges remain and the French government still needs to find a solution to reduce educational inequalities. Additionally, professional training needs to be more generalized, as people are trained with very specific skills that only respond to a specific need on the market. VET’s and apprenticeship are underdeveloped and links between the education system and the labour market are still insufficient. One of the failure of the “alternance” system is that there are no sufficient means to prepare and accompany apprentices during their time within the companies.
