Immigrant Access to Training in France
The aim of this paper is therefore to go one step further by focusing on the differences which exist within the immigrant population, particularly in matters of administrative status. The hypothesis tested here is that the category established by the immigration authorities when awarding first residence permits is an important line of divide, impacting immigrants' later access to continuing education.
Descriptive and multivariate analyses will be undertaken using data from the TeO survey (Trajectories and Origins, INED-INSEE 2008-2009), including interviews of 5,000 immigrants who arrived in France as adults, after completing their initial education or who never attended school. Data from the ELIPA survey (Longitudinal survey on the integration of first-time immigrants) conducted on the 14,000 signatories of the 2009 Reception and Integration Contract (CAI) undertaken in 2010, 2011 and 2013 will also be used.
