Results of an exclusive study by the Institut Mines-Télécom
This study looks at the challenges that lie ahead for in-company training. it was conducted by the Institut Mines-Télécom as a continuation of its participation in the “Osons l’industrie du futur” project led by the Alliance for Industry of the Future , on the evolution of trades and skills and how to prepare for them through training.
This study is aimed at all professionals in the training sector, in order to better understand the current developments in the field. It was conducted from June 2018 to June 2019 by Martine ASSAR, “Training, Professions and Skills” Project Manager at the Institut Mines-Télécom and Nabyla DAIDJ, Teacher-Researcher at the Institut Mines-Télécom Business School.
The main objective of the study was to make all training operators aware of the transformations taking place in the training sector, with a landscape that is widening to new entrants (such as companies) and incorporating new practices in digital technology.
This study sheds light on the changes brought about by digital technology in the training sector. It also shows how the traditional players in training position themselves in this new context, rethinking their role in relation to new, ‘disruptive’ competitors, who are helped by the LCAP law on choosing one’s professional future, which liberalizes apprenticeship and training. It allows, among other things, the creation of an apprentice training center for a company without the authorization of the Region. Supporting skills development is becoming an increasingly strategic issue.
On the other hand, it highlights the new means devoted to training which go towards diversifying resources, modes and paces of learning with new possibilities open to adaptive learning and more personalized learner/user paths. In this respect, traditional training operators also have an interest in diversifying their learning modalities in order to better respond to the evolving needs of their learners.
