First experiences on the labour market have a profound influence on later working life. This report on France contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school-to-work, and a set of policy recommendations for further action by the public authorities and social partners.

Improving the outlook for youth employment is a major concern in the OECD countries. In many countries, the declining number of young people in the workforce and the ageing of the population have not led to improvements in the outlook for youth employment, and the economic downturn in 2008 has severely affected the most vulnerable youth. It is thus indispensable that young people have the skills required on the labour market and that countries develop efficient mechanisms to facilitate a sustainable transition from school to work.
