What is the Minister of Labour’s assessment of the training offered in the context of short-time work?

As a means to prevent redundancies during the economic slowdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the government of Luxembourg introduced a short-time working scheme. Additionally, the Ministry of Labour, Employment and the Social and Solidarity Economy offered vouchers for training. The members of parliament André Bauler and Carole Hartmann are enquiring about the Minister of Labour’s assessment of this training scheme.

« Durant la phase aiguë de la crise pandémique, Monsieur le Ministre du Travail, de l’Emploi et de l’Économie sociale et solidaire avait décidé de soutenir les personnes se trouvant au chômage partiel en leur offrant des formations continues dans les domaines les plus divers.

Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre du Travail, de l’Emploi et de l’Économie sociale et solidaire:

  • Monsieur le Ministre peut-il fournir des statistiques en la matière, données qui distinguent selon l’âge, le sexe, la provenance professionnelle, le niveau d’éducation des gens ou encore le lieu de résidence – si faire se peut ?
  • Quel a été le taux de participation parmi toutes les personnes éligibles ?
  • Combien de personnes ont participé à des formations mettant l’accent principal sur l’apprentissage de techniques digitales ?
  • Dans quelle mesure les participants ont-ils changé d’emploi en se dirigeant vers d’autres horizons professionnels »
