Abstract

This article focuses on the professional integration of graduates from the Valais University of Teacher Education. A quantitative analysis of empirical data from a survey shows that the labour market integration of respondents (77% response rate) three months after graduation, all sectors combined, is overall good but varies according to respondents’ profiles. This survey reveals a high level of external effectiveness of the training but an inequity of professional achievement. Indeed, men’s integration seems better than that of women who are more likely to work at a reduced activity rate, in several municipalities and as replacement teachers.
