Integration of craft training in the RNCP (Parliamentary question)
The criteria for registration at the National Directory of Professional Certification do not seem to be suitable for artistic professions. Some certifications are included in the RNCP citing favorable conditions for long-term integration into the labor market.
By Nathalie Blanpain – January 27, 2023.
Written question no.01852 from Mrs. Marie-Pierre Monier (Drom – SER) (OJ Senate 28/07/2022 – page 3960)
Ms. Marie-Pierre Monier drew the attention of the Minister of Higher Education and Research to the difficulties faced by craft training being integrated into the national list of professional certifications (RNCP).
Indeed, renewal or registration of professional degrees with the RNCP has recently been rejected by several recognized organizations for arts and crafts training. In addition, this refusal is often related to qualitative training under continuing education which gives rise to fears, in the more or less long term, of the loss of craft training centres. This is especially the case at the Drôme for the Maison de la Céramique du Pays de Dieulefit, which is the only center in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region and one of only two centers in France to issue the degree of ceramicist within the framework of continuous formation .
It seems that the certification criteria applied by the French competency do not allow to take into account the specificities of training in the artistic professions such as the recognition of the workshop as an important place of practice and learning, the important extension of training time in the arts. studio, or professional engagement in the arts and crafts and teacher training standard definition.
It also asks what steps are to be implemented to enable maintenance and development within the RNCP of craft training and particularly with regard to continuing education.

The ceramicist professional certification carried out by the ceramics house Pays de Dieulefit received a favorable opinion for registration for three years in the national directory of professional certifications (RNCP) with number RNCP37042 during the 22 November 2022 session of the French Skills Commission in charge of professional certification. It was emphasized that the adequacy of the job held in relation to the profession targeted and integration into the job is generally satisfactory but remains fragile and only partially fulfills the requirements of the 5 September 2018 law for the freedom to choose one’s career. the future in terms of setting the professional certification landscape and professional integration. Thus, if it is seen that certification settles quickly after obtaining certification, fragility at remuneration levels remains and has the potential to become an insufficient index of professional integration in trade. It takes at least three years after obtaining certification to achieve remuneration levels around the guaranteed interprofessional minimum wage. Professional integration criteria will be brought to attention, pursuant to the provisions of section R. 6113-9 of the labor law, by the commission mentioned above during requests for renewal of registration of this professional certification in the RNCP. It should also be noted that patents for ceramic arts and crafts brought by the national education system are currently registered with the RNCP until January 1, 2024. These two professional certifications will make it possible to broaden the training offer in this field. career in fine crafts.
