C’est à partir de 15 ans que commence la transition des jeunes de l’éducation vers le marché du travail. Cette phase de transition se clôt vers l’âge de 30 ans. À l’âge de 29 ans, 83.7% des jeunes adultes ont un emploi, 4.1% sont occupés dans leur propre ménage et seulement 3.2% suivent encore une formation. Chez les 25-29 ans, la part des chômeurs est d’autant plus élevée que le niveau d’éducation est faible. De même, dans cette tranche d’âge, les personnes ayant un niveau d’éducation faible travaillent plus souvent dans leur propre ménage. Parmi les jeunes qui ont un emploi, la part des contrats de travail à durée déterminée (CDD) diminue avec l’âge : chez les personnes âgées de 21 ans, la part des CDD est de 23.9 % ; elle recule à 9.9% chez les personnes âgées de 29 ans. 32.2% de l’ensemble des jeunes âgés de 15 à 29 ans et ayant un emploi travaillent dans la branche « administration publique, éducation, santé et action sociale ». En revanche, le pourcentage correspondant n’est que de 0.9% dans l’agriculture. La part des femmes âgées de 15 à 29 ans est la pIus importante dans la branche des « autres services » (74.9%) qui inclut notamment les activités des ménages en tant qu’employeurs et donc les femmes de ménage. Les femmes sont peu représentées dans la construction (9.7%). Les étrangers de 15 à 29 ans sont surrepré-sentés dans la construction, mais également dans les « activités spécialisées, scientifiques et techniques et activités de services administratifs et de soutien » (environ 65% dans ces deux branches). En revanche, les étrangers sont sous-représentés dans la branche « administration publique, éducation et santé et action sociale » (14.7% de l’emploi des 15-29 ans dans cette branche), ainsi que dans l’agriculture (13.3%). Avec 46.9%, près de la moitié des jeunes de nationalité luxembourgeoise travaillent dans le secteur public et parapublic (administration publique, éducation, santé et action sociale). La répartition des jeunes étrangers sur les différentes branches d’activité est plus équilibrée. [less ▲]

Comme dans tous les pays européens, un grand nombre de mesures à destination des jeunes sortis du système scolaire sans qualification ont été mises en place au Luxembourg. Une étude systématique par interview semi-dirigée a été réalisée auprès des responsables formation de l'ensemble des 32 dispositifs répertoriés au Luxembourg, en distinguant les mesures spécifiquement destinées aux jeunes et celles destinées pour tout âge, jeunes compris. L'enquête visait surtout à déterminer les caractéristiques des pratiques pédagogiques mises en oeuvre avec les publics concernés. A partir du dépouillement du matériel recueilli, une typologie en trois catégories a été élaborée. Celle-ci est construite sur 10 indicateurs importants : pré-requis, statut de l'apprenant, profil de l'apprenant, activités de remotivation, description de la formation (contenus et méthodes), suivi, stages, formateurs, qualification/certification, débouchés. Elle distingue les formations par le travail (formation "sur le tas" permettant d'apprendre des tâches professionnelles spécifiques ainsi que des compétences sociales de base), les formations d'insertion socio-professionnelle (formations se basant sur un programme de formation défini et donnent droit à une attestation en fonction d'une évaluation) et les formations qualifiantes (formations permettant d'obtenir un diplôme ou un certificat officiel du ministère et donnant droit à un barème salarial légal). Chacun de ces dispositifs a une logique de fonctionnement propre, une certaine cohérence en fonction du profil du groupe cible, des objectifs visés et de la démarche socio-pédagogique adoptée. Chacun de ces dispositifs correspond à des possibilités de travail avec une certaine partie du groupe cible. Situées à des distances spécifiques sur l'axe de transition entre la formation initiale et la vie active, ces types de mesures combinent de façon variable des caractéristiques spécifiques du champ scolaire et du champ professionnel.

If the end of youth today generally can no longer bee described as "rite of passage" (Lebreton 2002, Galland, 2007), this might still be true for the situation of young people who have been in out-of-home care. Indeed, the "end of support", educational as well as financial, often ends for them by the age of 18. This is the case in France (in some cases to 21 years olds during the contract signing young adults) and in Luxembourg (sometimes till 24). Far from the possibility "of an endless experimentation" Bozon (2002), these young people face a "clean break" which plunges them into an adult life, which is more likely difficult to reach for them (INED 2006). A survey in France showed that care leavers "are greatly over-represented among homeless populations (estimated 23% of 18-24 years), compared with 2% in the general population). For Luxembourg a report by youth centres managers noted the difficulties for young people with no family support to fit into a very expensive rent. In France and in Luxembourg transitions of young people in care are marked by projects like: «projet individualisé», «projet d’autonomie» or «projet personnel à l’autonomie» (France) and «projet d’autonomisation» (Luxembourg ) The notion and the leading concept of autonomy which shapes these projects will be the focus of our discussion. Based on the results of three evaluations (Kerivel 2013) on the consequences of public policies and programs in this field, a study about the trajectories of 122 former foster children in four villages of children (Dubéchot, Doucet-Dahlgen, Kerivel 2014) and on the first results of the TransCare project (qualitative interviews with care providers) we will discuss what they mean for understanding the transitions of young people growing out-of-care to adulthood. A qualitative study is ongoing on the process of transition in Luxembourg (2015) and the experiences of young people. Results pointed at the isolation of many young people (by changing places and losing relations) and the feelings of powerlessness of the professionals who face an early exit for "young people who are not yet autonomous". Conversely, a place or a group that continues facilitates strong links. The transitions of young people leaving care can be characterized as “zones of vulnerability” (Castell 2000). We will contrast the idea of individualized autonomy (“an individualized defined and stable project”) by the concept of social capital (Bourdieu, 1980) and the concept of a relational agency (Burkitt 2015, Barad 2004, Emirbayer 1997), which points at social and material dependencies and interrelatedness. Herein we see a productive way to enrich the debate on care leavers by a perspective on the agentic potentials. The individual project is embedded in social relations and does not exist without a collective and it cannot be achieved without social resources. [less ▲]

de Beaufort C, Jarosz-Chobot P, Frank M, Frank M, de Bart J, Deja G. Transition from pediatric to adult diabetes care: smooth or slippery?Objectives: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the practices of diabetes health care providers concerning the transition from pediatric to adult diabetes care. The information presented here may help increase awareness of the organization of transitional care for young people with diabetes and prevent the loss of follow-up during this vulnerable period in their lives.Methods: A questionnaire with an explanatory letter was sent to all members (n = 578) of the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD). A follow-up mailing was sent 4 months later.Results: In total, 92 questionnaires (16%) from members representing 36 countries were included in the analysis. In 76% of the centers, youth are seen until the age of 18 yr; 36% of the pediatric centers see adults > 25 yr; 30% report children under the age of 16 receive follow up from adult diabetologists or internists. About half of the programs already have a structured transition process usually targeting youth 16-25 yr of age. The majority of responders propose that preparation for transition starts at least 1 yr prior to leaving the pediatric center.Conclusion: Youth with type 1 diabetes often struggle to keep diabetes management a priority and find it challenging to maintain optimal metabolic control. When they graduate from pediatric care, some of these young people opt out of care altogether, only to resurface in the medical system when they develop complications which may have been prevented. Our survey of diabetes health care professionals in 36 countries worldwide shows that the actual transition practices in many places are far from optimal and require improvement. Transitional care should start early and strategies should promote uninterrupted, comprehensive, and accessible adult care. © 2009 John Wiley & Sons A/S. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: To create a theoretical framework for analyzing cultural influences on older people’s transition into a nursing home (NH). THEORIES: Action theories in cultural and developmental psychology (Boesch, 2001; Brandtstädter, 2006), social representations theory (Marková, 2012), theory of culture as a semiotic regulation system (Valsiner, 2007). METHODS: (1) Conceptualization of NH care and family care as alternative action paths for meeting the needs of older persons and their relatives. (2) Conceptualization of culture as a product of human actions and as offering different possibilities of care-related actions. (3) Systematization of care-related goals and instrumental values of NH care versus family care. (4) Theoretical mapping of cultural factors on proximal determinants of elder care decisions and actions. RESULTS: The framework contains the following propositions. Older people and family caregivers hold multiple goals (e.g., welfare of family carers, welfare of old person). NH care can meet some goals and simultaneously frustrate others. The effects and choice of NH care depends on a variety of cultural factors: Legal regulations for warranting care quality (e.g., nursing home laws), economic concepts and practices (e.g., business models of elder care) and professionalization (e.g., staff training). Family care depends on institutionalized options for reconciling job-, care- and other family-related duties (e.g., mobile care services, day care units) and for compensating expenses (e.g., care insurance). Cultural concepts of care dependency influence the meanings that individuals attribute to NH care. CONCLUSIONS: The framework specifies cultural factors relevant for older peoples’ transition into a NH and delineates mediating paths. It invites other sciences specialized on relevant cultural factors (e.g., law, political science, social economics) to further refine the analysis. An identification of cultural factors affecting NH care opens new options for improving care quality or living conditions of older persons, family and professional carers. [less ▲]

Doctoral education is about knowledge creation as much as producing a highly qualified workforce on an increasingly global market. Career development, other than for an academic career, has thus far received little attention. With an increasingly global competition and workforce, and an increasing number of doctoral candidates, the question is whether and how we should prepare doctoral candidates to move successfully to the workforce, taking into account the wide variety of careers.

Abstract. Transitive consistency of pairwise transformations is a desir- able property of groupwise image registration procedures. The transfor- mation synchronisation method [4] is able to retrieve transitively con- sistent pairwise transformations from pairwise transformations that are initially not transitively consistent. In the present paper, we present a numerically stable implementation of the transformation synchronisa- tion method for a ne transformations, which can deal with very large translations, such as those occurring in medical images where the coor- dinate origins may be far away from each other. By using this method in conjunction with any pairwise (a ne) image registration algorithm, a transitively consistent and unbiased groupwise image registration can be achieved. Experiments involving the average template generation from 3D brain images demonstrate that the method is more robust with re- spect to outliers and achieves higher registration accuracy compared to reference-based registration.
