Covid does not stop the desire to study, more technicians and professionals are enrolled in universities

Students are more satisfied with the school despite Covid, an increase in the proportion of those who study and work, and an increase in the number of university enrollments for those from a professional background. It was taken by AlmaDiploma, the association that serves the schools, whose main goal is to discover both the satisfaction indices of the graduates and those on employment results by analyzing the answers to the questionnaires for The student.

The detection

The survey concerns 37,000 2021 graduates who expressed their assessments regarding their five-year high school course, based on what they recognized at the time of completing the questionnaire, which took place shortly before graduation (Spring 2021). The remote survey, conducted in the fall of 2021, concerned 40,000 graduates in 2020 contacted one year after the end of their studies and over 47,000 graduates in 2018 contacted three years after graduation.

Scholastic experience

In terms of the ratings of the overall experience in the school, the teachers and the facilities, there was an increase in the satisfaction of the graduates of 2020 compared to the graduates of 2019. In 2021, the level of satisfaction with the school experience and the availability of Teacher dialogue back to the 2019 level, reached 80.3% and 70.4% respectively last year. Evaluation for some aspects of the school organization has improved between 2019 and 2021. For example, for recreational activities, appreciated by 72.5% of graduates in 2021. If they go back to the time of enrollment in high school, more than half of the graduates would confirm their choice: after the increase, which recorded between 2019 and 2020, in 2021 the proportion of those who rewrite will fall slightly, but remain larger than the 2019 figure and reach 60.7%. Graduates who are less convinced about the choice made at the age of 14, on the other hand, are mainly those of professional institutes.

After graduation

One year after graduation, 76.5% of 2020 graduates continue their education and are enrolled in a graduate course (59.8% are devoted only to university studies, 16.7% have chosen to combine study and work); 14.1% preferred to enter the labor market instead. The proportion of high school graduates enrolled at the university is significantly higher among high school students. Between 2019 and 2021, there will be an increase of almost 8 percentage points in the proportion of graduates who, one year after graduation, declare that they have enrolled at the university. Surprisingly, the difficulties of the labor market, strongly influenced by the pandemic, influenced the choice of those who graduated from technical and professional institutions, convinced them to enroll in university. The proportion of those who work alone decreases during the 3-year period (with more intensity for technicians and even more for professionals). On the contrary, the proportion of those who study and work is increasing, especially in the last year. Three years after graduation, 26.5% of graduates are dedicated to work only, 45.2% are dedicated to study only, while 20.7% combine study and work. At the level of the diploma type, the trends that emerge after one year are significantly confirmed. The increase in the proportion of those who combine study and work, and the decrease in the proportion of those who only work, have an impact on the characteristics of work one year after graduation. In the three-year period 2019-2021, there was an increase in non-standard employment, mainly in employment contracts (+3.6 percentage points) and a decrease in training contracts (-3.4 points). During the same period, part-time employment increased by 6.3 percentage points and net monthly earnings decreased by 4.0%. Finally, there is a trend improvement in the consistency between studies completed and work done (+3.3 percentage points).
