An interministerial roadmap to link inclusion and sport

Is the sport headed for the presentation of interministerial action? In any case, this is what the signing by three ministers, on November 7 in Drancy, of a “common roadmap for the development of employment and integration through and in sport” suggests: Olivier Dussopt, Minister of Labour, Full Employment and Together, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra that of Sports and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and Carole Grandjean, Delegate for Vocational Education and Training are thus committed to a 2022-2024 plan with five axes, which must be strengthened – but expanded also – what has been done.

The goal is to reach the milestone of 100,000 annual beneficiaries of integration through sports actions in 2024, i.e. 5 times more than today.

Shared governance

A special feature of this roadmap: its governance. Along with a strategic committee made up of representatives of the DGEFP, Sports Department and ANS, a monitoring committee brings together stakeholders such as the players’ network on integration through sport. An instruction on decentralized services and a vade-mecum from each of the ministries will also ensure the territorial application of the actions. Finally, a “Grenelle of occupations and professions in sport” will be organized in the first half of 2023 to monitor the progress of the work.

First axis of this roadmap: improve the readability of the training and certification offer in the field of sport. To facilitate access to professions in the sector, data on around 900 existing certifications and training entries will be consolidated, engineering work on skills blocks will be carried out and, in December, a general inspection flash mission will be launched. in the articulation between the certifications belonging to the different certifying bodies. Finally, actions to support the professionalization and promotion of professions will be the subject of an agreement between the ministries on the one hand, and Afdas and other competent operators (Opco) concerned on the other.

Second axis: simplify access to work schemes and secure professional trajectories. The observation here is that it is necessary to facilitate the understanding and visibility of the many support systems for qualification (Sesame, youth engagement contracts, ANS assisted jobs, apprenticeship contracts, Pro-A3, POE4). Therefore, a reflection will be launched from the end of 2022 and in 2023 to optimize them and better express them, then design communication tools to promote them.

“At least one Geiq Sport per region”

Another communication will focus on the support provided by the State to Groups of employers for inclusion and qualification in sport (Geiq) in sport, structures that make it possible to train people and jobs in the pool. This support will take the form of funding the positions of professional integration counselor and development officer. Goal: to reach “at least one Geiq Sport per region” by 2024. In February, a study on the subject, requested by the government from the Profession sport and leisure, pointed to “real prospects”.

Another way, again: simplifying access to learning, to open this way to volunteers from coordinating structures or to facilitate this type of recruitment during major sporting events. Thus, an adaptation of the legal regimes of apprenticeship contracts and professionalization should be assessed during the main events, from 2023.


Third axis: strengthen the social role of sport. To allow the imitation and exchange of good practices, a “network of clubs that engage” in actions with the public of priority neighborhoods or for the training of sport by women or people with disabilities, will be- set up. A project team has already been set up. Goals: 100 clubs by 2022, 1,000 by 2023, 10,000 by 2024.

The ministries want to allow another networking, the actors of entering the sport, where a “panorama” carried out by the branch, in March, revealed abundance.

By 2023, methods and tools for measuring their impact on society will also be disseminated. Finally, Olivier Dussopt, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra and Carole Grandjean took part, on November 7 in Drancy, in an operation “From the stadium to work”, to also announce the development of “sports” job dating organized of Pôle emploi, temporary employment companies and local players. The goals are to go from 200 operations in 2022, to 300 in 2023 and 500 in 2024.

Identifying skills

Axis 4 of this roadmap aims to “recognize the skills” of volunteers as assets to the sector. A portion of sports will be given to the public service for the Validation of acquired experience (VAE) that the government wants to set up. Therefore, the GIP that governs the latter should include certifications and benchmarks of sports skills in the platform that is currently being designed.

Work is also being carried out to develop the promotion of sports experiences with the tool of the State startup Diagoriente, based on the experiment such as the “All and All Volunteers” program of the Departmental Council of Seine-Saint-Denis.

Finally, axis 5, which concerns the retraining of high-level athletes, also aims to recognize skills, but also to promote support systems in companies (goal: 1,000 athletes under of a professional integration contract at the end of the five-year term), the review of the specific support reviewed by Afdas with the aim of maintaining it in 2024 or the study of the extension to this public of the “Professional transition project”, a tool to help with conversions.
