In this paper, the inequalities between employees in continuing vocational training matters are approached in terms of capability. The question of vocational training inequalities is addressed in two ways. First by focusing on employees’ real freedom of choice, the authors go beyond the narrow opposition between those who undergo vocational training and those who do not. Far from being mobilised at random, the various modes of vocational training undergone reflect the range of possibilities available to employees. It is therefore not at all realistic to assume that vocational training and the employees who have undergone this training form a single homogeneous category. Secondly, the reasons for lack of access to vocational training are elucidated. The characteristics of the employees with the least scope for action in this field closely resemble those of employees with no access to vocational training, which are well known. The common excuse that these employees are not interested in undergoing vocational training is therefore quite irrelevant.
