Nine agreements relating to the implementation of the Cap Excellence project were signed on Monday July 26 by the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of National Education and the Office for Vocational Training and Work Promotion (OFPPT ).
Cap Excellence aims to upgrade training offers dedicated to the sectors of automotive, aeronautics, offshoring and textiles as well as the equipment of four cities of trades and skills (CMC) by educational industrial mini-chains.
Thus, a public-private governance model will be put in place within the framework of a Public Limited Company (SA), whose capital will be held at 51% by the professional association of the sector and 49% by the OFPPT, with a board of directors chaired by a professional from the sector.
The objective of this model is to ensure private governance for the modernization of educational equipment and the adaptation of training cards to skills needs in five OFPPT sectoral training establishments dedicated to the automobile in Kénitra, l aeronautics in Nouaceur, offshoring in Casablanca and textiles in Casablanca and Tangier.
These SA are given three years to achieve an integration rate of between 70% and 90% of successful candidates after 6 months, a satisfaction rate of at least 80% of companies in the sector and a rate of 100% for immersion courses. These 5 establishments will eventually target an overall training workforce of nearly 7,300 young people.
Regarding the deployment of educational industrial mini-chains, three will be generalist with different focuses at the level of three CMCs (Sous-Massa, l’Oriental and Tanger-Tétouan-Al Hoceima). The 4th will focus on Industry 4.0 at the CMC of Casablanca-Settat. The purpose of these industrial mini-chains is to offer at least 1,500 trainees per year a learning environment close to the reality of the company.
The ministry, through the Industrial Development and Investment Fund (FDII), will finance three general-interest mini-channels at the level of of 30 MDH, that is to say 10MDH each and two thirds of the cost of the industry 4.0 mini-chain for 33.33 MDH. The rest will be covered by the OFPPT up to a limit of MAD 16.67 million.
The OFPPT will ensure the acquisition and operation as well as the implementation of training modules and the assignment of qualified trainers.
