This is the sine qua non for achieving concrete results. In declining his roadmap for the reindustrialization of France, this Thursday, Emmanuel Macron insisted on the training to be developed to achieve this.
This reindustrialization which pes, according to the Elysée, by “the battle of decarbonization”. Green industry projects, from hydrogen to batteries to carbon capture or the production of solar panels and wind turbines, will result in the opening of 15,000 training places at the start of the next school year for an “additional investment”. of 700 million euros, announced Emmanuel Macron.
Use of the France 2030 plan
These places will be financed with the means of the France 2030 plan and will mobilize the CFAs, engineering schools and universities, said Emmanuel Macron. This plan is already used to feed the new technical platforms in vocational high schools.
For the Head of State, it is “a variation for the superior” of the announcements made last week, on vocational high schools . The 700 million must be used to “change the map of training at any level of diploma, from vocational high school to master’s and doctorate, through the requalification of employees”. To have, “at the scale of each territory, a map of needs and, next to it, adapted needs”.
The model is that of the battery academy in Dunkirk, that of the hydrogen sector in Occitania or even production schools, with “adapted pathways” between territory and sector, to “find dropouts and training for industrial trades.
“The industry needs skills, while 60,000 jobs are currently unfilled and there will be 100,000 in the nuclear industry in the coming years,” said the Head of State. We must do everything to train more engineers, technicians, operators, employees, in all areas and at all levels. »
Priority to short courses
During the presentation of the reform of vocational high schools, the Head of State had already indicated that he wanted to “accelerate and deploy the recruitment of ociate professors for those who have skills in the professions of the future – hydraulic, wind or nuclear”. He then mentioned the development of short courses after the baccalaureate, lasting one year, which are commonly called “additional mentions”.
These training courses “increase the employability of young people by at least 20 points”, had slipped the Head of State. Businesses “don’t need [les jeunes] go for three or four years [d’enseignement] higher, but one year post-bac”, he justified then.
INDUSTRIAL jobs are currently unfilled, underlined Emmanuel Macron
These “additional mentions” must be renamed to “amplify” these short professional post-baccalaureate courses very focused on professional integration. Today, they concern 4,500 pupils. The objective is to open 20,000 places at the start of the 2025 school year, the entourage of the Minister of National Education, Pap Ndiaye, indicated last week.
The objective pursued is now broader, since the system envisaged aims, according to the Elysée, to “create places at all levels, in all sectors of low-carbon industries, therefore training for professional baccalaureates, technicians, perhaps be masters or even [doctorats] in certain areas for the most complex subjects and also retraining in the automotive field”.
