As part of their commitment to the professional integration of young Guianese people, Pôle Emploi, OPCALIA*, the GRETA** network and GBH are joining forces for the first time to promote sustainable employment through vocational training and work-study programmes. The partners are thus establishing a 24-month work-study training programme, during which time students will prepare to sit their Bac Pro Commerce exams. 19 students – pre-selected on the basis of Pôle Emploi’s ‘simulation recruitment method’ (MRS) and GRETA’s placement tests – are enrolled in this innovative programme that began on 9 September 2019.
Once candidates have obtained their diploma, GBH agrees to hire them as apprentices on permanent contracts.
* Organisme Paritaire Collecteur Agréé (OPCA) – a vocational training fund – approved by the French state
** Associations of local public educational institutions that pool their skills and resources to offer continuous training courses for adults.
