MARIGOT: President Daniel Gibbs co-chaired with Prefect Serge Gouteyron the plenary committee of Employment, Training and Professional Orientation (CEFOP), on Monday, November 29, 2021 at the Prefecture.
In this field, President Gibbs indicated that the Collectivity had just opened an emergency plan for vocational training that will benefit 456 job seekers already identified. A budget of 3.2 million euros will be made available for this plan over the next two months.
Two public contracts have been launched in recent weeks by COM, one for basic training and the other for training leading to qualifications and diplomas. These trainings are paid for the people who integrate the system.
Within the framework of the Investment Pact in Skills (PIC), President Gibbs announced that the Collectivity was committed to financially supporting the professionalization training of project leaders from the priority neighborhoods of the city policy, Sandy Ground and Quartier d’Orléans. This action will allow them to improve their skills beforehand in order to successfully build their project.
In addition, the Collectivité is currently finalizing the territorial integration plan, which provides for the deployment of integration workcamps for young people from Saint Martin, particularly for the cleaning of cemeteries, beaches and certain urban areas.
Another measure supported by the President and his teams: The territorial institution has committed itself to a process of insertion of social clauses in its public contracts. To this end, public procurement agents have been trained in these issues.
In the short term, for the three major reconstruction projects (Collège 900 de la Savane, Collège 600 de Quartier d’Orléans and the renovation of the Médiathèque), more than 18,000 hours of social integration will have to be applied by the companies holding the works contracts in 2022 and 2023.
These social clauses will enable the hiring of young people from St. Martin, the long-term unemployed or people receiving minimum social benefits, who will be monitored by the territorial services and integration actors in order to facilitate their access to sustainable employment.
Today’s CEFOP committee was also an opportunity to discuss two major measures taken by the Collectivité in the field of training and employment:
* The Gestion Prévisionnelle des Emplois et des Compétences Territoriales (GPECT): which will define the strategy and priorities in terms of employment and professional training.
* The Cadre Avenir program: which will support the development of the skills of the people of St. Martin and enable them to move into positions of responsibility.
Next step, this Wednesday, December 1, with the official launch of the strategy and the three-year plan of the GPECT.
