Nine agreements relating to the implementation of the “Cap Excellence” project were signed, on Monday in Rabat, with the objective of making human resources and skills a major asset for the attractiveness of investment and the strengthening of business competitiveness.

Signed on the one hand by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and the Green and Digital Economy, the Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Office of vocational training and labor promotion (OFPPT) and on the other hand by the Grouping of Moroccan aeronautical and space industries (GIMAS), the Moroccan Association for Automobile Industry and Trade (AMICA), the Moroccan Association for textile and clothing industries and the Moroccan Federation of Services Outsourcing (FMES), these agreements aim to upgrade training offers dedicated to the automotive, aeronautics, offshoring and textile sectors.

They also concern the equipment of 4 cities of trades and skills (CMC) by industrial and educational mini-chains. Thus, a public-private governance model will be put in place within the framework of a limited liability company, whose capital will be 51% owned by the concerned professional association and 49% by the OFPPT, with a board of directors chaired by a professional from the sector.

These limited liability companies will have three years to achieve an integration rate of 70% to 90% of the successful graduates after 6 months, a satisfaction rate of at least 80% of companies of the sector and a rate of 100% for internships. Speaking on this occasion, Director General of OFPPT Loubna Tricha noted that “the particularity of this public-private partnership is to have made performance management at the heart of its action, through formalized performance contracts, with business plans with figures and measurable KPIs”.

She indicated that, for the deployment of industrial and educational mini-chains, 3 will be general ones with different focuses at the level of 3 CMCs, Souss-Massa, the eastern region and Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima.

For his part, the president of AMICA Hakim Abdelmoumen, underlined that there was “an anticipation of the needs of the automotive sector” in terms of training, noting that “Cap Excellence” will be able to ensure a private governance for the modernization of educational equipment and the adaptation of training to the skills needed.
