In order for the apprentice training centres and training organizations to guarantee the continuity of their pedagogical activity, the Ministry of Labour has identified tools and resources to implement distance training, including the solutions and contents proposed by the CCCA-BTP, as disseminated on its corporate website.
Since 16th March, the reception of trainees has been suspended until further notice in all apprentice training centres and training organisations of France. In order to ensure the continuity of their educational activity, the Ministry of Labour has identified educational tools and resources to set up distance learning.
The aim of the Ministry is to enable this training centres to maintain a daily link with people already involved in a training programme, including apprentices. It is also a question to avoid breaks in the training programme and to reduce the distance between trainers and trainees, especially apprentices, through several tools: online teaching resources, individualisation and daily coaching by SMS or telephone, scheduling of exchange time in audio or video conferences, etc.
CCCA-BTP: Pedagogical solutions and resources referenced on the Ministry of Labour’s website
Several Vocational and Educational Training (VET) actors, including our French partner CCCA-BTP -specialised in building training and in public works trades through apprenticeships-, have volunteered to make apprentice training centres and training organizations available free of charge:
- Technical solutions for disseminating content and activities, running training courses and providing distance learning links;
- Teaching resources accessible to the apprentice training centres and training organizations.
This content, accessible free of charge for up to three months, is listed on the Ministry of Labour’s website, in this link.
In order to enrich this initial offer of distance learning content to ensure the continuity of the pedagogical activity, the French Ministry of Labour is calling for contributions from national VET actors, training organisations, apprentice training centres and content publishers, so that they can make training content available free of charge.
