Moroccan King Inaugurates New Generation Vocational Training Facility Aiming at Excellence, Innovation
Rabat, May 31 (TNA) King Mohammed VI inaugurated the Cité des Métiers et des Compétences (CMC, City of Trades and Skills) for the Rabat-Salé-Kénitra region on Tuesday in the town of Tamesna, a new-generation vocational training facility dedicated to excellence and innovation.
The Rabat-Salé-Kénitra CMC is part of an overall program to build 12 CMCs in different regions of the Kingdom, with an estimated total investment of 4.4 billion dirhams. It reflects the sovereign's special interest in the vocational training sector as a strategic lever for economic competitiveness and a promising avenue for the professional integration of young people.
It was carried out by the Office for Vocational Training and Employment Promotion (OFPPT) in accordance with royal directives and the new roadmap for the development of vocational training, which sets out new material, pedagogical and management criteria to ensure the quality of training and a certain convergence between the training provided and the real needs of the labour market.
In order to fulfill its mission, the Cité des Métiers et des Compétences is equipped with classrooms and living quarters that guarantee the development of technical and multidisciplinary skills as well as the personal development of the trainees. In fact, the CMC is home to 6 sectoral centers dedicated to the acquisition of business skills, with 6 integrated application platforms for immersive training based on "learning by doing", allowing complex simulations close to business reality to be carried out throughout the learning process.
