Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, France’s Minister of Education, Higher Education and Research, and Xavier Chéreau, PSA Peugeot Citroën’s Executive Vice President, Human Resources, renewed, the framework agreement underscoring their commitment to actively developing job skills in the automotive industry at a signing ceremony held, on November 12, at Jean-Pierre Timbaud professional high school in Aubervilliers, north of Paris.

Youth employment is a core issue in France and a key concern for PSA Peugeot Citroën. This partnership, initiated 15 years ago, is designed to train young people for the professions required by the automotive industry.  

To fulfil this mission, PSA Peugeot Citroën leverages the expertise of France’s professional training system. Under the multi-year framework agreement, the Group works with professional training schools specialised in a range of areas that apply to its plants and development centres, or to its Peugeot, Citroën and DS brands and their networks. The Group currently cooperates on sharing its professional expertise with 50 schools in France.

However, the most ambitious objective of this agreement is to make it easier for young people to enter the workforce and to create an on-ramp to the corporate and industrial world of PSA Peugeot Citroën and of the automotive industry in general.

At present, 650 young people are enrolled in a two-year program as part of this partnership. Nearly 3,500 young people have been recruited in the PSA Peugeot Citroën network over the past ten years.

Commenting on the agreement, Xavier Chéreau, Executive Vice President, Human Resources said: “For me, facilitating entry into the workforce is a key part of our Human Resources strategy. The Group’s operations are organised into 20 job families and 110 professions, offering a very wide range of opportunities. We’re sharing these opportunities with France’s national education system through our active involvement in numerous training initiatives for young people, who represent our industry’s future.”
