The Union of Metallurgical Industries and Trades (UIMM), the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts (Cnam) and Orange sign a strategic partnership agreement to meet the digital skills challenge, a key issue in the competitiveness of businesses. The three partners are pooling their expertise and resources to develop training and promote the detection of talent, particularly in the fields of cybersecurity, data, artificial intelligence and 5G.
Digital technologies have a lasting impact on employment, trades and ways of working within companies, as well as the relationship with customers and partners. This trend will increase as forecasts indicate that by 2030, 50% of economic activity will be in digital and 85% of the trades that will be performed do not yet exist (reports from Dell and the Institute for the Future).
In this context, Orange, UIMM and Cnam believe that only companies engaging their employees and partners in a digital transition approach will remain successful. Sharing the desire to contribute together to the training of all players in order to prepare them for the professions of tomorrow, they commit themselves through this convention to build or enrich a mapping of offers of quality certification training in four areas: cybersecurity then gradually data, artificial intelligence and 5G.
By enshrining their actions within the framework of the law "For the freedom to choose one's professional future" of 5 September 2018, the partners commit to deploying flexible and innovative training, integrating the possibilities offered in particular by digital learning, alternation and training in working situations. Thanks to the individualisation of the courses, these courses will be able to adapt to all audiences (partners' employees, alternating, people far from employment, creators of start-ups...) and will ensure a concrete response to digital inclusion.
For the Orange Group, these training offers will be carried out by Orange Campus, which has just been launched to unite internally and externally the skills development mechanisms in these key areas for the future. Cnam, for its part, will draw on the expertise it has developed over the past several years in its specialist cybersecurity hub in Brittany as well as competent teams of teacher-researchers in the four priority areas. The training will be carried out by Cnam Enterprises, a structure dedicated to Cnam's B2B offer, and by its network of centres consisting of more than 200 permanent locations.
The three-year convention is nationally and international in scope. In France, training facilities will be deployed in the heart of the territories. At the international level, French-speaking African countries will be able to benefit from digital training.
