On Thursday, Dominique Meriguet, provider of the Ihi-Tea No Vavau high school named this year, was surrounded by his entire team to welcome a delegation from the country and representatives of national education. Dominique Catoir, Inspector General of Education, Sports and Research, is also in charge of monitoring the teaching of the food trades. The commission was composed of the director of the office of the Minister of Education, representatives of the Campus of Trades and Qualifications (CMQ), the Group of Polynesian Institutions for Continuing Education (Grepfoc), the Employment Service, of training and vocational integration (Sefi), of the Directorate of Education and Teaching (DGEE), and of the town hall of Bora Bora.
Dès le matin, la délégation is the entrance to the institution to take over the direction of the documentation and information center, a place of discussion. At the end of the morning, Gaston Tong Sang, President of the French Polynesian Assembly and Mayor of Bora Bora, joined the guests.
Mention the ACA supplement
From the next school year, a complementary mention of the art of light cooking (ACA) will be born in Bora Bora. This one-year training is funded by Pays, with Grepfoc as the operator. Apprentices, aged 16 to 29, must first register on the Sefi website. They must have an apprenticeship contract and already have a degree in cooking, pastry or mouth-watering crafts, from CAP to Bac. Sometimes selected, then they will undergo 34 mixed weeks in the center and the enterprise: 2 days in the training center for the acquisition of savoir-être and savoir-faire and 3 days in the enterprise with a learning master where they have to complete 18 full weeks. (25% of the time in training centers and 75% in the company, for a total of 169 hours per month). The one-year apprenticeship contract can be considered a full-time contract. The apprentice is employed by the company and benefits from 2.5 days of paid leave per month. He receives a salary slip.
The exchanges were productive on this day as the balance sheet provided by the Bora Bora and Sefi employment unit seemed satisfactory: from the first week of recruitment, four candidates were selected for this 2022-2023 session. Hina Grepin, CMQ’s chief operating officer, said that future enrollment could be completed by the end of July.
