Presentation of the member:

The CCCA-BTP is a French professional organization in charge of coordinating apprenticeship in the construction industry. The CCCA-BTP leads a network of 118 training centers offering alternance training in companies and in training centers (called CFA-BTP). The CCCA-BTP is in charge of implementing the professional policy specified by main employers and employees representative federations of the construction industry at a national level. The French government is also represented within the Board Committee. The CCCA-BTP offer vocational training shared with construction companies and train around 45.000 young apprentices per year in all the construction sector crafts.

The missions of the CCCA-BTP are specified by the professional agreements concluded by the professional players of the construction industry and strengthened by the law. All these missions are lead with regional authorities which have the responsibility of organizing and funding the apprenticeship.

The main missions of the CCCA-BTP are to:

  • Promote the construction industry professions and improve its image;
  • Inform young people, families and companies of the sector on apprenticeship, and on professional opportunities;
  • Improve the quality of vocational training in companies and within training centers through the welcoming and career advising of young people;
  • Improve social and professional integration of young people;
  • Finance the development and the running of vocational training centers.

These missions are financed by a social subscription decided by the professional players and paid by all companies of the sector.

Description of the Pledge:

The CCCA-BTP pledges to pursuit an active European policy that contributes to the improvement of vocational training in companies as well as in training centers in order to professionalize the construction sector specially by promoting a high level quality training. To do so and thanks to a solid and reliable European partnership (REFORME and other long lasting partners), the CCCA-BTP leads and/or takes part to different projects in the framework of the program Erasmus+ (Kay action 1 and Kay action 2).                          

Supply: CCCA-BTP pledges to train 150000 young apprentices in the period 2017-2020

Mobility: The CCCA-BTP runs two important mobility projects.

1.BTP Mobilité + 2016 aims to improve the attractiveness of the construction’s apprenticeship and trades through European mobility making it a sustainable component of lifelong learning.

The project allows around 500 French apprentices to work 2 or 3 weeks in European companies or VET centers in different European countries (Italy, Estonia, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Denmark etc.). In this project, the CCCA-BTP is firmly engaged in the Implementation of the ECVET approach since apprentices are concerned with the on-site assessment of learning outcomes and its validation in hosting company/VET Centre.

2. The CCCA-BTP presented in February 2017 another mobility projects for around 500 grants and supports also the Jean Arthuis initiative on long-term mobility for apprentices.

3. Moreover, the CCCA-BTP is leading the project ConstructyVET (http://constructyvet.eu/ - Erasmus+K2) dealing with the adjustment of contents and methods of the vocational training organized with companies (apprenticeship, dual systems or any other forms where companies are involved in the training process) and addressing future middle-management staff in the construction industry. In addition, the CCCA-BTP takes part to the project Construction Inheritance (Erasmus+K2) leaded by FLC (Spain) dealing with transfer of know-how from older workers to younger ones in the field of restoration of ancient building.

In this context, the CCCA-BTP pledges to enhance the European mobility of the construction sector apprentices in order to systematize mobility in all the training paths offered in the network. This will allow apprentices to acquire professional competencies abroad suitable to satisfy companies’ and labor market’s needs. Thus, mobility is considered as a main vector to improve not only the quality, but also the image of apprenticeship and the possible careers in the construction sector. We commit to continue and further develop our activities to fully implement our European policy while accomplishing our main missions listed above.
