The Bagnolais training organization Peps has been collaborating for several years with Brazilian experts. This month of July, a delegation from Brazil is present in Bagnols to refine an action which has proven itself on the other side of the Atlantic and which should be implemented at the end of the ;year on the territory.

Intense exchanges have taken place for several years. A Brazilian delegation landed in Bagnols this week to continue the co-construction of a major project around training and innovation. "We are enormously fortunate to be able to benefit from their expertise" summarizes Vincent Martin, president of Peps, a training organization based in Bagnols-sur-Cèze.
A teacher-researcher, Giordano Cabral travels between the United States (Stanford University) and Brazil, where he teaches at the University of Pernambuco and chairs the Institute of Innovation in Recife. Marcia Vanderlei has twenty years of experience in project management related to culture and new technologies. Isabelle Ribeiro coordinates digital transformation projects for organizations, is a film director and project manager for audiovisual events. She benefited from the system that is currently being adapted for France. “It opened doors for me,” she confides. She will mentor groups of trainees in France and Brazil. As for Emili De Oliveira, she lives in France. She is a specialist in education projects and internationalization strategy and academic and scientific cooperation between the two countries.
The professional integration system in question has proven itself in Brazil and is being implemented in France.

"There is a recruitment problem"

The director of Peps, Sandra Rolland, explains: "We are working on the professional integration of young people, particularly those who are far from education ;rsquo;employment. We carried devices that allowed us to assess the situation of all the people who could be affected by this device, in particular talents from the city's political districts. Many young people without employment or training are not devoid of talent! And when we meet the region's business clusters, the managers confirm that there is a recruitment problem."

The program has become a reference in Brazil

This project is called "Lab Regenera". It concerns the sectors targeted by the France 2030 plan (industry, energy transition, care and support, new IT professions and creative industries with immersive technologies) and responds to UN recommendations.< br /> The idea: to bridge the gap between motivated young people and businesses. "It’is a real integration system which takes into account trainees, companies, the territory and partners. This is not specific training but support towards employment which includes digital technologies, all with three associated universities." "It’s a need for businesses, insists Giordano Cabral. For them, hiring is both a need and a risk. When we provide training that supports trainees and companies at the same time, companies are sure to hire someone reliable. We have had very good results in Brazil, for fifteen years", the program is even a reference. Peps is setting up this system in the Gard Rhone region.

The Bagnolais organization also brought its expertise to Brazil

In 2022, Sandra Rolland participated in a Franco-Brazilian action in Recife."We trained 28 young people in project management via audiovisual. 90% obtained an internship or job. In Brazil, Peps helped us adapt the support, because Peps has the ability to put the trainees at the heart of the training", report the Brazilians.
In Bagnols, in 2023, meetings took place with communities, businesses, local missions… "We have the support of around fifteen public and private institutions, to create a consortium which aims to represent the actors we wish involve (universities, training organizations), with a view to starting an experimental edition in Bagnols at the end of the year , explains Sandra Rolland. Thus, this summer, the Bagnolais and the Brazilians are working to structure the project and refine the needs of the companies. Throughout the system, there are interactions between young people and employees. At the end, there is a prototype, a presentation, and a job dating."
The team sets a course for 2027: supporting 6,000 interns in the two countries.
