“The economic crisis linked to Covid-19 is affecting young people very hard,” said Fondation PSA general delegate, Karine Hillaireau.

“Backed by an exceptional donation from the top management of Groupe PSA, Fondation PSA has decided to support youth. As a supporting partner of National Federation of the Ecole de Production, we have chosen to develop [a] specific training programme in the repair of electric and hybrid vehicles. 

“This training will provide young people in Haute Savoie with an additional asset to enter the labour market.”

For her part, National Federation of Ecoles de Production president, Dominique Hiesse added: “After helping our students to obtain a driving licence and also purchasing vehicles to promote their collective mobility, Fondation PSA gives another dynamic impetus to its partnership with the Ecole de Production.

“For our network of schools, this new dimension given to the partnership with Fondation PSA is the answer to unmet recruitment needs in our regions.”

The project titled: ‘Train young people in the tomorrow’s car repair jobs,’ allows a new class of students to join the ECAUT Ecole de Production of Viuz-en-Sallaz.

With the financial support of Fondation PSA, the students in this class will benefit from specific training to obtain their electrical accreditation. In addition, Fondation PSA puts plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles at their disposal for training.

“ECAUT is the only school in the area that offers this training at professional baccalaureate level,” noted ECAUT production school director, Thierry Meynet.

“For several months, we had been preparing this project and the significant funding it represented remained a major obstacle. The contribution of Fondation PSA was decisive.”
