Rabat – The Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Green and Digital Economy launched a new support system for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) under the name “Competency Cap – Industrial Acceleration” (CCAI).
The launch took place yesterday, October 30, in Casablanca.
CCAI aims to provide SMEs with a “personalized support to answer their needs in qualified employees.” The system also seeks to “ensure a complete path for candidates, from the selection, orientation, and training, until the integration within the company.”
During the presentation, minister of industry, Moulay Hafid El Alami, said that the project is part of the 2014-2020 industrial acceleration plan, aiming to make Morocco a regional leader in the automotive and aeronautics industries.
“The project will ensure a better integration for young people into working life, and a sustainable competitiveness for companies,” El Alami added.
The system will help SMEs “defining their needs in skills and elaborating job descriptions.” CCAI will then guide the companies throughout the process of “sourcing, testing, and training the qualified candidates, to finally integrate the new employees within the businesses.”
CCAI will start as a pilot operation in the region of Casablanca-Settat, in order to integrate 2,000 young candidates in SMEs. After the end of the test period, the ministry will implement the system throughout the country.
