Who better than apprentices to defend their industry? Since November 18 and until Thursday, more than 500 apprentices from 70 training centers for apprentices (CFA) across France are performing on the stage of the Théâtre Marigny, on the Champs-Élysées, on the occasion of the 18th edition of the ApprentiScène operation. This event, sponsored this year by actress Julie Gayet, is part of an educational and artistic program that promotes learning, a training that is gradually regaining its letters of nobility, with more than 500,000 contracts signed. in 2020, unheard of.
In parallel with their training, these apprentices worked for nearly a year in groups of 5 to 7 students, with professional directors, and co-wrote three-minute sketches on their status, their future profession or a major cause related to the professional world.
Thus, in this 2021 ApprentiScène vintage, future boilermakers humorously defend a sector that is sometimes disparaged but essential in many activities.
Other apprentices talentedly mock the clichés of sales professions, or even fully claim their choice to evolve in chemistry or plastics, at a time when it is fashionable to assert its ecological fiber.
This educational program is also an opportunity for these young people to work on their speaking skills, to learn to carry their voice, to collaborate as a team, to show initiative and,
, to gain self-confidence. Their companies are also the first to observe the transformations brought about by this practice of behavioral theater. A method that makes it possible to fight effectively against breaches of contracts. “
About 70% of the causes of breakdown are linked to inappropriate behavior. So let's teach each apprentice to be proud of himself and to adopt an appropriate behavior to solve a large part of the problem
”, notes Olivier Mothes, co-founder of ApprentiScène and associate director of Alternators.
This Thursday evening, the winners of the five previous performances will once again take the stage for the grand finale of ApprentiScène which will decide between the ten groups still in the running.
