The Auditorium Rainier III played host to the 7th edition of the Training Choices Forum and the 12th Meeting of the Professions of Banking and Finance on Wednesday, February 21. This day, organised by the Employment Service and the Youth Employment Unit, under the aegis of the Department of Social Affairs and Health, was aimed at students aged 16 to 26 at all levels, allowing them to meet specialists, acquaint themselves with work-study programmes and meet companies in the Principality that are partners in the scheme.
With the presence of more than 630 visitors throughout the day, Sophie Vincent, Deputy Director of Labour, was very positive about the results: “The target for attendance at the Forum was 500 young visitors, we are well beyond this figure.
“A total of 87 brands were represented: 45 Monegasque companies, 15 banks and management companies and 25 schools in the region, plus the Information Centre of National Education.”
As has been customary for the last five years, the day ended with the presentation of the Fifth Apprenticeship Trophies awarded by the Minister for Social Affairs and Health, Didier Gamerdinger, to three exemplary apprentices, both at school and professional level, and at their host company: Best Apprentice Award, a tie between Coralie Sategna and Pastor Immobilier, Alizée Sassi and the Monaco Yacht Club. The Jury Prize went to Daniela Guerra-Flores and the company Mobee.
The Training Choices Forum, together with the presentation of the apprenticeship trophies, has become the highlight of a continuous initiative throughout the year by the Employment Service.
