The general competition for professions “Technician in the production of mechanical products” returns to the Lycée des Métiers Champollion – Medialot

It will take place within the establishment from May 28 to 31, 2024.

The general competition for high schools and trades aims to distinguish the best students or apprentices at the national level and to promote their work. It evaluates candidates on subjects consistent with official programs, but within the framework of tests that are more demanding and longer than those of the baccalaureate.

It is aimed at final classes of public and private vocational high schools under contract as well as apprentices in their final year of training in apprentice training centers.

The general trade competition (CGM) option “Mechanical product production technician” (previously called “Machining technician”) and in particular its final practical part reflects the highest level of skills possible for a professional baccalaureate student.

This national competition takes place in two parts:

– the first part, lasting 6 hours, consists of responding to technical issues around a written subject. It takes place in each academy. It took place on March 12.

– the second part, called the “national final”, takes place over several days and culminates in an achievement. As part of the CGM “Mechanical product production technician”, the candidate is required to produce and assemble several parts, the technical nature and added value of which are decisive. Candidates are evaluated on the result produced, but also on the demonstration of their skills throughout the test (machining, assembly, control).

This second part will take place, for the 2nd consecutive year, at the Lycée des Métiers Jean-François Champollion in Figeac from May 28 to 31, 2024.

“Each year, the ministry designates an establishment. This is the 2nd year that Figeac has been in the spotlight. This is a distinction of national scope which requires a significant organization led by Laurent Heiser, our Deputy Director for professional and technological training with the support of the Campus des Métiers et des Qualifications d’Excellence Industrie du futur and Mecanic Vallée. We also do not forget the teachers involved in the conduct of this event and all the partners and financial contributors who are at our side,” explains Arnaud Combet, principal of the Lycée des Métiers Jean-François Champollion and co-president of the Campus of Professions and Qualifications of Excellence Industry of the future.

“We are fortunate to have a strong and powerful industry in our region. This national competition constitutes a great showcase, particularly for the Figeac industry. In addition, this type of event strengthens the links between Mecanic Vallée and the Campus of Professions and Qualifications of Excellence Industry of the Future who already collaborate on a regular and close basis,” adds Hervé Danton, General Delegate of Mecanic Vallée.

> Six candidates from different academies were selected following the written test. They are all in Terminale Bac Pro “Technician in the production of mechanical products”.

> This event offers the opportunity to promote the profession of technician in the production of mechanical products and the associated professional baccalaureate. The Lycée des Métiers Jean-François Champollion as well as other high schools belonging to the Campus des Métiers et des Qualifications d’Excellence Industrie du futur provide this type of training. Industrial production is, in many areas, essential to our daily lives. It gives rise to innovations that make it possible to meet the strategic challenges posed by profound technological, climatic, health changes, etc. During the tests, middle school students from Lacapelle-Marival and Latronquière as well as continuing education trainees will come to meet the candidates. in order to discover this technical sector. This type of approach also aims to combat the prejudices that still too often characterize the industry and to promote this sector among girls by encouraging them in particular to find out about the opportunities that characterize it. At the end of the selections, a gala evening is organized to close this national event. It will allow all participants and partners, candidates, members of the jury, companies, professional branches, Campus of professions and qualifications, institutional partners to discuss the competition and the machining professions through a friendly moment.

> The general competition was established by the University of Paris to distinguish the best students. The first prizes, which were initially aimed at boys from Parisian high schools, were awarded in 1747 at the Sorbonne. The general competition opened to provincial students and girls in 1924. Originally limited to French, Latin, Greek, history, mathematics and physics, it opened in 1981 to technological disciplines and in 1995 to the specialties of the professional baccalaureate.
