The Community of Saint Martin has signed a partnership agreement, the 27 February 2015, on the validation of prior learning (VAE) with the Groupement d'Intérêt Public (GIP) of the academic insertion system and the GRETA of Saint-Martin.
This agreement acts the opening on the territory of a DAVA Antenna, which is the Academic Device of Validation of Acquisitions. DAVA offers the Saint-Martinois in all sectors of activity the opportunity to validate their professional experience and obtain a diploma, a certification or a patent in their field of competence. The DAVA antenna is installed on the premises of the CCISM, within the training area. The creation of this antenna is a considerable asset for Saint-Martin, as it facilitates access to the VAE. It is now enough to register on the digital platform www.francevae.fr (Click on the Saint-Martin territory and follow the instructions). The candidate will then have to attend an information meeting within the DAVA Antenna to start the VAE process. To be eligible for a VAE, the candidate must have at least three years of professional experience in the field of the diploma. Funding for VAE may be provided by the usual training assistance organizations, the Pôle Emploi, the OPCA, or the employee's personal training account.
President Aline Hanson welcomed the creation of the DACA Antenna in Saint-Martin, which will greatly facilitate access to VAE in our territory. It also invited those with some professional experience to take advantage of this new system, which will allow these people to value their achievements and the territory to raise graduates.
