Capturing the Group’s professions
A few months ago, students from Paul Eluard high school (south of Paris) shot an over-the-shoulder documentary at Sagem's plant in Massy* to capture its production-related jobs on film.
The "My camera with the pros" initiative is backed by the French Ministry for Education and provides 14- to 15-year-old students from disadvantaged districts with an opportunity to produce a documentary about forward-looking professions in their area. Beyond the entertaining aspect – i.e. capturing and producing their own audiovisual content – the program encourages youths to explore real-life work situations and find out more about jobs and their environments.
Safran has been working on this program since 2013 (it is a founding member). It sees it as an opportunity to attract young audiences towards production-related professions and hopes to persuade them to join the Group.
*Three other Group plants took part in this project in 2014/2015: Messier-Bugatti-Dowty Bidos in the Bordeaux area, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty Molsheim in the Strasbourg area and Microturbo in the Toulouse area.
