The Commission has about 100 state employees divided between the CPMT Secretariat and the Direction générale du développement de la main-d’œuvre (DGDMO). The latter is made up of three directorates: the Direction du soutien au développement de la main-d’œuvre, the Direction du développement des compétences et de l’intervention sectorielle and the Direction de la qualification réglementée.
The CPMT Secretariat plays an advisory role to the Commission, to the Executive Committee and to the chairman. It also coordinates the work of the Commission’s working groups, provides the needed expertise and fosters consultation and dialog among partners of the labour market network.
The ten or so members of the CPMT Secretariat also handle public affairs for the Commission and its chairman, schedule and arrange meetings, and oversee the nomination by the Minister of Employment and Social Solidarity of members of the regional councils.
Under the authority of the chairman of the Commission des partenaires du marché du travail (Commission), the Direction générale du développement de la main-d’oeuvre (DGDMO) advises and supports CPMT authorities with respect to directions, measures and actions relating to workforce development.
To that end, it coordinates all of the levers at the Commission’s disposal, namely, the Act to promote workforce skills development and recognition and attendant regulations, the Workforce skills development and recognition fund, sectoral intervention, on-the-job skills development and regulated trades qualification.
It also develops and proposes organizational directions to foster consensus building with labour market partners in the public and private sectors as well as with the government departments and bodies concerned. In addition, the DGDMO develops strategies for workforce skills development and recognition in the workplace and supports the development and recognition of workforce skills in the workplace in keeping with the Workforce skills development and recognition framework, which aids in developing training courses and activities adapted to the workplace.
The DGDMO sees to implementation and monitoring of the sectoral approach to labour and employment by way of strategies aimed at developing, through various sectors, a culture of continuing education in businesses, particularly SMEs.
Lastly, the DGDMO implements and monitors the Workforce skills development and recognition fund.
The Direction générale du développement de la main-d’œuvre is composed of the Direction du développement des compétences et de l’intervention sectorielle, the Direction de la qualification réglementée and the Direction du soutien au développement de la main- d’œuvre.
