2 days of events punctuated by different award ceremonies to reward innovative projects linked to ESP
The fourth edition of the “Les Eloi d’or” competition is launched since the winners of this competition are rewarded as part of the FCTM-ESOPE. The theme determined for this 2024 edition is “ENVIRONMENT AND OCEANS”.

Let us remember that this competition was a desire of the profession to want to involve young people in a professional event. The organization of the FCTM-ESOPE was fully consistent with the project. The competition takes place over the 2024 – 2025 school year; it is part of the transformation of the professional path and in particular in the creation of the “masterpiece”.

The design remains completely free but certain constraints are nevertheless imposed.
The targeted classes are those preparing for the Bac. Pro. Industrial Boilermaking Technician.
The competition is an opportunity to put in a professional situation around a multidisciplinary project.
The educational virtues of the exercise are numerous: compliance with specifications, teamwork, openness to other lessons, etc.

The competition also aims to highlight rigor, know-how and creativity.
