English translation:sensitizing of the new generation
Explanation:
I think that both are good "education of the new generation and sensitization of the relieving troops, sensitizing the newcomers,making the next generation aware of" but you given the context I think you should mix it and use the above

education of the new generation


Explanation:
I found this CESAM web page at http://www.cesam.qc.ca/FR/fs04/p0404.html
which uses the term as follows:
"Sensibilisation de la relève

En incitant les jeunes élèves du secondaire III, IV et V à orienter leur carrière dans les nouveaux médias, le CESAM contribue à assurer à l’industrie l’existence d’une main-d’œuvre qualifiée et en quantité suffisante pour répondre aux besoins de l’industrie."

Given this context, I believe what is meant is education of the new generation.

Explanation:
I think this is self explanatory, a firm wishes to implant itself in the market and looks for renovation. The newcomers can be the renovators (probably not the renovated products as you don't sensitize products) or they can be the targeted audience. Only context can assure you of this, but translation would probably still remain the same.
