What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are courses that offer the opportunity to study while working. This means that you alternate periods in a company (public or private) and classroom courses. Apprenticeship training is therefore an opportunity to obtain a diploma while gaining real experience in the world of work. You keep the status of student, but you are also under an apprenticeship contract, on a fixed-term or permanent contract within a company.
This type of training is aimed at young people under 30 years of age. Depending on the institution, the course may lead to a state diploma or a professional qualification recognized by the Ministry of Employment and Labor.

How to choose an apprenticeship?

As with any higher education course, there are a number of criteria to consider when choosing your apprenticeship. The diversity of the courses offered is one of the main criteria to consider, the objective being to find a course that corresponds to your needs.

Schools such as INSEEC allow you to choose from many specializations. If you are still looking for your field of study, take advantage of the orientation fairs or an information meeting to make your choice. This type of event is an opportunity to talk with an education professional who can help you find your direction.
In addition to the specializations available (luxury, sports, finance, real estate, digital etc.), also consider the quality of the training. To get an idea, look at the success rate of students who graduate and their level of integration into the professional world. Take advantage of the open house to discover the infrastructure, the teams and the equipment used for teaching. This can also be a good opportunity to talk with alumni.

How does the apprenticeship training work?

As mentioned above, the apprenticeship training takes place successively at the school and at the company. The length of the contract between you and the company varies between 12 and 36 months, knowing that the contract can start a little before and end a little after the training.
As an employee, you receive a salary based on three indicators: your age, the length of the contract and the company’s collective agreement. For example, a master’s student earns around the minimum wage. However, the calculation methods are available on the government’s website dedicated to work-study programs. It should be noted that the link between the student and the company is made through a mediator within the school.
