Apprenticeship to increase employability

If obtaining a degree is important for any student, having a good employability is even more important, because it is this parameter that will be considered the most when entering the work world.

Do you want to have a recognized diploma, get a taste of the business world during your studies and secure your place in the professional world? This is what apprenticeship was designed for.

By choosing to do an apprenticeship, you are opting for a work-study program. In simple terms, it is a matter of taking theoretical courses and doing practical work in a company at the same time. The admission and execution of the work-study program depends greatly on the institution you join. So you might as well choose a good school.

At INSEEC, we offer you an apprenticeship contract as part of a work-study program with only 2 main conditions Are you under 30 years old? Above all, you are highly motivated? Feel free to visit our site to consult the admission procedures and find answers to your questions in our FAQ section or on the work-study page.

Wondering why motivation is an important requirement for entry into learning? This is because work-study training naturally requires more effort and is much more intensive than “normal” training. In fact, you will have to attend classes, as well as do work in the company, not to mention your individual work.

Learning requires a lot of hard work, patience and almost all your time. That said, we guarantee it’s worth it. While the contract lasts only 36 months at the most, it can give you access to a challenging job in a dynamic company at the end of your program.

Do an apprenticeship and benefit from the status of an employee

One of the biggest challenges students face when choosing an apprenticeship is finding a school in which to do the work-study practice. This problem is rare, or even non-existent at INSEEC, as you gain access to the the largest network of business alumni in France by joining the school.

If you enroll in a program at INSEEC, you have a good chance of starting your work-study program 3 months before the training course begins. According to the contract, it is the employer who is required to provide you with an apprentice’s salary and to pay, with its OPCO, the training costs. Of course, this usually happens if you have great potential.

The advantage of doing an apprenticeship is that you immediately benefit from the status of employee as soon as you join the company in which you do your practice. The percentage of the SMIC that you receive depends, however, on your age as well as the year of the contract and the company’s collective agreement.

The school also has a corporate relations department that organizes job dating, CV workshops, coaching sessions, afterwork, corporate partnerships and a job offer platform.

Do an apprenticeship and gradually integrate the world of work

Do you want to find your way into the working world faster, but also take the time to acquire the knowledge and skills you need to become a professional in your field? Apprenticeship is, once again, an appropriate option, and that is what we offer at INSEEC. In addition to providing you with a complete training program that combines theory and practice, it facilitates your access to a trade through the apprenticeship contract. This means, among other things, being able to enter the world of work, in parallel with your theoretical training. As for the end of the contract, it can be up to 2 months after the end of the training.
