Benefits and regulations of work-study

Employing through work-study allows to train young talents to foster their growth, witness their evolution in the company, and invest in their potential.
All of our work-study programmes are eligible for apprenticeship contracts and/or professional training contracts. Both contracts combine theoretical training within the School and practical training within a business.


What are the benefits of work-study?

For the business:

  • Train a collaborator to your business practices and methods.
  • Strengthen your teams with a driven young talent.
  • Benefit from the academic knowledge of the student-worker.
  • Obtain financial advantages (State and/or regional financial aid, upon conditions).
  • Assess the student-worker skills before offering him/her a work position at the end of the contract.
  • Get involved in the School's life (tutor meetings, recruitment forums, virtual forums...)

For the student-worker:

  • Utilise and strengthen academic knowledge in the field.
  • Gain recognised work experience.
  • Benefit from covered costs for the training programme and a salary.
  • Easier recruitment at the end of the work-study period.
