Moreover, the student-apprentice earns a salary and benefits significantly from the different statuses under which he operates :

  • As a student : CLOUS, university restaurant, library, Culture Card, etc.
  • As a salaried employee : contract with an enterprise (financial autonomy), rapid entry into the world of work
  • Two lines of learning and teaching : with university and workplace tutors
  • A long, first professional experience with exposure to a considerable number of different tasks and missions which represents a significant advantage when it comes to the CV / résumé.
