The work-study programme is designed for young people who wish to put work experience at the centre of their apprenticeship. Thus, throughout the year they alternate between theoretical training and professional immersion in a company. Work-linked training is also aimed at those who would like to have the cost of their training covered and receive the bonus of a salary.
However, be aware that this is a demanding path. The theoretical training requires at least as much time devoted to personal work as time spent in class, and working in a company requires a lot of energy. The decision to take this route is therefore not to be taken lightly.
The theoretical base of the course deals with general managerial teaching and favours the operational approach. The curriculum develops students’ ability to master management tools and techniques.
Your career in a company will enable you to apply these tools and develop your business skills.
Your company defines your specialisation: the sector in which you work (such as catering, accommodation or leisure) and your assignments (events, reception, etc.) which set the tone for your course. The choice of company is therefore strategic and must be made carefully.
At the end of the year, you must hand in your final dissertation and defend it in a final oral exam.
You research and apply to the host company yourself but École de Savignac supports and guides you during this process. Your employment contract (professional training contract or apprenticeship contract) is determined in consultation with your host company.
