Apprenticeship: The shortest way to finding your 1st job


Apprenticeship lets you gain long-term work experience while enjoying employee privilege:  The best way to secure your first job.

Get Long-term work experience

Combining school teaching and practical in-company training, apprenticeship provides you with a real added value for your professional integration. Depending on your year of study and choice of campus, sandwich courses allow you to spend between 2 and 3 days a week working in a company: an opportunity to gain long-term work experience at your own pace.

  • Put into practice and master the courses followed at IPAG
  • Increase your skills while being solidly trained in the field by professionals
  • Develop a strong corporate culture
  • Benefit from a long-term work experience, highly prized by recruiters: many companies train apprentices with the aim of offering them a position.

Finance your studies with sandwich courses

In addition to being a valued asset for your career as a manager, apprenticeship also represents a practical solution to finance your studies. Your employer covers your tuition fees. You additionally enjoy employee privileges, and, as such, receive a wage fixed in accordance with the terms of your contract:

  • Apprenticeship contract: 53 % or 61 % of the minimum salary (not subject to taxes)
  • Professionalisation contract: 80 % of the minimum salary (subject to taxes)
