From the start of this new 2020 academic year, the Orange Apprentice Training Centre in France will support over 80 young people in initial training or retraining for the digital jobs of the future.
The Orange Apprentice Training Centre offers a tailored work-study programme leading to certification, designed with leading partners and group experts. Five training courses, lasting 12 to 24 months, will prepare the students for jobs in cybersecurity, cloud computing, customer services and data. In conjunction with Orange Campus, the Orange Apprentice Training Centre is designed to attract new talented people with varied profiles to key professions for the group.
Orange is a long-standing player in work-study programmes in France. The group hosts over 5,000 apprentices through partnerships with over 300 partner apprentice training centres. Orange has seized the opportunity provided by a recent French law concerning the freedom to choose one’s professional future to create its own Apprentice Training Centre.
Gervais Pellissier, Deputy CEO, Director of Human Resources and Transformation at Orange, said: “Taking on the skills challenge is a priority for Orange. We believe that work-study programmes, which combine high-quality education with work experience, represent an important path towards the successful integration of young people. We are delighted to welcome these new apprentices in our teams and to help them prepare for future-oriented jobs.”Click below to share this article
