Engineering Apprenticeships are, without doubt, an ideal project for companies which want to train their future team members, and anticipate their needs for skills and competences (succession planning, creation of new positions, for example). It is also a unique opportunity to benefit, at a very low cost as the scheme is partly funded by the French state and the Regional Councils, from a high-skilled young engineer whose knowledge is constantly updated by the partner academic institution and transferred to the company, as from the start of the contract, the trainee already has the same skills as a technician and can assume the responsibility for projects.
