An apprenticeship consists of alternating between in-company training and theoretical training in order to obtain a State-recognised qualification. Its duration must therefore be the same as the time required to study for the qualification.

The initiative is now a resounding success. It has several advantages:

  • For the firm, it means that a young person can be trained, initiated in working methods and company culture, their progress assessed, and perhaps later be recruited under a contract of employment
  • For the young person, it enables them to both have theoretical training by attending a training centre, and practical training in the company. In this way they acquire some professional experience - which is essential when they will later look for work - and at the same time study for a qualification, and be paid on the basis of a percentage of the minimum wage which varies according to their age and the duration of the apprenticeship

Many apprenticeships lead to employment, since the young person already knows the firm, its products or clients and has already proved his/her worth.


Apprenticeships and training/work-experience contracts are for young people from 16 to 26 years old, whatever their level of studies, wishing to continue their training (from CAP to DESS) whilst benefiting from professional experience.


The firm must pay the apprentice using the scale in force, which varies according to the apprentice's age and level of training (See Circular letter no. 2018-18 of 27 December 2018 pertaining to minimum pay for an apprentice(s) who is (are) under an apprenticeship contract(s), applicable as of 1 January 2019).

The firm must pay the apprentice's training fees.
