When managers give a 5th-year ISIT student an apprenticeship training, they know they will integrate a young independent professional who is finishing its course of study and therefore well positioned to carry out useful projects within the company.
It also means actively taking part in the professional integration of these recent graduates, helping the school through an apprenticeship tax and the collaboration with tutors in order to develop courses of study that meet the needs of companies. Lastly, it allows young underprivileged students to receive a salary and a free scholar year, as the company pays for it.
A maximum of 20 students from the Intercultural Communication and Translation programme (CIT) and 20 students from the Intercultural Management programme (MI) (Baccalauréat diploma + a 5-year degree recognised by the French government) can participate in apprenticeship programmes. The CIT programme prepares students for careers in Multilingual and Multimedia Communication as well as the most recent developments in the translation field. The MI programme prepares students for careers in Intercultural Management related to the business world.
The student alternates between one week of studies and a consecutive in-company week over a period of 12-15 months.
Hiring an apprentice requires a partnership agreement between the company and ISIT. The apprentice receives at least 61% of the French minimum wage (for a 2nd year Master’s degree student, older than 21 years old).
Since January 2009, companies who employ an apprentice are required to pay a certain sum to the CFA (training fund body covering training costs), that corresponds to the real annual cost of the student’s training. In 2011-2012, it amounted to €9,600.
