What is a CFA?
A CFA, or Centre de Formation des Apprentis, is a training establishment that offers work-study programs that allow students to obtain a diploma while acquiring professional experience. The CFAs welcome young people from the age of 16, students and adults undergoing professional retraining.
The objective of a CFA
The objective of the CFA is to allow students to become professional and familiar with the world of work while obtaining a diploma. The apprentices are in the company part of the week and in class the other part. This teaching method allows for immersion in the professional world while acquiring theoretical knowledge.
Our partner companies
Our CFA relies on a network of more than 3,000 companies (link to partner companies pages) that welcome our apprentices every year, train them, accompany them and help them grow to better understand the world of work
