The Bachelor’s degree programme offers students the possibility of doing three years of studies under a block release arrangement so as to build an attractive professional profile:
This contract is signed between the student, the company and its OPCA* (*Accredited Joint Fund Collection Body). It is signed for 12 or 24 months in accordance with the training schedule and the student receives the status of employee and all the associated salary benefits. The schooling fees are paid by the company, supported by its OPCA.
This contract is signed between the student, the company and the school. It is signed for six months (renewable) and enables the student to retain a student status and all the associated welfare benefits. The student will receive work placement compensation and it is possible to negotiate a more attractive remuneration in accordance with the student’s profile. This formula allows students to achieve two different goals during the year, helping them to consolidate their choices of professional direction and enrich their CVs.
The temporary contracts and permanent contracts alternating with study are approved, provided that they allow for a pace of alternation in accordance with the training schedules. These contracts are the responsibility of the company’s human resources department. The minimum remuneration is equal to the hourly minimum wage.
From the time of approved enrolment at the school, students who want to do their course under a block release arrangement will be monitored and supported in their search for a company.
This meeting of minds has the aim of supporting students in their search for a company.

Several times a year, ISTEC students have the possibility of securing their block release contract directly on the school campus by means of “speed-dating” style job interviews with partner companies. After a presentation of the job offer by the recruiter, students have a 5-minute interview to convince employers to recruit them.
