The Lycée Airbus to hold Open Day for young students to discover professions in the aeronautical sector on February 28th

Registration for the 2015 academic year starts on February 16th

Toulouse, 17-2-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — The Lycée Airbus is currently one of the few company secondary schools that still exist in France. Each year it trains nearly 350 young students for four professions in the aeronautical sector, leading to four Vocational Baccalaureates. The courses are taught in a school context for the first two years, and then as an apprenticeship for the last year.

The following Vocational Baccalaureate courses are proposed: Industrial Metalworking Technician;Machining Technician; Aeronautics – Avionics option and Aeronautics – Structure option.

These courses address boys and girls who have Fourth Year level at least (aged 15 to under-18 on August 25th, 2015), and are highly motivated for working in a team, and on aircraft. On completion of their Vocational Baccalaureate the best students – and depending on their school record (academic and conduct) – may prolong their training with a 2-year Aeronautical BTS course (Advanced Vocational Diploma). This course is run by the Midi-Pyrénées CFAI as an apprenticeship.

The Lycée Airbus is organising an Open Day on Saturday February 28th from 8h00 to 12h30 to enable young students to discover the proposed professions, the school programme and the values it promotes. The presentation of the Lycée will be followed by a visit of the facilities.

Lycée Airbus: Airbus Saint-Eloi plant, 57 chemin du Sang de Serp – 31200 Toulouse (Metro line B, Canal du Midi station).

In order to submit your application for the 2015 academic year, registration will be open from February 16th to April 19th

Founded more than sixty-five years ago, the Lycée Airbus is situated in the heart of the Airbus Saint-Eloi plant in Toulouse.

The classrooms and workshops are located inside the plant, and the students benefit from the same working conditions as their future colleagues: corporate culture and functioning, company restaurant, etc. The Lycée Airbus is associated with Airbus Operations SAS, and has contractual ties with the French Ministry of Education. Teaching is free of charge and the students are entitled to state grants in accordance with the applicable regulations. More than one hundred students graduate from Lycée Airbus each year.
