During the 3rd year of their engineering program, Chimie ParisTech - PSL offers its students the opportunity to follow an apprenticeship in the form of professionalization contracts.
Students who want to follow an apprenticeship during the final year of their engineering cycle are recruited by a company for a period of one year starting in September (at the start of the school year). If they did an apprenticeship in their second year, they can go back to that same company. Students are paid and sign a professionalization contract with the company using form CERFA 12434*02.
Students then submit their work contract to Chimie ParisTech - PSL and the school establishes and sends to the host company an agreement to be signed by the school and the company. This contract lists the detailed program of the courses taken as well as the apprenticeship calendar for the school year.
The company and Chimie ParisTech - PSL then sign a training contract that specifies the courses followed by the student with the number of hours of classes per semester, the billing conditions and the possible support of an accredited collection organism. An appendix specifies the students’ weekly schedule and how they will split their time between the company and the school. The training costs are at the expense of the company and amount to 6,900 euros.
