“ALTERNANCE”* FUNDING

By using a “contrat de professionnalisation”:

  • Your studies will be fully or majoritarily funded by the “Organisme Paritaire Collecteur Agréé” (also known as an “OPCA”) to which your company of employment pays its dues.

  • The student becomes the employee (with a “CDD” or “CDI” type contract) of the company with whom he or she has signed their “contrat de professionnalisation”. The students pay is calculated on the basis of the French minimum wage (called the “SMIC”) which varies according to his or her age, level of studies, “les accords de branches”. Their salary will be situated between 55% and 80% of the SMIC.

 

Because New3dge is aware of the financial constraints many students may face, we have put in place an alternating class schedule, which applies to all students regardless of their type of funding. Therefore class schedules alternate between periods of 2 weeks in school, 2 weeks off school all year-round, allowing students to more easily find work to meet their financial needs.
