Helping young people to build a career plan

Guidance and professional initiation classes (Cours d’orientation et d’initiation professionnelles - COIP) enable young people to build a realistic career plan through meetings with managers who present their professions.

  • who do not meet the conditions to access the vocational regime of general secondary education (Enseignement secondaire général - ESG),
