General information

Diplom+ is a short, flexible course for young people who have obtained the diploma for the successful completion of secondary education (classical or general), a technician's diploma or equivalent and are not yet enrolled for higher education and are not in employment.

Once they have completed their secondary education or the technician's training, young people have to make a number of important choices: they have to decide whether to go on to higher education or start looking for a job.

The Diplom+ course delivers additional skills (in IT, project management, communication techniques, time management, team spirit and taking initiative) and increases the chances of finding a job or successfully completing higher studies.


The course is spread over two semesters with an average weekly duration of 25 hours.

In general, the course is delivered in Luxembourgish, French and English.

  • It comprises 8 shared modules and 4 to 8 optional modules:

  • In addition to the modules, a team project to reinforce the skills acquired is carried out. The team project is supervised by professional mentors.

Participants may leave the course at any time if they get a job, start a course in higher education, or change direction.

A certificate is awarded for each module completed before leaving the course (certificate of successful completion if at least 80% of the module has been attended and the oral or written assessment is positive), and this module can thus be valued subsequently.
