A renowned training model: work-study courses

Work-study courses are Veolia's preferred hiring method

With this positioning, Campus Veolia has been helping implement the Group's training policy for its employees and all stakeholders in the environment for over 20 years. Veolia is committed to attracting, training and retaining the best people at all skill levels and in all employment areas where it is present.

Today, Campus Veolia shares this high performance model with local authorities and contractors by incorporating work-study students from partner local authorities and contractors and training young job-seekers to take up real opportunities by providing them with access to state recognized qualifications.

Environmental service professions are undergoing rapid change and they must anticipate and accompany the major changes in society. By their very nature they require that those exercising these professions be capable of managing contingencies and the specific needs of customers. This is why Campus Veolia ensures that its work-study students and trainees receive the knowledge and skills needed to be independent, show initiative and deliver efficient services.
This universal yet highly modern skills acquisition method divides time between on-the-job training and theoretical classes and relies to a great extent on tutoring. It is not only trade professionals who provide academic training but also tutors specifically trained for this mission who accompany future graduates.

Alternating between theory and practice

Everything that is learnt is applied both in the training centre and in the company. No courses are purely theoretical: even outside your company, business knowledge is applied on the appropriate machines and tools, in workshops and laboratories. The technological halls take part in alternating between theory and practice. For example they are fitted out with drivers, simulators to learn how to drive a train, to manage water systems, to monitor energy circuits... 

The key role of the tutor

No real work-study training is possible without a tutor or learning master. The learning master or tutor is a staff member who is perfectly aware of all aspects of the trade. Thanks to his/her role as host and guide, they manage the trainee's time in the company and facilitate their integration.

Teaching given by professionals in the field

The professional teaching is given by professional who are experts in solving problems in the field. They have identified all the know-how required to pass the exams and become a good professional.
