Over 200 aprenticeship student candidates participated in the event. Supported by their training centers, they were welcomed troughout the day by aeronautics and space companies that are recruiting apprentices for the 2018 back-to-school season.

The apprenticeship study curriculum pursued by candidates covers the entire educational spectrum, starting from a CAP [1] diploma up to an engineer diploma and also including Professional and technician qualifications.

The exhibition was prepared in advance by a dedicated website, http://www.alternance-aerospace.fr/ where candidates could upload thier CV’s, and consult the different offers published online.

Candidates that were selected trough the website by companies were requested to attend the exhibition for planned interviews. In view of the overwhelming success of the event, the website will continue to receive applications from candidates for a further few months and sent to prospective companies for review.
