    We are a Vocational Training Centre for apprentices (in the town of Tulle - France) offering specialized courses in the fields of Hotel and Restaurant Management, Food Production, Hairdressing, Cabinet Making, Butchery, Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, Artisanal Bread Baking and Chocolate Making.

Known sometimes as "the town on the seven hills", Tulle rose to prominence through the development of its manufacturing sector.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    workawayers are in contact with apprentices, students (young and adult) teachers; it's a great opportunity to get to know social and cultural life in our area.
    we also have workawayers from different countries at the same time on our campus.

    The work is varied and interesting. Our main objective is to provide our apprentices with a broad range of cultural experiences through hosting international Workawayers as well as to give you a uniquely French experience through interactions with our apprentices and staff members.

    We will plan your weekly schedule with you according to your interests and our needs. We ask that you be flexible with your time and keep an open mind.

    The general works will include (but not limited to):

    ● Giving a presentation on your country and culture through educational activities.

    ● Contributing to the centre's blog and website.

    ● Assisting the teaching team(mostly the English teacher) in the classrooms during the day and the educational team (administrative and computer works) after school.

    You will have the opportunity to attend some of the apprenticeship classes that interest you.

    Please let us know if you have any additional skills you think might help us, for example: videography, website design, graphic design, photography...

    - parler de son pays et de sa culture a de jeunes apprentis dans le cadre d'activités éducatives

    - organiser des activités linguistiques avec la professeur d'anglais

    - tenir un blog et/ou alimenter le site web de l'école

    - Vous pourrez également participer à des travaux pratiques avec les apprentis.
