Internships and Apprenticeships

stages-alternance.jpg

An integral part of our training courses, internships are an opportunity to experience the realities of the corporate world and to make progress in defining a professional project. By the end of the program, students will have spent a minimum of 9 months in a professional environment.

  • The school's support in finding internships and work-study programs

    Internship coordinators are on hand in each of the engineering programs to help students with their research, validate their internship projects and provide pedagogical support. In addition, a specialized corporate relations department supports the teaching teams.

    Resources from the Polytech network and Aix-Marseille University (AMU) are available online. Internship/work-study/job offers can be consulted on two portals:

    • Job Teaser Polytech is the Career Centre for the engineering schools in the Polytech network: internship / work-study offers are targeted at "engineers". They can also be targeted to a particular school.
    • Job Teaser Aix-Marseille Université is AMU's Career Centre: offers are targeted at its faculties, schools and institutes, and are more regionally oriented.

    These platforms also provide application advice, company presentations and alerts on recruitment events. They are independent, and students will need to create two separate accounts to access them.

    Polytech Marseille's corporate relations department is active on the Linkedin professional social network:

For several years now, Polytech Marseille has been developing two types of work-study programs in its engineering specialties:

  • Professionalization contracts in the final year of the engineering curriculum (Bac+5) in all specialties. 96 contracts have been signed for 2022-2023, a figure that is rising steadily (7 contracts in 2017). Contracts last 12 months.
    Our work-study schedule (weeks shared between the school and the company) makes it difficult to sign professionalization contracts with companies outside the PACA region.
  • Apprenticeships are offered in dedicated programs, currently three engineering specialties: Digital Systems, Mechanics and Energy (opening September 2023) and Computer Science (opening September 2023).
    Apprenticeship contracts are signed for three years and cover the entire duration of the engineering curriculum.
  • Advantages of work-study programs for companies

    • Train engineers more quickly in company methods
    • Recruit at source profiles that are in short supply on the job market
    • Benefit from training costs covered by your branch's OPCO (Opérateur de compétences).
    • Benefit from government subsidies for the hiring of work-study students who are not counted in the workforce.

    What steps does the company need to take?

    1. Contact your OPCA to find out how to apply.
    2. Take part in Job Dating at the Rencontres Polytech Entreprises in the spring.
    3. Communicate your job offers to the school, and take part in selection interviews with future apprentices.
    4. Select your work-study student
    5. Contact Polytech Marseille to have the content of the assignment validated by the pedagogical department.
    6. Sign the work-study or apprenticeship contract with the relevant CFA (CFA Epure or CFAI, depending on the specialization).

  • Advantages of work-study programs for engineering students

    • Enhance your diploma with significant professional experience
    • Finance your studies
    • Employee status (remuneration, social protection, pension contributions, paid leave and other benefits, etc.)

    Procedures for students studying at Polytech (5A work-study program)

    1. March/April: Attend the "Rencontres Polytech Entreprises", make contacts, discuss your project with professionals and refine your career plan.
    2. April: Contact the teacher responsible for the work-study program in your stream
    3. April to August: Offer your services and skills to companies on an unsolicited basis, apply for jobs advertised by the school, monitor companies' work-study campaigns (on Linkedin and on their websites), consult the list of companies that have already hosted Polytech work-study students on the school intranet.
    4. April to September: Have the assignment proposed by the company validated by the referent teacher, who will contact the CFA and register you on the CFA's Cactus platform.
    5. As soon as possible: Sign the one-year tripartite professionalization contract between the student, the company and the CFA.
    6. Please note that only students who have already completed their compulsory international work-study program are authorized to complete their final year of work-study.

    Steps for future apprentices?

    1. Between February and April: Apply for Polytech apprenticeship programs via the e-candidat platform or via the CFAI platform, depending on the specialization chosen.
    2. In March: Attend the Rencontres Polytech Entreprises to establish contacts with the school's partner companies and take part in preparatory workshops.
    3. From March onwards: Make unsolicited applications to companies, keep an eye on their work-study campaigns (on Linkedin and on their websites), apply for jobs advertised by Polytech.
    4. When the host company confirms recruitment: Have the Polytech manager validate the proposed assignment.
    5. As soon as possible: Sign the three-year tripartite apprenticeship contract between the apprentice, the company and the CFA.
    6. Final admission to a Polytech apprenticeship program is decided when the contract is signed.

    Polytech preparatory cycle students who have completed their two years of Peip benefit from a special application process.

  • Benefits of work-study programs for the school

    Through work-study programs, the school develops stronger links with companies and benefits from feedback from students. Work-study programs also promote social mobility and ensure optimum employability upon graduation.

  • Information, work-study schedule by engineering specialization and contacts on the CFA EPURE website.
