Parcours Avenir

First introduced in 2015, the “Parcours Avenir” (Avenir Curriculum) replaces the former “Parcours de découverte des métiers et des formations” (Discovery of jobs and training Curriculum) . It consists of a series of coherent and progressive activities which are conducted as part of the school main courses or Accompagnement Personnalisé courses (individual/group support and mentoring courses), or else during job shadowing periods. It caters for individual needs of all students, and disabled students in particular.

It aims to lead students from 6ème to Terminale (secondary school) to:

  • Understand economic and professional realities as well as the range of jobs and trainings available;

  • Develop students’ initiative and commitment;

  • Draw up one’s educational and career path

Please consult the following website for more information on the Avenir curriculum:
