The apprenticeship contract is a work-study contract, where the young “apprentice” divides his working time between his training at school and the company he employs. The apprentice thus receives a professional qualification with a vocational diploma. The apprenticeship contract can only be put in place once the partnership agreement has been signed between the company and the school.
- Duration of the contract: The duration of the contract varies between 1 and 3 years, depending on the trade and the diploma prepared, but it can be shorter (between 6 months and one year) or longer (up to 4 years) in certain cases.
- Length of working week: the length of the working week depends on the age of the apprentice and is applied on a case-by-case basis, according to the established collective agreements.
- Target group: students aged 16 to 25. It is also possible to sign an apprenticeship contract after the age of 25, under specific conditions.
- Companies concerned: both public and private employers. Associations and liberal professions can also conclude an apprenticeship contract. The only limitation is that the employer cannot be a private individual.
The apprentice is paid a percentage of the minimum wage (SMIC). This percentage varies according to the age and experience of the apprentice, from 25% to 78% of the minimum wage.
However, their pay may be higher than the minimum wage if the company applies agreements (collective or branch agreements, company agreements, etc.) offering a minimum wage higher than the minimum wage.

Financing of the training
- Private companies: in order to ensure the financing of training, the law stipulates that when it employs an apprentice, the company is liable for the apprenticeship tax, which is collected through a specialised body. The amount is calculated on the basis of the remuneration paid.
- Public institutions: the costs of training apprentices in the public sector are covered by the continuing education budget.
