From January to March 2022, sixteen learners were trained at the premises of WebForce3, route de Seysses, before sixteen months on a work-study program at CGI, a digital consulting company, in Toulouse, Rennes and Paris. They will come out with a professional title of Application Developer Designer.

Free training for job seekers

The course is financed by Pôle Emploi because the candidates are job seekers. “The philosophy of this program is retraining,” recalls Céline Corno, director of philanthropy and head of Microsoft France schools. In this promotion there are, for example, an order picker and a sales manager.
At the heart of the ecosystem, Microsoft collects business needs. Then the programs are established with trainers. Finally, the strength of Microsoft is to place work-study students with its partners, where they are paid. Toulouse had already hosted artificial intelligence training.

The positive exit rate of the first Ecole Business Apps promotion is 82%. The vast majority of holders of the professional title either issued by the training therefore find a job, create their own structure or pursue another training course to complete their course and their skills.
