A year after the launch of a first promotion in Toulouse, the computer giant Microsoft has just inaugurated, at the beginning of December, his last, and tenth, “Business Apps” school in the Pink Citycreated in partnership with the company specializing in digital services and advice CGI.

The objective of the training is to offer job seekers the possibility of switch to app development aimed at businesses. In other words, learn to create platforms to help them manage their inventory or list their expense reports, for example. “500 million applications will be created by 2025 to meet business needs in organizations. Yet the whole world faces a shortage of IT developers : there is therefore an urgent need to train new talent,” said Marie-Noëlle Muller-Pernodet, director of the VSE, SME and ETI division of Microsoft France.

Work-study training to learn how to develop applications

Concretely, 16 learners took courses in Toulouse for three monthsfrom January to March 2022, before leaving for work-study training for a period of 16 months within the teams of theGCI partner company in three cities, namely Toulouse, Rennes and Paris. “By favoring an early arrival in business, we respond to a double challenge for digital service companies (ESN) such as CGI: meet their needs quickly in digital skills while being part of their CSR dynamic”, explains Alain Assouline, president of WebForce3, a network of schools for digital professions, partner of Business Apps (route de Seysses).

At the end of their course, these students will obtain a title of “application developer designer” level six with the National Directory of Professional Certifications (RNCP), i.e. theequivalent of a license (Tray 3). Then, a new promotion will be recruited. And so on.
