Gateway to employment

The Legrand Foundation's partners:

FACE, Academy of Limoges, companies and craftsmen from the electrical sector, professional associations from the electrical sector

The Legrand Foundation has noticed that young people and companies sometimes have trouble finding each other. Many young people are unable to find a company able to offer them a work experience placement or an internship, and end up not being able to follow their planned training programme. At the same time, some companies do not manage to find young trainees.

This is why the Foundation aims to put these would-be trainees in search of internships and work experience placements in touch with potential employers in the electrical sector, that is to say, Legrand's customers and specifiers.

It also intends to get involved in shaping the curriculum, in order to provide young people with professional qualifications to supplement their training, which would give them easier access to the job market (for example, sales training).

Creating a link and building bridges are essential for developing mutual understanding between educators, companies and students
