In fact, even schools or training centres that have strong partnerships and many with the companies do not call ever a contract in between "keys in hand". At best, they have to submit the CV to the recruiters and tell students who to call in such a business partner, but it is still the candidate to "consolidate" at the time of the interview.

To identify schools that have strong partnerships with businesses, the approach successful is to target companies that are of interest to the candidate and contact them to find out if they have partnerships with individual schools.

What time between school and business?
To choose, it is necessary to have in mind the specifics of training in apprenticeship or in contract of professionalization. The idea is to take advantage of the forums of the alternation, or open doors to questioning the representatives of the school on teaching methods and on the conditions of the validation of competences in the company. He must not forget to ask what is the use of the time type, in order to anticipate on the organisation of working time between the company and the school.
