L'Industreet: an innovative and free campus for young people

students will be trained eventually each year for the industrial jobs of tomorrow

Eventually, the campus will provide tuition-free training for 400 young people each year in the industry professions of tomorrow.

Its innovative teaching approach mixes classroom and technical courses with immersive work experience, as well as the know-how needed to enter the world of work. Because the curriculum is individualized, students will be able to enroll throughout the year. At the end of the program, L’Industreet’s goal is for each young graduate to be in a position to find an industrial job, continue their studies or start their own business.

Despite COVID-19, more than 60 young people already started training with L’Industreet in November 2020.

objective: a job for each graduate 

200,000 industrial jobs are unfilled in France. This initiative from Total Foundation provides a practical response to the challenge of youth unemployment. Industry is undergoing profound changes with automation and digitalization, and it offers a wealth of opportunities for young people looking for a career path.

L’Industreet will give young people the opportunity to acquire nationally recognized professional skills certification after 12 to 18 months of free training. The program focuses on five areas with high demand for applicants: automated production lines, non-destructive testing and inspection, power distribution terminals, digitalization of industrial facilities and attended robot multi-service maintenance.

This campus is tangible proof of TotalEnergies’s commitment to youth employment and training. L’Industreet is targeted primarily at those who leave school without any qualifications and are looking for a career, attracting them to the industries that are hiring.
