About a hundred sectors are represented on various stands, run by school students. In Bordeaux, nearly 500 training courses are available.
One hundred schools
“Visitors are getting younger and younger. With the reform of the bac, first year students must already know what they want to do later, ”notes Caroline Panfilo, curator of the show. This event evolves from year to year, depending on the expectations of young people. “Recently, we have been offering training courses on new technologies, games, digital professions,” she continues.
Conferences are offered throughout the day on several themes, “how to anticipate your health studies from high school”, “artistic direction, animation and games: jobs that recruit”. Orientation workshops allow you to find an answer to almost existential questions : “What kind of engineering studies am I made for?” “. Admission is free with or without invitation, both for high school students and for young people in the reorientation phase.
