FAQ

  • Yes, send us an email and we'll discuss how best to adapt our training to your specific needs.

  • There are two possible tracks to take within this program: 

    • Apprenticeship: If the candidate already has a solid foundation in systems and networks and wishes to enhance their skills in a professional environment, they will join the apprenticeship training program, which includes 420 hours of training. Class takes place for 1 week every 3 weeks over 1 year. 

    • Individual Operational Preparation for Employment program (POEI) + apprenticeship: If the candidate wishes to improve their skills quickly to then be completely operational in a business environment, they will take part in our 400-hour intensive bootcamp for approximately 3 months, followed by a one-year apprenticeship program.

  • The Individual Operational Preparation for Employment (POEI) is a French vocational training program designed to prepare job seekers for a specific position within a company. During the training period, the job seeker continues to receive unemployment benefits or other financial assistance while undergoing training.

     

    This program aims to boost a job seeker’s marketable skills while reducing the financial burden that typically comes with returning to education, helping them integrate smoothly into the job market long-term.

     

    To provide these opportunities for students, Konexio actively seeks interested companies to partner with.

  • The Individual Operational Preparation for Employment (POEI) offers candidates the opportunity to boost their skills while maintaining their “job seeker” status, ensuring they keep the benefits that come with this title.

    • Konexio pre-selection: Konexio sends candidates' profiles to companies after analyzing their skills and previous experience.

    • Company selection: Once shortlisted, candidates are screened by our company partners offering apprenticeship opportunities to ensure they meet any additional required criteria.

    • Hiring: Once candidates have completed the training, they will potentially be hired by the company, if their performance is satisfactory. Candidates may be hired directly, or on a temporary contract or apprenticeship basis, depending on the terms and conditions.

  • Apprenticeship programs offer students a unique opportunity to combine theory and practice, providing a real springboard for future professional careers.

    • Gaining real-life work experience: Apprenticeship students have the opportunity to work in a company while pursuing their studies, giving them hands-on experience in their field of study.

    • Putting knowledge into practice: Thanks to apprenticeship programs, students can apply the theoretical knowledge acquired in the classroom directly in the field, reinforcing their understanding and know-how.

    • Skills development: Working in a company enables apprentices to develop professional skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving, that are in demand by employers.

    • Easier integration into the job market: Periods spent on the job give apprenticeship students the opportunity to build up a professional network and develop contacts that can facilitate their integration into the job market once they have completed their studies. Four out of five apprentices find a job after completing their contract.

    • Remuneration: Apprenticeship students generally receive remuneration during their apprenticeship periods, which can help finance their studies and reduce their financial dependence on their families.

    • Skills validation: Students obtain a diploma as well as recognized professional experience, making them more attractive to employers.

  • The typical apprenticeship schedule is one week of training and three weeks of working.

  • No, this is not necessary. We seek partnerships with companies interested in taking on trainees, and we launch training cohorts according to their needs. This way, we know what profiles our partners are looking for, and we propose shortlisted candidates that match this demand.

Testimonials from our learners

Konexio is a story of human connection, social impact, and solidarity

For Saleem, a former airport receptionist from Pakistan, IT represents the future. After facing partial unemployment during the Covid-19 crisis, he decided to turn to this sector. Starting out with no systems and networks skills, he determinedly embarked on the Senior Systems and Networks Technician training program at Konexio. After a difficult start, Saleem distinguished himself and landed an internship with Capgemini in Toulouse, followed by a job offer with Akkodis. Since October 2022, he has held a permanent position as a network systems technician, and is now looking forward to taking the CCNA and CCNP certifications to become a systems and network administrator.

Following a work accident, Pierre, construction site carpenter, changed his career path. After graduating as an IT Assistant Technician, he decided to complete his training by joining Konexio's Senior Systems and Networks Technician training program. At 55, Pierre is perfecting his technical skills and strengthening his soft skills. Despite the comparisons often made with younger candidates, Pierre rose to the challenge of the work-study program with flying colors: he joined the Monoprix group in August 2023 and hopes to continue with the company after his training.

After completing her STI2D baccalaureate with a major in Information Systems, Fairouz was attracted to the IT sector, but the sexism of one of her teachers initially dissuaded her from pursuing this passion. Despite this attempt to discourage her, she finally decided to turn towards the profession of Senior System and Network Technician and joined the Konexio program. Since January 2024, she has been doing her work-study at Sun City Group, and feels that the team trusts her to carry out her assignments. Her advice to women who want to go into tech: "You have to go for it and give it your all!" In her opinion, to get things moving, we need more women in training and more responsibility given to women in the corporate world.

Julia Gensburger, CSR Manager at Mobsuccess Group

Testimonials from our Partners 

"First, we were lucky enough to be able to support Konexio financially at Christmas, thanks to a DIFT campaign that was much appreciated by our clients. Indeed, as a player in the sector, we are keen to promote apprenticeships in digital professions. We have given concrete expression to our commitment by employing a Konexio student to complete a work-study program with the Mobsuccess Group. We're delighted that Athman has joined our team and that Konexio has provided such excellent support. We hope to be able to continue our involvement with Konexio in a variety of ways, sharing our professional experience and learning from the students' experiences, thus contributing to the commitment of our staff and management, in line with the values of mutual aid and transmission that are dear to Mobsuccess."

Testimonials from our Partners 

"As part of the partnership signed between the Free Foundation and Konexio, we are offering several Group entities the opportunity to host learners. By working together, our two organizations are helping to reduce the digital divide and promote social and professional integration. It's a rich human experience that our Scaleway entity has been able to put into practice by recruiting students.

Lucile Poirier, General Delegate of the Free Foundation

Nicolas Sap, IT Manager at Patchwork

Testimonials from our Partners 

"What stood out for me was his motivation, which exuded from his whole being. Konexio had concocted a months-long bootcamp to arm him with theory, and he was burning to put them to the test in practice. He put so much effort into it that he ended up overtaking me. Without him, I clearly wouldn't have been able to implement the roadmap I had in mind so quickly."
