Throughout an apprenticeship with INRAE, the apprentice will benefit from methodical and wide-ranging vocational training designed to obtain a vocational qualification in parallel with a diploma or degree. In this context, the apprentice’s supervisor provides support and can transmit his or her know-how and knowledge.

The duration of an apprenticeship contract is at least as long as that of the training course covered by the contract.

INRAE advertises its apprenticeship contracts in around mid-April each year, and the first candidates are recruited as early as May or June.
