Airbus opens examination centre for students in Reunion Island

Posted 14 February 2014 · Add Comment

Registration for the 2014 academic year starts on February 15, 2014 opening of an examination centre for students in Reunion Island.

The Lycée Airbus is one of the few company secondary schools that still exist in France. Each year it trains nearly 370 young students for four professions in the aeronautical sector, leading to Vocational Baccalaureates. The courses are provided in a school context for the first two years, and then as an apprenticeship for the last year. 

The following Vocational Baccalaureates are proposed: Industrial Metalworking Technician, Machining Technician, Aeronautics – Avionics option, and Aeronautics – Structure option. 

These courses address boys and girls who have Fourth Year level at least (aged 15 to under 18 on August 25, 2014), and are highly motivated for working in a team, and on aircraft. On completion of their Vocational Baccalaureate the students who so wish – and depending on their school record – may prolong their training with a 2-year Aeronautical BTS course (Advanced Vocational Diploma). This course is run by the Midi-Pyrénées CFAI as an apprenticeship. 

New this year: for the first time, an examination centre will be put in place in Reunion Island to allow students there to take the Lycée Airbus admission tests. 

The Lycée Airbus is organising an Open Day on Saturday February 22 from 8am to 2pm to enable young students to discover the proposed professions, the school programme and the values it promotes. The presentation of the Lycée will be followed by a visit of the facilities.
