Hiring a student apprentice: how does it work?

The employment contract

The professionalisation or apprenticeship contract is signed by the employer and the student. It is drawn up using the CERFA form. In addition, the duration of the working time mentioned in the contract includes the training time. The proposed assignment must be in line with the programme and therefore be validated by the Programme Head.


Student apprentices hired via work-study programmes are subject to a regulated minimum wage, which is calculated as a percentage of the minimum wage (Smic) or the conventional minimum wage (SMC) if it exists and is applicable to the company employing them. It then depends on the nature of the work-study programme contract signed: apprenticeship contract or professionnalisation contract.

Until 2027, companies benefit from an exceptional aid of €6,000 for all new work-study programme hires.
