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.

Founded more than sixty-five years ago, Lycée Airbus is situated in the heart of the Airbus Saint-Eloi plant in Toulouse. One of its distinctive features is that its students are immersed right from day one in the life of the company. The classrooms and workshops are located inside the plant, and the students benefit from the same working conditions as their future colleagues: corporate culture, in-house regulations, company restaurant, etc. Lycée Airbus is associated with Airbus Operations SAS, and has contractual ties with the French Ministry of Education. Teaching is free of charge and the students are entitled to state grants in accordance with the applicable regulations. More than one hundred students graduate from Lycée Airbus each year. Most of them are subsequently hired by Airbus Group or its partners in the aeronautical sector.
