French Apprenticeship Tax

What is the French Apprenticeship Tax?

The apprenticeship tax is a compulsory tax for French companies. Its purpose is to participate in financing the development of initial technological and vocational education and training.

It consists of two parts: 
  • 87% of the funds are used to finance work-study programmes;
  • 13% finance initial technological and vocational training other than work-study programmes, including other schemes formerly known as “non quota” or “barème” (scale).

Why pay us the balance of your apprenticeship tax ?

Your contribution helps us to:

  • Prepare our students for the workplace
  • Finance visits from the world of work during our annual Careers Week or themed workshops; 
  • Organise visits to businesses.

Your financial support is essential to support the development of our courses, guarantee the excellence of our teaching and pursue one of our priority objectives: to prepare our students for the workplace.  The purpose of the apprenticeship tax is to involve companies in the training of their future employees. When you support Sciences Po Strasbourg, you are investing in training your future employees!
