3 Key Points to Pave the Way for Your Work-Study Program 

Define a real need, and have a very clear vision of the mission entrusted to the work-study student. The objective must be clear to all parties involved - the student, the company, and the training organization.  

Be aware of the time required to accompany a young person on a work-study program. Regular time must be set aside to take stock of what has been learned and to identify areas for improvement. This guarantees the quality of the work-study program and the success of the challenge.  

The training organization must validate the content of the work-study assignment to ensure that it matches the training provided. This is a key factor in the success of the project.
