Passerelles numériques strives for a world where young underprivileged people can have a better life through access to education, training and employment to better leverage their potential and willpower.
Fair and Rigorous Selection Concentrating on the poorest areas in the large region surrounding each training center, our selection process follows four stages: Information and awareness-raising sessions to explain the IT sector and its opportunities, and to introduce our programs. Written exams in logic, mathematics and English to check the applicants’ abilities. Individual interviews to assess each applicant’s motivation, maturity and mindset. Social investigations to evaluate the family’s resources and validate their eligibility. Only the most underprivileged are admitted. General Training in Business Skills This differentiating component of our training programs is highly appreciated by recruiting companies. We specifically cover: English language learning. “Professional life” training nurturing business skills based on general knowledge, business world knowledge and behavioral skills. Higher-level soft skills such as open-mindedness, autonomy, flexibility and initiative. Solid technical and practical training Focusing on employability, PN’s training is constantly updated in order to match business needs; it aims at being practical, targeted and certified. Social and Educational Development The success of these young people without resources from rural origins depends on our providing them with both: Material support: student housing, equipment, financial support, medical care and health insurance. Moral and educational support: follow-up and counseling throughout their studies. We also develop a pedagogy based on the values of trust, responsibility and solidarity. Guidance to Employment Students are guided through both their internship and job search by our Company Relations department. This department is closely supported by our alumni network and by Passerelles numériques’ partners.
