Types of contracts
The apprenticeship contract
This written contract of employment for a limited period (CDL) or for an indefinite period (CDI) is made between an employee and an employer. It allows you to follow a sandwich course in a company under the responsibility of an apprentice master and in an apprentice training center (CFA) for 3 to 6 years.
The company and the OPCO pay for the entire cost of the training. The contract can start 3 months before the training start date and end 2 months after the training end date.
The maximum age is 29 years (30 years minus 1 day).
The maximum age may be increased to 34 years (35 years minus 1 day) in the following cases:
- The apprentice wants to sign a new contract to obtain a higher level of diploma than the one already obtained
- The apprentice’s previous contract was broken for reasons beyond his or her control
- The apprentice’s previous contract was terminated due to physical and temporary incapacity
In these cases, no more than 1 year must elapse between the 2 contracts.
There is no age limit in the following cases:
- The apprentice is recognized as a disabled worker
- The apprentice plans to create or take over a company that requires a diploma (example: Acre, Nacre or Cape individualized assistance system)
- The apprentice is a person registered as a high performance athlete.
- The apprentice does not obtain the diploma or professional title in question. In this case, the apprenticeship can be extended for a maximum of 1 year with a new contract with another employer.
Article 23 of Law No. 2018-217 of March 29, 2018 provides that the apprenticeship contract may be performed in part abroad.
Your working hours are identical to those of other employees. The legal working time is 35 hours per week. You are entitled to the legal paid vacations, i.e. 5 weeks of paid vacations per year. The employer has the option of imposing the period of time during which you can take your leave.
For the preparation of the exams, you are entitled to an additional 5 working days of leave in the month preceding the exams (this leave is split to adapt to the continuous assessment). These days are in addition to paid vacations and are paid.
Benefits to the student:
The apprentice is entitled to 5 weeks of paid vacation per year. As such, the laws, regulations and collective agreement are applicable to them under the same conditions as to other employees, insofar as their provisions are not incompatible with the requirements of their training.
It varies according to your age, and increases with each new year of your contract. Collective bargaining agreements or contractual provisions may provide for more favorable compensation for the employee.
|-18 years old||18-20 years old||21-25 years old||26 years and older|

The apprentice’s remuneration may be higher depending on the agreements applicable to the company: collective agreement, group or company agreement.
From a tax point of view, you benefit from 3 main advantages:
– No employee contributions are deducted from your gross salary up to 79% of the SMIC (i.e. €1,202). The part of the remuneration above this amount remains subject to contributions.
– Your salary is exempt from CSG and CRDS.
– Your salary is exempt from income tax up to the annual minimum wage
The professionalization contract
This employment contract covers the entirety of your training (1 year), during which you have the status of an employee. This includes a one-month trial period. Within this framework, your training is financed on the one hand by your company and on the other hand by an OPCO (Opérateur de Compétences) to which the company contributes for professional training.
The amount of the reimbursement depends on the number of effective hours of training and the hourly rate of the OPCO’s reimbursement. If the OPCO does not cover the entire cost of the training, the remainder must be paid by your host company and the balance can be financed from the training plan.
Thus, the training is fully covered by your company and their OPCO. We invite your company to contact its OPCO to find out how much the organization will pay.
In addition to this amount, your salary is 80% of the SMIC on a 35-hour basis if you are between 21 and 25 years old, and 100% of the SMIC from 26 years old. This salary may be increased depending on the collective agreement of your host company.
In addition, as an employee, you must register with the CPAM of your city or district. You benefit from exactly the same rights as all employees in terms of paid leave (special and family events as well as “any more favorable provision granted by the collective agreement or by the practices within the company”).
In addition to the legal holidays, you benefit from paid vacations according to the system applicable in the company, i.e. 2.5 days per month completed over the reference period from June 1st of the previous year to May 31st of the current year, which makes a total of 5 weeks of paid vacations for 12-month contracts.
The professionalization contract is intended for the following people:
- Young people from 16 to 25 years old (26 years old minus one day) to complete their initial training
- Beneficiary of the RSA
- Beneficiary of the specific solidarity allowance (ASS)
- Beneficiary of the disabled adults allowance (AAH)
- Person leaving a single integration contract (CUI)
Benefits for the student:
The holder of a professionalization contract is a full-fledged employee. As such, the laws, regulations and collective agreement are applicable to them under the same conditions as to other employees, insofar as their provisions are not incompatible with the requirements of their training.
The amount varies according to your age and your initial level of training.
