With the "Grande École du Numérique" label, ENI Ecole Informatique was chosen to train, in the field of IT development, people who are far from employment or in retraining, in response to the very important needs of recruiters.
Gith its online campus, the ENI offers a high degree of individualisation of training and removes the barriers to access. The school is also launching a "Code Academie" course combining face-to-face and E-Learning, in partnership with the Fondation Agir Contre l'Exclusion.
ENI joins the Grande Ecole du Numérique network
The training 'Web and Mobile Web Developer', online, joins the Grande Ecole du Numérique network. Launched in 2015 by the government, the Grande Ecole du Numérique is a network of training courses in digital professions. It has been set up to give everyone, particularly young people with few or no qualifications, residents of priority neighbourhoods or people undergoing retraining, the opportunity to access jobs in the digital field, with a supported educational path, to meet the strong need for skills in companies.
The ENI positions this course, which allows students to obtain a level III professional title (bac + 2), as a real gateway to digital professions. "We give all the elements to our trainees, within the framework of this curriculum, to be competent and operational in the company. Although companies have various recruitment policies, this type of training meets the many needs they have for positions as web, mobile, or software developers", comments Baptiste Loirat, Director of the online campus.
Considered as a profession of the future and with a promising future (companies are constantly looking for candidates), the job of developer is attracting more and more people. Last year, Pôle emploi counted 75,000 recruitment projects in the IT sector. "Several hundred people contact us every month to find out more or to join our training courses. Demand is very high, especially since they are given on our online campus. More than 90 %s get a job within 3 months of graduation".added Baptiste Loirat.
Success for the new online campus
In 2018, ENI opened its campus en line. It allows you to follow 5 training courses offered by the school in the fields of IT development from 11 to 29 estimated weeks of training, as well as periods of internship in a company.
"We launched the online campus to meet a twofold objective: on the one hand to offer individualized training as well as personalization in technical choices and flexibility in the place and time of learning. On the other hand, it removes the barriers to access to training", details Baptiste Loirat.
With more than 10,000 trained computer specialists, ENI Ecole Informatique stands out for the support it offers, with a training coach (for monitoring the curriculum, progression and individualization of courses) and a job coach to enable rapid and sustainable integration into the job market.
It is also distinguished by the successful digitisation of societal notions, essential in the construction of a personal or professional project, and includes courses dedicated to gender equality, disability and CSR.
A recent quality audit of the ENI, conducted by FAFIEC (funding agency) highlights :
- a real consideration of the profiles and needs of trainees and companies,
- the effectiveness of the articulation between the teams of trainers / training managers / company relations having "value as an example in the profession".
Each training course taken on the online campus is strictly identical to that taken on the physical campuses of ENI, located in Nantes, Rennes, and Niort. Recruitment criteria, expectations, support and the qualifications obtained are therefore the same.
Building on the success of the first few months, ENI aims to train more than 200 new people on its online campus (young people, experienced IT specialists and people undergoing retraining) by the end of this year.
Launch of a course in partnership with the Foundation Acting Against Exclusion (FACE)
As a partner of ENI, FACE is committed on a daily basis against all forms of exclusion. Its expertise takes the form of actions carried out in particular within the company, for employment. The two entities are launching the Code Académie in Nantes next May, with a first course: the 'Web and Mobile Web Developer' training course in Blended Learning. “We innovate from a pedagogical point of view by allowing an even stronger individualization of the training while creating a spirit of promotion. The trainees are trained thanks to online campus resources and face-to-face time is set up daily, supervised by trainers to re-explain concepts or deepen them according to each student's progress", says Baptiste Loirat.
This course has also just been awarded the "Grande École du Numérique" label. It has been designed to offer a third training possibility, complementing the 100 % face-to-face and 100 % distance learning. A first class of about 20 people will start in a few weeks. The same model will be launched in Rennes for a start next September.
