Association Ouvrière des Compagnons du Devoir et du Tour de France

“Les Compagnons du Devoir” support young people in developing their professional skills to a high standard among 30 trades (Metal and Industrial trades, Interior fittings and finishes, Construction, Leather and upholstery, Food trades, Rural Trades). Sharing knowledge and expertise, travel and community living are the foundations of “Les Compagnons du Devoir”. Our trainees move from company to company, city to city, country to country.  Traveling with a tool box is an adventure, a voyage of self-discovery, broadening horizons and enhancing professional outlook.  Differences become sources of enrichment and understanding, contributing to a threefold – professional, cultural and personal – education.  As we expect our trainees to be open to travelling abroad, we also welcome any young person wanting to come to train with us in France. Employers working in partnership with “Les Compagnons du Devoir” have an opportunity to engage with skilled and reliable trainees with varying levels of experience.  Such young people can enhance the workforce, offering flexibility, motivation and a cross-cultural exchange.  We also have the facility to provide bespoke in-house training packages to existing employees.
