FRANCE - NIORT

ICSSA (Saint-André Superior Catholic Institute) is a two-in-one institution: a post-baccalaureate high school and a training centre located at the heart of Niort. ICSSA receives over 250 students and interns every year, at a modern campus in a pleasant and welcoming environment.

The institute positions professionnalisation at the heart of its pedagogical approach by allowing its students to undergo numerous corporate immersion periods (internships, work-study). It is mainly through solid network of partner companies that ICSSA steers its students towards employment.

It equally fosters international mobility by encouraging its students to carry out their professional internships abroad. The institute guarantees supervision and support for all pupils in the training plan.
