A Job Academy at the Château de Versailles


Emblematic and prestigious place, the Château de Versailles will welcome, from January 14th 2019, a new session of the Job Academy(*), called "Henriette Campan"(**).


The Association FACE Yvelines is in charge of the recruitment, through exploratory talks based on several criteria: geographic proximity, real motivation, clear professional goal and results expectations. Selected on a volunteer basis, the mentors are on the staff of the Château de Versailles, who includes more than sixty different careers.


Everyone's professions are intentionally various, a fountain engineer can mentor a auxiliary nurse and a museum curator can coach an accountant, the main thing is elsewhere: beeing welcome every week at the château help to get familiarized with the exceptional place, whose gratifying prestige inspires confidence and ambition.


Capacity-building workshops led by a photographer or a community manager are also planned, in private spaces of the Château.


This collaboration has been settled in the frame of a  competency sharing approach supported by the Château de Versailles, only cultural establishment committed in supporting this solidarity programme at national level. Sixteen job seekers will be mentored for four months.
