Training summary

This training, like all Talent Preparations, is intended primarily for the most deserving higher education scholarship students to prepare for competitive exams giving access to management positions in the civil service. In a logic of mixing and emulation of the profiles of the preparers, candidates who do not meet the resource conditions can apply.
Open for initial and continuing training, the Public Administration License Prépa Talents can be followed over one year (14 p.m. to 20:30 p.m. and Saturday morning) or, on an employee basis, over 2 years (evening classes, 17:30 p.m. to 20:30 p.m., and Saturday morning ). It is aimed at a diverse audience: students, job seekers, contract workers, public officials

Training aims

This Prépa Talents class aims to support talented young people from modest origins towards public service careers thanks to reinforced preparation courses for category A and B civil service competitions.
It brings together in close partnership with the University of Reunion, the three sides of the public service, represented by the Prefecture, the Regional Platform for Interministerial Support for Human Resources Management (PFRH), the regional delegation of the National Center for the Territorial Civil Service (CNFPT), the regional council of Reunion, the University Hospital of Reunion (CHU), the Regional Institute of Health Management of the Indian Ocean (IRMSOI) and the Regional Institute of Administration of Metz (IRA).

Advantages of the training

Prépa Talents Scholarship: Students enrolled in Prépa Talents will be financially supported during their training by a dedicated scholarship of 4000 euros, which can be combined with the scholarship based on social criteria, in order to be able to devote themselves entirely to this demanding preparation. They will also be able to benefit from support for accommodation or catering.
