OSENGO is a non-profit VET organization, specialist in lifelong learning and vocational education,
member of the French Vocational Education Federation. OSENGO has 32 permanent training centres located in four regions of France. (www.OSENGO.fr)
For nearly 40 years, OSENGO has been supporting various target groups towards lifelong vocational education or career change:
- employees (managers, entrepreneurs)
- young people
- unemployed people
- disabled workers
OSENGO provides qualifying and certifying training in the hospitality-catering, sanitary and social, animation, tertiary, commercial and digital sectors. Beyond these certificated courses, the OSENGO Group offers also tailor-made services:

- Social integration & Working with immigrants
- Professional skills assessments

For several years, OSENGO has been one of the service providers of the French national employment agency (Pôle Emploi) to boost the job search. (Flexible and tailor-made services allowing jobseekers to benefit from personalised advice, tools and information on the labour market, and to reinforce job search techniques).
In 1988, OSENGO organized its first internships in Europe for its learners.
OSENGO created a special department for Europe related topics in 1994 and has since led numerous projects of mobility and pedagogical engineering. Since then, we have developed a strong network of European partners (40 partners in 16 EU Member States), and acquired expertise on the administrative, financial and pedagogical management of the projects. (www.europe.osengo.fr)
OSENGO Europe is mainly focused on:
- Sending trainees and professionals to Europe
- Hosting European trainees in France
- Developing European educational engineering projects
Through our internal mobility program, we send our trainees but also trainers abroad for their apprenticeship or good practice exchanges. Since 1998, OSENGO Europe has been a service provider of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region for the AUDACE + KA1 project which allows jobseekers to carry out their internship in a European company. Through these mobilities and the associated feedbacks we have observed that international mobility provides real enrichment.
We also coordinated, or participated in KA2 strategic partnerships in Tourism, Recognition of acquired skills, development of ECVET system and sharing best practices with its European partners.
OSENGO has been committed to a Quality Management System since 1990 (ISO 9001/ISQ-OPQF). Today, we are QUALIOPI certified (ISQ-OPQF) and Datadocked for all our agencies. Quality certification attests to OSENGO's competence and commitment to the kaizen (continuous improvement) approach, ensuring the satisfaction of our clients, the success of our beneficiaries, the quality of our pedagogical engineering and our ability to evolve our practices in line with the needs for improvement and market developments.
We also developed a specific Quality Plan for the management of European projects, summing up communication process between partners, rules of functioning, reminding the objectives, activities, calendar and indicators of evaluation for each specific project. Very attached to human and employment equity values, OSENGO is also engaged in a RSE process (Societal Responsibilities of Enterprises). We are also among the 3300 signatories of the diversity charter, committing ourselves to fight against discriminations and promote diversity in our training agencies.
As part of this project, OSENGO team will be able to build upon these experiences and skills and call upon its network of companies and institutional or associative partners (Youth Information network, Europe Direct, local missions or Pôle Emploi).
