For more than nine centuries Les Compagnons du Devoir (The Companions of Duty) have been providing high quality training for young people in a variety of manual trades. Training offers both apprenticeships and higher-level skills training for traditional and modern techniques. Trainees move between workplaces all over France and abroad, learning a trade but also about themselves, through experience of different people and cultures.
Training helps students achieve excellence in one of 30 trades from initial qualifications through to Masters degree (Australian equivalent).
Les Compagnons du Devoir are one of two schools in the world recognised under UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage safe-guarding program+.
Pre-COVID it was estimated that fewer than 100 Compagnons were residing across Australia.
Join four Compagnons who live and work on Australia’s east coast as they discuss history, education and bringing their highly regarded skills to the Australian workforce.
