Dedicated class for Professional Baccalaureate in Maintenance of Connected Production Systems
In 2021, the Maurice Rondeau High School and Disneyland Paris launched a dedicated class in Maintenance of Connected Production Systems. The objective is to train students to be rigorous professionals whose mission is to maintain park facilities to offer our guests an exceptional experience. This two-year course, alternating work and formal training, enables students to be trained in attraction, hotels and building maintenance at our destination. On the program, you will leverage curiosity, energy, teamwork, and service skills to help bring Disneyland Paris magic to life. Recruitment for this dedicated class takes place in the spring for the school term beginning in September.
Our Campus Reps Program
Selected from among our Cast Members and specially trained for this mission, our Campus Reps embody our professions. They meet with middle school, high school and university students, and answer their questions by presenting our professions and career possibilities, motivating them to join us…. Each year, they form pairs to visit schools and present, through their personal and shared experiences, the many facets of our professional universe.
Our Equal Opportunity at Schools Initiatives
Equal opportunity is a keystone of our company. That’s why Disneyland Paris supports middle school and high school students with disabilities and helps them to explore our job opportunities through open days or 1- or 2-week ‘discovery’ placements. We also help them gain insight into the working world through workshops on CV writing or preparing for a job interview. Training sessions, coaching and work placements also enable us to provide job search support to these students.
