 TREMPLIN PRÉPABAC: HATIER HELPING SECONDARY SCHOOL PUPILS TO PREPARE FOR THEIR FUTURE

Hatier, whose books already help children succeed at school, wanted to further its commitment to secondary pupils by helping them to prepare for their professional future. Accordingly, every year since 2013, its Tremplin Prépabac programme has rewarded the best student project with a €5,000 study grant.

Many young people see their dreams and passions thwarted by a lack of financial resources. With this competition, we are supporting secondary pupils by helping them to access higher education, and by giving them real recognition. These young people, aged between 16 and 18, present their projects before a jury of professional people, which is a novel experience for them, and they receive valuable advice that will help them in the future.

Every year, we are amazed at the enthusiasm and dedication of the students, and we always look forward to the next year’s edition.

Since 2013, over 1,500 secondary pupils have taken part in the programme, and three candidates have won bursaries: Houda, who wants to be a sign language interpreter, Mickaël, a future cancer specialist, and Marine, who is passionate about maths.
