Because “30% of students drop out of their first year at university”, Article 1 has created a personalised study-path guidance programme that combines a collaborative website and face-to-face workshops.
The equal opportunities study-path guidance programme is based on face-to-face workshops in French secondary schools located in priority neighbourhoods or that have students from priority education zones or rural areas. The Foundation is extremely proud to have already enabled the organisation of 35 workshops, thanks to the outstanding commitment of our employees.
Article 1 has also developed a free platform that is open to everyone and recognised by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. In addition to recommending study paths that result of 4 years of research, the platform also connects secondary school students with students in further education that have a similar profile. 15,000 volunteer student advisors are ready to share their experience with secondary school students, answering their queries on the website, and thus providing additional advice to complement guidance from teachers and parents.
90% of young people who connect with a student advisor consider that their discussions provided information they would not have been able to access elsewhere.
