The Grande Ecole du Numérique is a public body for short certified training courses in the digital field. Set up in September 2015, its training programmes are already teaching a large number of people (particularly young people without work experience and those in work but seeking to retrain, among others) to be rapidly operational in jobs using digital technologies. After one year of activity, 171 previously unavailable training programmes, often using innovative teaching methods, have been accredited across France. The Grande Ecole du Numérique is now becoming a public interest group (Groupement d’intérêt public), a flexible legal structure that will enable public and private sector entities to work together towards a shared goal.
Societe Generale is one of the four founding member companies of the Grande Ecole du Numérique. This commitment illustrates the importance of the digital transformation in the Group's strategy and the value it places on developing skills for the future, both within the company and outside it.
