Job Innovation

"I gave my Career a second wind with Upskilling." Waby participated in the programme and his life changed!

Waby El Achaoui took part in the Upskilling programme at BNP Paribas Personal Finance. This digital career training programme is conducted in partnership with Simplon, the network of social digital factories, and offers employees the chance to gain real skills. Waby shares his experience.

Armed with these information, I started questioning the people around me to find out more and I met with a colleague working on mobility for the IT employees. She explained that it’s a work-linked training, with very simple terms, born out of a partnership between the Simplon school network and the ISD. This certified training takes place for 9 months and the company pays for the course.

This colleague also told me that Simplon is a network of innovative continuing education schools that is made up of 42 inclusive, community-focused “training factories” that provide training across France, even in isolated areas. The schools actively work on a diverse range of issues, including gender parity.

I decided to go ahead and I don’t regret it! It was hard but here I am, 9 months later, with a Developer job at the Digital Factory. In addition to learning about new fields, I was able to jumpstart my career thanks to Upskilling, which introduced a breath of fresh air and new challenges to my day-to-day work.

BNP Paribas Personal Finance is here for you so that you can take part in innovative training courses, gain new skills and seek out opportunities for advancement!
