The labelled concept of Cité des métiers was born in the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie of Paris in 1993. The main particularities of a Cité des métiers are: the right of anonymous use, decompartmentalised approach of the Counselling and a multi-partnership approach based on the interaction between counselling and resources. Local authorities, as well as organisations working in information, guidance and job placement, are the main partners of the Cités des metiers. Read the informative leaflet.
