On 17 December 2018, as part of European Vocational Skills Week, students from the Charles Alliès Vocational High School in Pézenas organised the ‘Tomorrows Commercial Training’ event. This was part of the in BTS Digitalisation Negotiation of Customer Relation training.

The event took place in the presence of Mr Christophe Euzet, Member of Parliament.

The objective of the week is to highlight that VET is a wise choice leading to excellence in education, quality jobs and better employability. This year, the future of VET is receiving particular attention in the field of digitalisation. This makes it possible to manage one's career and develop 21st century skills throughout one's life, including at international level (Erasmus project).

As a French ambassador high school, this event provided an opportunity to reflect on the evolution of business training, to facilitate the professional integration of graduate students as well as many partners during conferences, debates and workshops. On this occasion, the students presented their mini-companies, including "Arts'B Squad", a commercial management company in partnership with Atelier d'Art de France, "Save Blue Ocean", specialising in raising young people's awareness of waste reduction and "SMJ", an event management company in partnership with Printival.

The institution has shared its experience in the Erasmus+, E-twinning, European Vocational Skills Week projects in Spain and Norway.
