From 2012, Atlas International Culture has been the privileged partner of FOREM, the Walloon Agency for Employment and Trainings, to operate the BRIC Program.
The BRIC Program is a governmental initiative, aiming to help young graduates and job seekers in their professional career, by enabling them to realize an internship abroad and gain valuable experience. Atlas International Culture has been appointed by FOREM to operate the program in China. We manage the whole program, from internship placement to accommodation arrangement, Chinese classes and visa procedure management. We also arrange cultural activities for the trainees and have dedicated agents in China to help them for any problems in their daily life over there.
Between 40 and 60 trainees leave every year with the BRIC Program. We are able to manage all kind of profiles and backgrounds – photographer, engineer, communication officer, marketing specialist, translator, artists, etc. The host companies are renowned companies in their field of activity, from artistic agencies to key industrial companies, in Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan. After this first experience in China, 10% of our trainees are seduced by China and return there for a job offer, for complementary studies or with another scholarship program.
Internship placement is also available on a tailor-made basis, for people not eligible for the BRIC Program of FOREM. In that case, our team work hand in hand with the trainee to meet his or her objectives in compliance with his or her background, with a customized program that can include an internship, but also Chinese classes, visa services, accommodation, etc.
