SAN FRANCISCO, July 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holberton School, a project-based college alternative educating the next generation of software engineers today announced it will open a new campus in Paris, France, with its partner Actual Group.

This third campus will extend this partnership and extend the Holberton School footprint in France. 

While Holberton will continue to ensure technical excellence amongst the students, Actual Group will help place Holberton School students on the labor market, Paris being where the need for software engineering talent is one of the biggest in Europe.

“For us, the alliance between Holberton School and Actual Group is the unique opportunity to combine one of the best training courses in the world in digital professions with the assurance of a job upon graduation,” said Samuel Tual, Chairman of Actual Group. “Many of our customers and partners tell us about their difficulties in recruiting tech profiles to cover their digitalization needs. Faced with this observation, we decided to grasp the nettle and help train its new experts. Our objective: to respond more quickly to the needs of our customers and to guarantee them profiles of excellence.”

Holberton School Paris first cohort will begin in September, synchronizing with Holberton’s 26 other campuses spanning 18 additional countries.
