About Osengo Europe
European & international development centre
Osengo Europe is the European and international development arm of Osengo by Aformac. Osengo is a non-profit vocational education and training (VET) organisation specialising in lifelong learning and vocational education.
A network of over 40 European partners
Since its creation in 1994, the "Pôle Europe" has developed a solid network of European partners (40 partners in 16 EU member states), and has acquired considerable expertise in the administrative, financial and pedagogical management of European projects. Osengo Europe has two offices, one in Lyon and the other in Clermont-Ferrand.
We set up European mobility for our students as part of their training and internships with the Erasmus+ programme. We also welcome foreign trainees through our reception service in Lyon. The first internships in Europe took place in 1988 for Aformac learners, which has since become Osengo.
Coordination of European projects
Osengo Europe has developed a strong experience in the coordination of European projects within the framework of the Erasmus + programme through innovation research. We are constantly striving to improve our know-how and work on educational initiatives throughout the year, thanks to the European Commission's Erasmus+ programme.
A strong presence
To set up and work on new projects we rely on Osengo's 32 permanent training centres. We also benefit from mobility relays in the 32 Osengo establishments. They disseminate, relay and are part of the mobility acts and pedagogical engineering. Our sites are located in four regions of France: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Occitanie, nouvelle aquitaine and centre Val de Loire.
The strength of a Group
Osengo by Aformac has been involved in professional training for almost 40 years and promotes the development of skills through training. As a training centre and CFA, our wide catalogue of qualifying courses, work-study courses and professional training modules enable our learners to develop their skills in a variety of sectors.

The creation of new training courses or modules
OSENGO Europe intends, on the basis of the structuring carried out and the existing team, to deploy its action towards its apprentices of the Vocational Training of the group. The target territories are : Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Occitanie Pyrénées-Méditerranée, Nouvelle Aquitaine and Centre Val de Loire.
OSENGO’s core business, the health and social services sector, and more specifically the personal services sector, represented nearly 1.4 million employees in 2014 in France.
The training courses must be adapted to this market in which European mobility is now an essential component; the learners are more confronted with ageing people of foreign nationality for example. The ability to exchange with dependent people is essential. OSENGO wishes to extend access to European mobility to the apprentices of the newly created Vocational Training entity.
- Hospitality and catering (cooks, waiters)
- The service sector
We have identified the need to improve our preparation for the departure of trainees going on mobility. We are planning specific activities targeting the evaluation of transversal competences before departure in order to measure the contribution of mobility during a second positioning on return coupled with a new preparation for departure. We wish to increase the use of digital preparation in order to increase our independence from hazards and also to allow those who are geographically distant to benefit from Erasmus departures.
We also wish to add an intercultural module to better prepare our learners for the differences of European countries and to increase their tolerance in general.
Within the Osengo Group, we are committed to continuously increasing the quality of our training. In order to develop our offer, we clearly want to integrate the possibility of a training course in Europe into our training courses. We see this as a guarantee for better quality and more professional experience. We see this as a propellant for the future insertion in the active life of a learner.
The emphasis on a “Europe” pathway where the internship abroad is a point on which we wish to strengthen and communicate more.
We also believe that highlighting a European spirit and belonging will promote the image of Europe to young people and more generally to the public.
