Centre d'Employabilité Francophone

The Centre d'Employabilité Francophone (CEF) of Beirut is a space designed to welcome students, young entrepreneurs, and trainers, among others.
It is designed to provide support, self-training, certification, and tutoring services oriented towards personal development, through preparation for professional integration, stimulation of entrepreneurial spirit, and collaborative and creative work.

Launched in September 2021, the CEF Beirut is the first of its kind in the region and its main mission is to facilitate the professional integration of Lebanese students and support their first steps on the path to entrepreneurship.

An integrated and collaborative global platform will link all AUF CEFs around the world with each other and with the other AUF service areas, in order to enrich the face-to-face training offer through distance training and promote exchanges.

Why the CEF of Beirut?

  • To respond to a real need expressed by students and the various stakeholders of member universities as well as the highest academic and political authorities during the Global Consultation conducted by the AUF in 2020;
  • To enable Lebanon’s universities to provide their students with the services of a high-level employability center, designed to international standards, in support of existing mechanisms for professional integration ;
  • To support student entrepreneurship

CEF service offer:

POLE 1: Counselling, information and tutoring employment

POLE 2: Additional training in transversal skills

POLE 3: Professional Certifications

POLE 4: Entrepreneurial pre-incubation

In this perspective, the CEF of Beirut is a mixing space where the academic world and the professional world rub shoulders. Among its main objectives is the interaction between young graduates and future recruiters, the university public and socio-professional forces: the labour market, civil society, NGOs, socio-educational backgrounds.

On the cef’s programme, events — round tables, debates, days on guidance, etc. — which will bring together different categories of actors concerned, and a wide range of different types of training, particularly in transversal skills, and certifications. It will also be a place of incubation of projects.
