Company overview

WebForce3 is a leading player in training for the digital professions. It delivers short, intensive and job-oriented training courses (90% placement rate) for the long-term unemployed or currently employed workers who need to acquire new skills in order to find jobs, retain their existing positions or switch jobs. Having long applied a 100% boot camp model (accelerated training), the group has also been offering work-study training courses since the end of 2020 and has set itself the target of quickly increasing the share of this type of learning in its activities to 50%.

As part of its B2C focus, WebForce3 helps its learners obtain financial assistance to reduce their out-of-pocket training costs as much as possible. On the B2B side, it supports HR teams for their recruiting campaigns, creating customized training courses meeting the specific needs of a company or for sectors facing a shortage of qualified workers. WebForce3 also creates inclusive training courses designed for people with disabilities, former prisoners, etc.
