ORT began operating in France in 1921. It worked with local Jewish organisations to roll out vocational training courses and to find employment for newly-arrived German refugees. During the war, ORT France operated in the area controlled by the Vichy regime. It grew after the war, helping Jewish immigrants from North Africa gain skills resulting in financial independence and helping to provide manpower for France’s depleted workforce.
ORT France operates in seven locations from Paris and Strasbourg in the north to Toulouse and Marseille in the south. In recent years it has extended its educational provision beyond high school and provides tertiary-level degree and diploma course in fields including dentistry, engineering, business management, optometry, fashion and entrepreneurship. It also maintains a successful research and development hub.
