Founded in 1864 by François Barthélemy Arlès-Dufour, a silk merchant, with the support of Henri Germain, a banker and founder of Crédit Lyonnais, the SEPR aims to enable everyone to learn and train.
SEPR is open to all those wishing to take part in alternance or full-time training.
A true pioneer of alternance, recognized as a public utility in 1878, SEPR is today the first initial vocational training centre in the Rhône-Alpes region. Nearly 3,600 young apprentices and high school students are trained in some 60 trades each year.
