Synopsis:
School of Life is the third and final part of a trilogy about young second-generation immigrants just as they’re entering the workplace. The young men and women in this final part are on work/ study programmes. They learn a career by spending one or two days a week in the classroom and three and four days at their employer’s. Not all of them are Belgian, but in the words of the director of one of the training centres where I spent a year filming: “We are training the tradesmen of tomorrow. In Brussels, a tradesman will more likely be called Ahmed than Jean- François”.
