Our Team

Quality teaching that perfectly matches the professional expectations of the Applied Arts Sector.

Each of our instructors works in his own profession in parallel with his teaching program.

Thus our faculty is made up of numerous well known personalities, among whom there are architects, script-writers, graphic artists, computer graphic professionals, roughmen, artistic directors, agency managers,, advertising specialists, painters, 3D animators, video game creators, web specialists and even journalists.

In addition to their experience on the ground, our collaborators are always ready to share their current projects with their students. Students thus quickly leave behind their high school experience and are treated as young professionals and receive individual follow up.

This is a concrete example of the human face of Autograf.

Human, but also convivial.

Autograf is a family where an accessible administrative team listens to the students and is always to the students. There is no question of students having to survive alone.

Autograf is both professional and convivial.

The administrative and teaching staff are very accessible , willing to listen and constantly available, and that applies to everybody who comes to the school be they students, instructors, parents or simply visitors.

A tailored pedagogical follow up.

The Pedagogical director as well as the involved instructors in line with all the teaching staff monitor students regularly in the course of their training. To formalize this concern the school’s programs envisage one or more progress evalutions during all the training on offer.

Experienced Instructors.

This is the sine qua non of our success. And this is why all our Instructors are both specialized and experienced. All our teachers and instructors are recruited on the basis of their professional experience and their confirmed qualities as teachers.
