- For Teachers
I'm trying to find the right term to define a student who alternatively goes to school and works for a company, within the framework of his studies.
Could you help me, please?
Thank you very much for your help
I don't speak French but this makes me think of "work-study student". Don't know if this would mean anything in BrE.
I would translate it as "a student on a sandwich course".

When I was teaching in France I had a lot of students who were doing a BTS, some of them were doing it on "alternance" and I always gave them "sandwich course" as the English equivalent.
Sandwich course is not used in AmE.
