Piaget shares its expertise
One of our company’s priorities remains the creation of new talent.
Les Ecoles de la rue du Louvre
In order to help generations of future talent, we sponsor the graduating classes of an exceptional jewellery school: Ecoles de la rue du Louvre in Paris. Piaget sponsored the graduation in 2012 and helped organise the "Soirée Jazz / BJOP". The evening showcased students' incredible work in a theme dear to Piaget, jazz. The beautiful creations that were displayed revealed the path taken by future jewellers.
The Centre de formation professionnelle des Arts Appliqués de Genève
Piaget supports the Centre de formation professionnelle des Arts Appliqués de Genève, funding an annual Design award and Creation award for the best students of the graduating class.
The Creative Academy
We collaborate with the Creative Academy, an international design school in Milan, offering young designers specific applied arts courses in the areas of jewellery, watchmaking and accessories.
Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Educational Program
We provide annual financing for the Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Educational Program (WOSTEP).
Institute of Swiss Watchmaking (IOSW)
The ever-increasing demand for luxury watches translates into a growing demand for qualified craftsmen and women to service these products. To help meet this demand, the Institute of Swiss Watchmaking was founded in 2008 by Richemont to provide dedicated, career-minded individuals with the education and training to become a part of this exciting profession.
Three schools based in Dallas (NAIOSW - North American Institute of Swiss Watchmaking), Hong-Kong (HKIOSW - Hong Kong Institute of Swiss Watchmaking) and Shanghai (CNIOSW – China Institute of Swiss Watchmaning) were opened between 2009 and 2011. These schools prepare students for the internationally recognised WOSTEP certification, a symbol of "Swiss made" excellence in this field.
Piaget’s partnership with the IOSW is a valuable complement to its training policy. The goal is to develop and maintain, on a worldwide basis, a combination of
know-how and expertise in the field of high-end watchmaking that will enable the brand to offer its customers high-quality local service.
