She joined the world of education two years later, training adults undertaking lifelong learning at Cipecma in Châtelaillon-Plage, where she taught information systems and office automation for some 6 years. Claire Lecard then became a Mathematics and Information Systems teacher for post-High School education, then took on the role of Student Coordinator for those studying for a vocational baccalaureate, before becoming a Tutor at the Faculty of Science and Technology in La Rochelle.
In 1995, she joined Excelia Business School as a Lecturer in Computer Science and Office Automation. In 2000, Claire Lecard joined the Bachelor in Business programme, being responsible for Year 1 students. Since 2012, she has been Head of Experiential and Personal Development for the programme, and continues to teach, whether it be lessons in IT, Understanding the Employment Market or Self-Awareness, thereby supporting students in defining their personal and professional project.
Highly conscious of the need for mutual aid (she is a volunteer for Restos du Cœur soup kitchen), environmental protection and management of student-generated waste, Claire Lecard has set up numerous initiatives to ensure Bachelor in Business students have a good understanding of these issues and are aware of their responsibilities. Since 2017, the Bachelor in Business students have been taking part in World Clean Up Day.
