ORT Villiers-le-Bel opened in 1967, with particular emphasis on accommodating young Jewish people arriving in France from Morocco and Tunisia. From the start, the center ran professional training courses for students looking to find employment in the fields of accounting and secretarial work. In response to the changing needs of the Jewish community, the center opened its first courses at high school and college level in 1992.
