1941: Faced with the German occupation, the Rue Monsieur Institute in Paris, under the direction of the Society of the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, decided to leave the capital and move to Toulouse.

Thus, at 19 rue St Hilaire, the Social and Family Institute was opened with 60 students. In October 1942, the Institute moved to rue des Arts and in 1944 it occupied a villa on rue Ingres.

When the war was over, the Institute decided that part of the teaching would remain in Toulouse: the Toulouse Executive School was born.

Very quickly, it obtained the approval of the Ministry of National Education to prepare student teachers for the new state diploma “Monitorat d’Enseignement Ménager Familial”.
In 1959, it became part of the technical household teaching (law


However, the needs evolved and the more scientific teaching as well as the more advanced pedagogical training required better adapted and larger premises.

Thanks to the moral and financial support of the Caisse d’Allocations Familiales de la Haute Garonne and the Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Public Health and Population, a functional complex was built in the middle of a 3-hectare park in the Côte Pavée district, with a student residence attached. Construction began in 1962 and was completed in 1965.

From then on, the Limayrac Institute diversified its training courses in response to the demand of managers from the different economic sectors of the region and endeavored to satisfy the demand of families and to offer new careers.

In 1970, the Sanitary and Social sector was expanded and the Brevet de Technicien Supérieur was created.

In 1977, it took over the Purpan School of Dietetics (BTS Dietetics created in 1960).

From 1971 onwards, the Institut Limayrac diversified with the creation of a number of BTS: Executive Secretary (1971) – Tourism (1975) – Accounting and Management (1978) – Digital Systems (1985) – Computer Services for Organizations (2003). The diploma of Family Social Economy Advisor was opened in 1973 and the Diploma of Accounting and Management in 1991.

The Institute and the School of Dietetics were accredited as Continuing Education Centers in 1976: The Continuing Education Center developed training programs in the social and health fields (Training for the Judicial Representative for the Protection of Guardians, the State Diploma for Social Workers, and the State Diploma for Family Social Intervention Technicians). In the more recent past, it has also opened preparation courses for the competitive examinations for speech therapists and nurses

The close contacts that the Institute maintains with professionals as well as the concern to meet current requirements have led the Institute to develop post-BTS studies: Bachelor in Marketing Communication – Bachelor in Human Resources – Bachelor in Computer Project Management followed by the training for International Project Manager in Computer Science – Bachelor in Tourism followed by the training for Commercial Development Manager and finally the DSCG (Superior Diploma in Accounting and Management)

In addition, the opening of the large European market has led the Institute to expand internationally since 1993, and thus to open up to new training programs such as ERASMUS and since 2014 Erasmus+.

We particularly support exchanges within the framework of European programs and networks, the mobility of students, teachers and staff.
