Consortium d'Etablissements Publics Auvergnats pour Garantir une Europe Solidaire
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The Auvergne region, counting worldwide famous companies (such as Michelin, Constellium, Vichy Cosmétique, Sofama (Vuitton)...),…), is above all a region known for its tourism and its water-cure establishments.
For many years its development has been slowed down by its geographical isolation . This region has the shape of a crater opened to the north with its Limagne and Bourbonnais plains and shrunk in the south with the Allier Valley. This geographic topology contributes in the difficulties of transport by train , plane or cars.
Since then Auvergne has been developing itself thanks to the growth of new motorways and Clermont airport .
The 3 high schools involved in this project which all have a European catering section have the common aim to share their European experiences in spite of the geographical distance between them. They all have the same project to send students on work placement abroad : in restaurants, schools, companies, …So they are preparing a common project allowing each school to limit the transport fares by sharing the cost for the trainees (transport, accommodation, food) and permitting to improve the European partnership.
This common project will help to solve some problems of social inequality, of foreign language learning , of autonomy and self-confidence for our students. It will help us to welcome our partners in better conditions by discovering our region in the different local areas . It will also be easier to find other partners to welcome our students on work placement.
The participants will be students preparing a BTEC national or a first certificate diploma , It may also concern teachers who wish to share their learning or different management methods and foreign traditions. The 3 Auvergne schools have already adopted technological methods to better communicate (mails, blogs, skype…) in order to make our project a success.
All types of communication will allow the 3 partners to develop:
- The number of candidates involved in European sections.
- The European certification for different diplomas.
- The number of teachers interested in obtaining the English professional certification in their professional fields.
- The number of students passing the Europass Mobility.
It will also give the students more opportunities to find a work thanks to their European certification and to strenghten their wish to carry on their studies.
With our learners' mobility, the feeling of belonging to the European Community will be stronger in our schools, families and companies.
As a conclusion, our trainees will be the ambassadors of better knowledge and professional skills of our schools and companies abroad.
