Start date: 30 Jun 2016, End date: 29 Jun 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Thanks to prior mobilities experiences abroad and a positive outcome, Lycée Adam de Craponne is proud to promote and offer a higher number of mobilities with the help of European programmes and our partners. Nowadays, our students come from sometimes lower classes and it's for them the sole opportunity to discover another culture, way of life and European professional behaviours.Students in vocational schools in France spend 22 weeks on work placement during their 3-year course. They will spend their last 4 weeks in foreign companies. (in Great Britain, Italy, Spain and Austria)The trainee ship will be assessed at the end and will count for the final exam. (Vocational secondary school diploma)This full immersion stay will enable them to develop and acquire professional and linguistic skills, compare different occupational environments and work methods and fit in them. It will also make them more aware of the necessity to accept to move abroad as nowadays more and more people find a job in another European country. This is a fact that our students have difficulties in accepting. This is why we need to prepare them to be ready to leave their home country.The participants are in their final school year and come from different professional fields :Commerce, Customer Services and Reception, Elderly and Child Care, Administration, Machining, Electronics, Electro-technics, Boilermaker. That's 50 students, a mix of boys and girls, some still under 18.The placements will take place : from 03/03/2017 to 03/04/2017 Before the placements, the students will attend classes where the project coordinators will prepare them for their mobility.The professional tasks performed in the companies will meet the official requirements.A group of teachers will meet every week (project coordinators) and will deal with different aspects (communication with partners, information to students and their parents, candidates' selection, preparing students personally, culturally, linguistically and professionally, CVs, portfolio, organization of trips and accommodation, ECAS, internal and external broadcasting)Expected results:-better school results and obtaining of the diploma (100% of graduation)- better level in foreign languages (minimum B1+)-better chance to continue their studies in higher education (35% of graduates continue in higher education)-professional experience approved by Europass and Europro certificates, which will give them more job opportunities In France as well as in other European countries Benefits for the participants :Professional skills enhanced, sharing and transfer of professional skills all their life.Benefits for the school : - consolidation of our partnerships- more attractive in school training and less school drop outs- Europe awareness more developpedBenefits for the foreign companies :benefit from the French savoir-faire-Benefits for the French companies:potential employees with European experience
