Dans le sens du poil...
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The creation of the "Animal Care Assistant" option is based on the fact that the pet market is growing. It is therefore an applicant sector since the pet occupies a place more and more important in our society. The Animal Care Assistant is expected to provide daily care and welfare to all pets and animals in captivity. The Institut Sainte-Ursule of Namur and the Institut Maria Goretti of Angleur have decided to try a new experience of European mobility by joining a consortium with the CCG. Twenty students of the Agronomy sector, supervised by training professionals, will carry out a three-week internship in Auvergne. Young beneficiaries are enrolled in the final year of the 3rd degree of vocational training, final phase of their initial training. At the end of the school year, they will receive a Certificat de Qualification (CQ). As part of this project focused on training "Assistant Animal Care", a major partner was associated. It is the Agricultural Vocational College of Saint Gervais d'Auvergne located on the grounds of the farm of Villatelle: 44 hectares of meadows and woods enhanced by the flocks of sheep farming. This School has good experience in European projects, especially with Finland, and has exceptional infrastructure. The kennel is used to support all students in practical training such as: monitoring of pregnancy, birthing, various treatments, socialization, education, etc. ... where each student, under the supervision of technicians, participates in the management of the kennel and in the technical outings. The level of responsibility which is then entrusted to them is in relation to their progress in training. Throughout the year, the pedagogical menagerie houses more than 150 species, supporting vocational education and training. Five sectors are represented: ornamental fishes, small mammals, arthropods, birds and reptiles. Maintenance of animals is carried out by the students. The College has all the equipment required for grooming: fifteen workstations comprising all the necessary tools. The consortium, which will be followed by the Mobility Cell until the end of the project, has chosen the learning outcomes to be acquired by students during the course. Together, the partners will ensure the development of specific training objectives and their evaluation through preliminary meetings between sending partner and during the preparatory visit to the host partner (or by e-mail exchanges). Preparing young people will be organized by the sending partner. The achievement of training will benefit of the presence of accompaniers sent by the sending partners, which will liaise between the young people and the host partner. They will ensure the course evaluation, the learning outcomes evaluation (based on documents previously prepared) and the integration of the results in the Belgian curriculum of each beneficiary. The final report will be prepared under the supervision of the Mobility Cell). The presentation to the recipients of the Europass Mobility, the Europass Curriculum Vitae and the Language Passport will be done at an official ceremony organized by the CCGPE-DGEO). The results of this consortium will be integrated into all activities carried out under the supervision of the Mobility Cell and distributed by the CCGPE-DGEO towards national authorities. The impact of this project, for the students, will be to acquire abroad specific professional skills, which can be validated on site and integrated in the Belgian regular curriculum (acquisition of knowledge and skills). From the sending and the host partners point of view, this project will promote an exchange between European professionals assets in the same area of training and an experience in a modular qualification, focused on one or more learning outcomes in the context of the implementation of the qualification by units (CPU) in the French Community of Belgium and of the system ECVET in the EU. This project will focus on the need to integrate, in a sustainable way, the dimension of European mobility in the latter part of the vocational initial training and will raise awareness of the implementation of the ECVET system. At the regional level (French Community), these mobilities achieved within consortia coordinated by the CCGPE-DGEO will be integrated into further activities or projects undertaken by the CCGPE-DGEO (notably with the ESF) to strengthen the implementation of the qualification by units within the vocational education and training, in relation to the ECVET system.
