Echanges, Savoir-faire et Culture pour les Apprentis Lorrains en Europe
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The regional Council of Lorraine has been committed since 2009 as part of its policy of security of life courses a proactive policy to promote European and international mobility of Lorraine’s population, including apprentices. Under section 8 of the Act of March the 5th, 2014 promoting vocational learning in France and the framework of strategic guidelines for the quality of learning in Lorraine, the regional Council wants to encourage more European mobility. Indeed, European mobility is a means to improve the vocational learning of apprentices and their skills related socio-economic issues. This project is exclusively for the apprentices from V and IV levels, which is a public unwilling to mobility, particularly because of the young age of apprentices and technical and legal barriers. For this reason, this regional project of mobility for apprentices, coordinated by the Regional Council of Lorraine on behalf of 9 vocational centers in Lorraine providing different formations (crafts, agriculture, catering trade, construction, services ...) from level V to level III, aims to offer these apprentices the opportunity to experience a first work placement in Europe and acquire new professional, personal and language skills, that will be used in the exercise of the chosen profession. Mobility, organized in groups or more individually, wants to be a leverage for building character of the apprentice, to strengthen its perception of the environment that surrounds it, to sharpen its ability to adapt to new constraints at different working methods. The project will allow 194 apprentices (with accompanying) to stop in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Hungary, Czech Republic and other European countries still in order to perform an internship during 2 or 3 weeks, preceded by an upstream preparation of mobility between June 2015 and May 2017. This project will realize grouped pooling of human, technical and financial resources in Lorraine regarding the management and coordination of the project and ensure that Erasmus + funds are best used for the participants and their preparation for departure. Access to new skills is a challenge for the Lorraine’s apprentices given the privileged geographical position border of Lorraine (only French region on the borders of three member states of the European Union - Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany) which, despite the global crisis offers interesting job opportunities. Intermediate Project partners are mostly vocational learning institutions, chambers and other European regions with which discussions have already taken place. The partners have hosted apprentices in good conditions during the projects coordinated by the Lorraine Region since 2009, and they are ready to repeat the experience.
