En immersion professionnelle à Cracovie
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The MFR la Saillerie is an establishment of professional block-release training belonging to the network of “Maisons Familiales Rurales” and under contract with the French department of Agriculture. The course trainings offered by the MFR la Saillerie are essentially trainings in the area of people care, all these trainings take place by alternance that is to say 15 days at school followed of 15 days of professional training. Since 2006, the MFR la Saillerie has been involved in a process of European mobility for students welcomed by Polish structures in Cracow. This mobility was possible thanks to the program Leonardo which concerned more than 180 students. Our participation in the program Leonardo and then Erasmus in 2015, permitted us to reinforce the links between the Polish training structures and our training centre.
In 2013, the MFR board of directors voted for the MFR la Saillerie to be part of the new European program ERASMUS+2014-2020. Throughout this program, the MFR la Saillerie wishes that its students benefit from a teaching of quality in order to help them in their future social and professional integration. A professional experience abroad should permit to the participants to develop their professional and social competences as well as to discover a new culture in a European country usually not much known by young French people in general.
The participants in the program are students in their second year of training in “CAPA qualification for Services in Rural Area” and, for the first time, young students in “vocational high school diploma services to the people and territories”(BAC PRO SAPAT). They form a group of students aged between 16 and 18 years old and originating from the Maine et Loire department. All along their qualification training, they realize several weeks of training in companies in structures such as infant schools or reception centres for elderly people. The stay abroad is part of the training plan for these two trainings.
This placement of 2 weeks will be the occasion for the participants to realize day-to-day tasks in reception centres for children, teenagers or elderly people. Among these tasks we can find the help at mealtime, the maintenance of the living environment or also the conception and application of recreational activities destined for the public welcomed in the structures. This kind of activities is well known among our students because they were used to participate to the same kind of tasks during their professional experience in France. The placement should also permit a cultural and European openness thanks to some previous interventions about Europe and visits organized in the field of which the Memorial of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The responsibility of the project management is borne by at least four persons from the team of the MFR, of whom the director and two teachers who manage the trainings CAPA and BAC PRO SAPAT. However, all the teaching staff intervening within the class concerned by the mobility project knows pretty well the placement conditions thanks to one or several previous participations as supervisors in the project. As well, every teacher participates in the preparation of the mobility. The stability of the MFR’s teaching staff represents one of its main assets in the perpetuation of this mobility. Another asset is our partnership with the structures that welcome our students for their professional experiences since 2006. What’s more these links keep reinforcing since that time.
We hope this mobility will be the opportunity for every beneficiary to develop his/her professional and personal competences as well as citizen commitment for his/her future life. The MFR la Saillerie, recognized for several years as an establishment oriented towards Poland, wishes to pursue this process of mobility both for future students and for partner organisms in order to recognize and enhance these exchanges of interpersonal skills and knowhow.
