Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Anne-Veaute Vocational high school hosts about 600 students and apprentices; we provide trainings from levelV (NVQ 1 / 2)to level III (higher BTECH diplomas) in the areas of paramedical and services: Trade, Reception and Relationship to Costumers, Health and Social Care, Orthotics and Prosthetics, and Optics. So the students involved in the placements abroad are mainly students in 2nd year or third year BTEC Diploma either studying in Health and social care, Reception, trade or Prosthetics. They are mostly from disadvantaged social backgrounds and the prospect of an internship in a European country is an extra motivation to their training. European mobility allows candidates to gain maturity and autonomy from the position held, which is profitable to their professional and personal development, as they are in contact with different professional cultures and techniques. We are planning a mobility of 24 participants for the period 2015-2017 which means 12 students per year, in Spain, Italy, Ireland and Germany Before going to placements abroad, participants benefit from specific training in cultural and linguistic skills. For actual placements, they are supervised by two of the Erasmus – Europe team, who give them the appropriate advice on the spot. The teaching team involved in the exchanges is in contact with the partners of the host country (high schools). In some cases, we go to meet the persons in charge to develop new partnership or to consolidate the contacts we already have. During the placements, we permanently remain in contact with our school partners, Europe coordinators, tutors to make sure everything goes smoothly. At the end of work placements, the vocational teacher together with the language teacher go to meet the tutors in order to assess the trainees over the period. (Europass and professional assessment chart) What is expected from this experience, is that students can become more autonomous, aware of professional know-how and get really involved in their training, being responsible citizens able to share their experience with peers and families. Finally, this project brings together positive energies, leads to new teaching practices and enhances the image of Anne Veaute High School, at the school level but also with the families institutions, town council, etc. More generally, as far as young people are concerned, to a certain extent it helps to give meaning to the concept of the European Union.
