EUROMETIERS REGION CENTRE 2014
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: May 31, 2016
The stakeholders of this project were not only the participants (high school students, apprentices and young graduates coming from regional specialty traineeships) but also the vocational schools, the training institutes for apprenticeship, the companies and the Conseil Regional Centre.
In fact, the “EuroMétiers Région Centre 2014” project aimed at 534 beneficiaries (303 high school students, 148 apprentices, 85 young graduates from apprenticeship) who did 2 to 41 weeks professional work placement in companies in 20 European countries.
This project, which was borne by the Conseil Régional du Centre-Val de Loire, united the projects of 37 vocational schools in the region, 7 CFA training institutes for apprentices and 12 CFA training institutes for apprentices for young graduates throughout the territory. The project was subject to group management (consortium).
These schools and training institutes represented a variety of sectors and meet objectives sought out by the Region: opening the sectors up and using them for territorial dynamic and development.
On the one hand, this project was based on regional partnership (with a regional mobility committee) and on the other hand it was based on transnational partnership. The committee, made up of and powered by public and private partners, encourages the greatest possible consistency between all the regional mobility initiatives. Corresponding to the reality of the field’s needs, the committee’s role for the program is: to determine its broad guidelines, to provide support for its establishment, follow-up, control, evaluation and valorization.
Finally, the EuroMétiers Région Centre 2014 project was based on network partners and companies whose role was is to welcome, integrate and train the beneficiaries.
This project relied on regional drive and energy. It addressed the training institutes mounting interest in transnational mobility actions which are aimed at encouraging beneficiaries to integrate the working world.
The project corresponded to regional strategic orientation aimed at increasing qualification levels so as to encourage young people’s vocational integration and social inclusion, particularly through mobility efforts. On this basis, it reinforced and completed, by means of its vocation dimension, other regional mobility measures.
EuroMétiers Région Centre project’s principal objective was to introduce students/apprentices to a different or even complementary way of working and to reinforce and develop a student’s professional skills all within a European context. The goal was also to help students/apprentices to acquire language skills and encourage cultural and social open-mindedness. The aim was to encourage their integration in the labour market.
In addition, the project set its sights on promoting and valorizing the opportunities for work-linked vocational training as well as to advance training content and practices by taking into account a European context. Consequently and via a student’s feedback and sharing of experience, a company can benefit from the know-how and best practices of a European enterprise.
Another purpose was to increase a regional company’s competiveness especially that of small and medium sized businesses, and to develop the region’s economic base thanks to a young person’s acquisition of complementary experience and professional skills. The program also set out to expand language practices in order to facilitate sharing know-how during a European work placement.
Finally, the EuroMétiers Région Centre project helped to improve the quality of relationships between training institutes, companies, social partners and other organizations throughout Europe.
Implementation of this project took place from June2014 (in terms of the target group: first departures, candidate selection and start of the intensive language & cultural training courses) to May 2016 (return of the last beneficiaries).
