European Celtic Experience
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Our project focuses on two of our sections:
- A class of Professional Baccalauréat ELEEC (Electricity, Energy & Communicating Equipments)
- A class of Professional Baccalauréat CSR (Restaurant Service and Marketing)
In each class, 4 students studying English as their first language are selected to take part in the project.
Since 2004, the Baccalauréat ELEEC is a European section. This includes two weekly additionnal English classes for a bilingual electrotechnics course taught by the technical teacher and the language teacher who work together.
It is the same for the Baccalauréat CSR : a European class since September 2011, this section provides students with weekly additionnal English classes including 2 hours of vocationnal practice taught by the technical teacher and the language teacher who work together. Thus, part of the hospitality curriculum is taught in English in the school restaurant.
The objective of the project is to put the students of these two sections in contact with European professional realities in order to increase their motivation and improve their language, vocationnal and cultural skills. The point is to make them aware of the wide prospects of their trades and of the wide job opportunities that the European Community is now providing.
Our partnership with Omagh South West College allows us to offer our students work placements in Northern Ireland. This touristic area features high standard hotels and also offers constant industrial development. Both interesting openings for our students.
During our previous projects, contacts were made and partners and business offers have been tested. South West College in Omagh maintains a special relationship with us and is attentive to our needs and our team work since 2004 have always been highly profitable.
We aim to increase our students' professional experience in order to increase their employment opportunities.
For this project, work placements will take place in May 2015. This time of the year corresponds to the beginning of the professionnal season for touristic businesses. For electrical businesses it corresponds to the launching of new work orders.
