Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Notre Dame Du Roc High School is situated in La Roche Sur Yon in Vendée in France and it is a secondary school for initial vocational training in cooking, service in restaurant (in front of house), hotel business, bakery and pastry-making, clothes-making (clothing industry), as well as accounting-management, trade and welcoming users service.For many years now, our school has developped and broadened our contacts abroad and different partnerhips have been signed with foreign schools. This has enabled us to send regularly students for a training period abroad in foreign companies. In the next two years, for the actering Department, we hope to send 60 students (preparing a vocational or technological high school diploma) in Europe through our different partnerships composed of four catering schools in four different countries in the European Union which are situated in :- Guayente in Spain,- Carmarthen in Wales,- Krems in Austria,- Namur in Belgium.The different branches of industry in catering, hotel business, bakery and pastry-making, as well as clothes-making (clothing industry for entertainment) provide a tremendous opportunities of jobs in different European countries, jobs for which employers need a qualified staff. Our school is constantly aiming at develloping this aspect with its different foreign partners so that its students could benefit from a long-term integration in these branches of indusrty.Relatin to the vocational school (accounting-management, trade and welcoming users service), we would like to propose training periods in Ireland or England for 26 students, from the European Section (13 in the 2nd year and 13 in the 3rd year). We also want to send 12 students in Sapin (Madrid or malaga). We will sign a welcoming contract with our main partner (Destination Mobilités) which will be in charge of finding companies, welcoming families and dealing with the needed support for the students during their training period.The purposes we develop with our different partnerships are the following :- Using foreign languages as a tool to communicate in a professional way : tourism is the first economy source in our region, so it is necessary for the students applying for a job to master the English language skills, more particularly for students in catering, accounting-administration, trade and welcoming users service. Young students from our region must be the ambassadors and must promote our county to develop the economic potential while acomodating the new strains of the local and international labour markets nowadays, - Favouring the practising of foreign gastronomy and promoting and handing down the values of French gastronomy and cuisine,- Strengthening the professional abilities and skills (concerning the jobs in catering and clothes-making, as well as accounting-management, trade and welcoming users service),- Favouring the synergy between our different trainings (catering, clothes-making and trade).All these training periods spent abroad are validated by an assessment with an official assessment grid and an official placement certificate. The trainee must also make all the different activities reported then in an internship report and they could be set out during the exams.In the longer term, we have noticed that some of our former students who went for a training period abroad have gone back to the host country where they perfomed (or in another foreign country). All of them told us that the Leonardo or Erasmus+ Programmes enabled them to broaden their mind and offered them future prospects for their personal and professional life they had not considered before.Finally, it is an obvious fact for us that establishing and implementing the principle of cofinancing (the school, families and the European Union through Erasmus + Programme) allows to give a sense of responsability to each actor of this partnership.
