FRECHE II PROJECT SUMMARY 2015-2017 FRECHE II PROJECT FRECHE: European Collaborative Network Training for Quality Hospitality, second edition. OBJECTIVES: Placing 64 hospitality students in European establishments for an acquisition of professional, linguistic, intercultural and behaviour skills in order to assist their professional integration. DURATION: 24 months from 06/01/2015 to 06/01/2017. MANAGEMENT: Pilot committee: 2 headmasters, 1 overseer, 1 manager, 8 language and professional education professors, 4 agents, 3 secretaries, 1 highly experienced coordinator (9 Leonardo). PARTICIPANTS: 2 determined groups: September – October 2015 et 2016 (Graduating professional BAC chefs and waiters, 7 weeks) It is of dire necessity that they gain experience moving around in order to ensure their professional and language proficiency as well as gaining other skills while being true European citizens who can immerse themselves in local cultures as future European workers. It is also essential that the students realize the benefits of gaining work experience abroad. They will be discovering and analysing a new culture through immersion and a quality support program and encountering local young people through European partners which will help them acquire intercultural experience and behaviour essential to their ultimate satisfaction. They need to master behaviour codes and language registers as well gain self-confidence in the work environment. The various beneficial professional, linguistic, cultural, professional, and personal factors make this an enriching experience that reinforces their skills and ensures their professional success. After our first successful project (2013-2014), the program would like to lean away from expertise to focus more on exchanges and European mobility in order to portray an attractive and enriching experience while using an international approach in teaching and educational practices. The initiation project depends largely on international openness and the installation of solid partners willing to facilitate students’ mobility in order to foster best practices among European teachers and make the most of the students’ training. Thus language is giving top priority (ETOILE label candidates, students are introduced to Cervantes, Cambridge et Goethe language certifications). We are registered in the touristic development of the Languedoc-Roussillon region where there is an increasing need for highly qualified hospitality professionals to meet growing needs in the tourism industry. PARTNERSHIPS: The project depends on quality partnerships among secondary schools, a university, various companies, and educational institutions that have experience hosting, training, supporting, and evaluating students. Hosting companies offer high quality service as intermediary establishments assuring connections. These top quality cultural environments allow an exceptional cultural preparation plan (i.e. saffron culture, Le Greco, Cervantès, Don Quichote in Toledo, Miró and Barceló in Palma, Dalí and Picasso in Catalonia, Guiness's distillery in Dublin, William the Conqueror and the hastings's battle...) DESTINATIONS: Spain: Toledo and Palma de Mallorca. Poland: Lublin. England: Eastbourne and Hastings. Ireland: Dublin. EVALUATION: We can ensure that we will achieve our anticipated results using post-mobility assessment meetings, questionnaires to be completed by students and companies, debriefing interviews, oral language exams, and specific exams conducted in european courses.
