Higher education student and staff mobility project
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

As part of the Bachelor’s Degree in Restaurant Management curriculum at FERRANDI Paris, a 3-year training course preparing for a RNCP level II qualification, our students have to do a mandatory internship abroad, from 5 to 6 months in an English-speaking country or in a country where the language at work is English. Our 2015 project planned 25 internship mobilities: we selected 25 candidates over the 50 students involved in this programme. There were 17 girls and 8 young men who were between 19 and 26 years old. 16 of them went to the United Kingdom, 5 to Malta, 1 in Spain, 1 to Portugal, 1 to Ireland and 1 to Denmark. This work placement, listed in the educational curriculum of FERRANDI Paris, mainly aims to ensure the practical application of the courses provided at the school. It allows the student to develop his/her knowledge in a professional context. The main objective of the internship is to give students the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills taught at school. It is an essential immersion in the professional environment. The following skills are put into practice and developed during the internship: • Communicate in English in a professional setting, • Practice food and beverage service technique, • Respect protocol and service etiquette, • Respect sanitary and security regulations, • Analyze sales, manage stocks, request production costs, • Develop sense of responsibility, • Take initiatives, • Play a real role in the running of the business.
