The mobility project “European mobility: A tool of professional and social inclusion” promoted by Léo Lagrange Méditerranée offers a six or eight-week work experience abroad. We are working with partners in England, Spain, Germany and Italy who maintain contact with any branch of industry. The majority of work placements are to be found in the field of commerce and tourism/hotel industry. Our project is aimed at apprentices or vocational students aged between 18 and 30 years, who possess at most secondary school qualifications and completed their apprenticeship not more than one year ago. In general, this target group is unfamiliar with the concept of mobility due to its specific characteristics (low qualification, low autonomy, lack of experiences abroad and foreign language skills). Hence, the participants will need intensive assistance and a special preparation. Léo Lagrange is closely working with institutions aimed at supervising young adults’ efforts to find an employment. The selection process of candidates takes place in agreement with all the partners (in France and abroad) in order to guarantee a suitable placement adapted to the profile of each candidate. Their preparation before the departure constitutes an essential element of the success of the project. This period permits uttering expectations and doubts, defining learning targets, reflecting on the concept of interculturality, obtaining information about the host country and improving language skills.
Thanks to their work experience abroad the participants are able to explore a different working environment, improve their language skills and operate in an intercultural context. They develop their social and behaviour skills and increase their employability. Moreover, the project helps facilitate professional insertion and build European citizenship.
