A pre-professional and cultural week with professional, cultural and historical visits or around the theme of sustainable development will precede the students’ work experience . The project’s partner companies are European retailers (Tesco, Cora and Leclerc ) and a charity shop selling Fair Trade and organic farming products (Oxfam).The students will work as sales assistant trainees in the different outlets and will undertake professional tasks linked with the educational frame of reference of their training : management of a department, organization of the products offered, sales and customers loyalty. They will be monitored and assessed by the host companies’ tutors and their French teachers, one of them being specialized in the professional field, on each point of sales according to the exam national grids that have been translated either in French or in Spanish . The tutor will also complete and sign a Europass for each beneficiary and the document will be handed over to the students during the official ceremony that will take place at the end of the school year.
