Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In 2003, thanks to a Comenius partnership project and the cities twinned with Merignac, we started the European projects with our school. 11 years ago, we sent some students on training periods to Ireland using the service of some intermediary organization. Unfortunately the placements did not come to our expectations and as a public school it did suit us to pay a placement organization. So the coordinator asked the European colleagues to become partners for the placements abroad. In each school, a referent teacher places in her/his country our students in the companies they know. In turn, we do the same and place their students. This partnership works really well and today we send at least 25 students every year in 10 different countries: Germany, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Scotland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Turkey, Finland and Italy. These students come from both departments, administrative and industry to respect the balance. The impact on the students is very positive. The project creates changes and brings value to the diploma. It favors the autonomy of the students who must leave the parents’ home and must put a foot into everyday life. We have excellent results, apart from the benefits mentioned above, we managed to create a good balance between the industry and administrative departments which used to work on their own, students as well as teachers. Moreover, added to this project we’ve run a Leonardo PROEF for the staff for the past 3 years. 22 teachers and administrative staff have already been on a training placement for 1 week in the same partners’ school than the Leonardo FPI (students) and in turn have experienced different working methods. So today we have fulfilled our 1st objective which is to find a place for our school into Europe, as far as students and teachers are concerned and thanks to reciprocity we can welcome the students and teachers from our partners’ school and so we have found a position for our school in Europe!
