Mobilité des Apprenants de FOrmation Professionnelle en Europe
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Since 2006, significant progress has been made with regard to European vocational training mobility programmes in Burgundy, not only in terms of public but also in terms of number of beneficiaries.
Thanks to local and regional authorities, educational centers, employment agencies, stakeholders in vocational education and training, and of course the European Union, a great number of people have benefited from a work and professional based experience in Europe. This includes students, apprentices, high school students, trainees in vocational education and training, jobseekers, employees, and educational and training staff.
The mobility concerns however a number still restricted of beneficiaries , while the dynamic of professional integration by mobility experiences is an increasing request from candidates in search of development and of an improvement of their professional skills, but also from the employers who look for qualified workers with skills acquired and recognized internationally , which means a lot in terms of added value for the companies.
With the financial support from the Burgundy Region and the Erasmus + programme, we would like to enrich the professional training offer for learners from Burgundy ,as we are sure that professional internships in European companies is the good way to contribute to the objectives of the trainees and the educational, social and economic world. The MAFOPE project follows the APRECA dynamic since 2011 and continued in 2013, through the Leonardo programme that allowed more than 180 trainees to get a professional experience in Europe , 77 % of them having found a job in a period of 3 and 6 months after their internships.
MAFOPE will allow 100 trainees between 18 and 30 years old of the vocational training, to enrich their professional background with skills acquired during their professional mobility in Europe in 6 prioritary activitty sector in Burgundy: food processing industry, international business and marketing, chemistry and biology, tourism and hotel business, corporate services (Human resources, finance, accounting and administration), social and health care.
The trainees will get from August 2015, a 3 weeks (60 hours) language course followed by a 13 week professional internship in a European company, the programme ending in May 2017. It will help the professional integration of the trainees when they come back to Burgundy with these different objectives:
• Extension and improvement of professional and languages skills
• Application and improvement of their professional, personal and language capacities compared to others candidates who could not have this European experience.
• Hiring employers from Burgundy of competent workers who can participate in the development of their company.
• Implication of the different regional structures for training and employment, in a mobility European way, which leads on good results in professional insertion in the Burgundy region.
MAFOPE is looking for the involvement of the greater number of vocational education trainees in the European mobility process.
With the financial support of the Burgundy region and ERASMUS+, APRECA will coordinate the programme, offering the trainees an operational organization and a pedagogical follow up , allowing the best profit of their stay in Europe. The regional actors of the professional integration and of the employment will closely be associated to the programme at the beginning, during and at the end of the stay, for the selection of candidates, the intercultural preparation, the evaluation and the help to find a job at the end of their internship.
Our European partners (Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece) are recognized in the transnational mobility process. They are all professionals of training, education and employment policies in their respective country..Their objectives are the same as APRECA. They will assure, in association with their companies network, the logistic and the operational management of the programme.
The evaluation of the programme, its valorisation and the dissemination of the results will be made by APRECA, the Burgundy Region and all the regional actors of vocational training and employment, the role of every partner being clearly defined in its own area of competences.
