Mobilité en Europe : connectés malgré nos différences
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Any form of placement abroad is a source of personal enrichment and contributes to the personal growth of individuals. The earlier the ability to be mobile is developed by a student, the more fruitful it will be. Thus the policy of our institution is crucial in providing that taste for mobility. In order to avoid unemployment or inequalities, we must offer our youth the opportunity to get professional integration at a European level and provide them with additional assets thanks to these placements abroad. There are 15 participants committed to this project; they are engaged into a professional career for either short or medium term. From BTEC National courses, sales, commerce and fashion, they will be soon part of the workforce.To set up this project, we would work as a team throughout the school year. The different steps to complete the project are scheduled from September to June.- meetings between the teaching and management teams in order to ratify the selection criteria of the project. - meetings with the different parts (parents, students, teaching and management teams) to present the terms of the stay. - preparatory work of students under the supervision of the teachers ( Cv’s, cover letters, web quests on the host country, dictionary, role-plays). - first contacts with our partners in order to organize placements in accordance with the training goals of the participants. - logistics are then provided for transportation, accommodation and cultural visits in order to offer a pleasant stay.- the fact that the teachers are staying with the students for a while as well as the bonds that unite both parts take part in dealing with the participants'needs.To meet the aims of the specific training in vocational courses, we need to focus on many aspects:- educational aspect : this training period working with a company from a different European Union country will allow them to get a "European section" distinction in accordance with the objectives of the diploma.- professional aspect : this “European section" distinction” will help our students when entering workforce. Indeed, companies are increasingly looking for employees who have had an experience abroad and able to respond to professional mobility. Thus they will have had experience adapting to different ways of working with foreign European companies.- cultural and human aspect : the mere fact that students have accepted to leave their native country, to integrate both on professional and relational levels, is evidence of an open mind and open spirit. This is essential for young people hoping to live and work in Europe. The immersion in a foreign and different country together with sharing activities and exchanges in their daily lives will provide them with an enriching experience, personal growth and awareness of their European citizenship.Learning from moving is thus a major means to provide our youth to develop their knowledge as well as their professional, linguistic, and cultural skills. It also develops a sense of European identity and widen their geographical frame for a better adaptability.
