Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project of our catering school insists on the importance of our European partner network and is historically oriented to Europe and the International destinations. The final aim is to increase the employment opportunities for our students in the cookery and catering industry. This project concerns students preparing the equivalent of the BTECH in cooking and service and young graduates from less than a year. Activity 1: The students preparing their BTECH with a European option subject ( 24 students displayed in 3 classes, so 96 students can improve their professional skills as well as their linguistic cultural and personnal skills thanks to an 8 week training period in one of our european hotel partners. Our network created in 2004 counts now 15 high standards hotels in Scotland Ireland and Estonia. The students are undergoing a 3 year course Btech in cooking or service and soon a 2 years course BTECH in service. Two mobility sessions are planned each year (september 2016, mars 2017, september 2017, march 2018) . To ensure fairness among the students (chefs and waiters) and to meet our partners expectations, the selection of trainees is well balanced. The short term goals are to obtain the Europass ,the cambridge certificate and pass their BTECH with the European distinction thanks to the points given by the Mobility optional exam. Our activities are in 4 chapters: a linguistic chapter with English lessons and DNL, a cultural chapter with european citizenship awareness and an introduction to the cultural specificities of our european partners. A professionnal chapter to improve our students' skills in the catering industy and a personnal chapter to developpe autonomy and the adaptability of the students. The students are welcome by our partners or providers collaborating with the coordinators. The teachers and tutors oversee the students each week to guide them into their vocational training. Teachers from our school are sent on a mission to the different European destinations to make the training assessments. They also take advantage of their visit to perpetuate the partnerships and negotiate the future placements of the following students. The European financing as well as the grants from the region, the school, the partners and the families guaranties the same opportunities for all students and ensures the quality of the work placements. The local press, internet and the general inspectorate of education help in promoting our professional high school diploma field thanks to which 100% of the students are graduated with their BTECH and most of them continue their studies. Activity 2: It consists in 1 European and international mobility of five months , offered to young graduates from less than a year of business of the hotel and catering holders of a CAP , Professional Bac or Technological Bac . They are enrolled in a complementary local initiative training : adaptation to the hotel trades in Europe and internationally . Our students come from the Paris region, Province and some of foreign origin and mostly come from modest backgrounds , one of them has a slight handicap. They require financial and logistical support , our goals are to prepare our particiapants to adapt to various situations rewarding . The goal is to promote their social and professional integration and place them in a training process throughout life. At our institution , our involvement in European and international programs is seen against the axis of our school project " European and international openness ." This international dimension is likely to develop our attractiveness both in recruitment and employability and thus to contribute to the excellent reputation of our training and the external projection of our school .

It is thanks to the network 's actions proposed mobility can be realized , the various possible destinations are a real strength of attractiveness . In order to coordinate our actions and sustain our partnership , we hold an annual meeting during which we define our lines of action. The mobilities will take place in September , during five months , the first four weeks , the trainees will follow a preparation in order to prepare him for his probationary period. For the next 18 weeks , students will be placed in hotels , tracking these being provided jointly by the sending school, the host school and the internship tutor.
