Search for European Projects

Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The consortium is led by the "Maison de l’Europe des Yvelines" (MdEY) and helped by two other members: "l'Association Nationale des Missions locales" (l'ANDML), "l'Association des Directeurs de Missions Locales du 78" (l'ADML78) who pool their knowledge and their experience of mobility management, serving youths in vocational training, to develop their staff and their structure to another dimension: the European work market. Objectives: For students of Vocational Training - Provide opportunities for SFP youths to find their place in society through professional integration, to give hope through a better understanding of their abilities and regain self-esteem through better adaptability to the economic environment. - Get real professional skills and become employable. - Acquire "more baggage" that gives meaning to their professional, social and cultural life. For Supervisors: - Acquire methods, tools and know-how to contribute to the development of young people to complete a successful mobility period. - Supporting young people's vocational training in their mobility project - Recognition of the mobility’s specifications to give it proper recognition and real value with the young people. We offer, for 24 SFP youths, a 3 months training period in 3 European countries. This programme runs over a two year period and can be completed in the following countries: United Kingdom, Ireland and Finland. Four departures will be organised in groups of 6 youths to better organise the training prior to departure. We offer an internship of 15 days to supervisors in 6 European countries: Spain, Bulgaria, Ireland, United Kingdom, Finland and Germany. The periods are chosen based on availability of supervisors. This is actually an individualised career plan since these participants can also choose the host country and the type of business in which they want to do their internship. To understand this issue we must not forget that if the targeted public is fixed, we do not actually know each individual personally since we are not a schooling organisation and do not know the participants before the selection is started. The profile of beneficiaries: For SFP: youths selected in the Missions Locales, are highly motivated ,available, registered as trainees in vocational training, willing with a real personal project to fulfil. For supervisors: motivated and willing, they have an undeniable desire to evolve in their careers and to help their structure to progress to a new dimension, particularly a European one. Description of participant’s activities SFP: Harnessing the professional internship in companies by sector of activity, deepen linguistic knowledge (prior to departure and during the course if necessary) and be able to take advantage of this wonderful cultural and social experience which they are going to benefit from. Supervisors: Recognise, identify and discuss the work practices of social inclusion structures of other countries. It is very important for us to share and exchange these procedures, by adopting and making others adopt them. For immersion quality we advocate only accommodation with host families and we also organise 3 or 4 cultural visits. The methodology is that of rigor. The roles of each individual are determined by agreement between the consortium members who make up the Directing Committee, our partner companies and also the beneficiaries of the mobility. All are bound by a signed agreement. Impact: We have already measured this impact with the last mobility projects we with different Leonardo programmes. The after effects are very important on a local, regional and national level. The MdEY is by nature a structure dedicated to Europe, which organises many youths and adults exchanges, we can certify that the impact of a mobility project is important. We have evidence from young people who, five years later, still talk about their experience and by the growing demands (20%) we receive. Mobility is less feared now than a few years ago, and it is recognized as a vector for success. Expected results Longer-term benefits. Thanks to the advertising work we carry out with all the members of the consortium it is clear that our structures will have more and more notoriety in this area, not for personal glory but for a real recognition of the added value of these European pathways. These EU programs help build the future of Europe and we are proud to be part of it.
