Mobilité professionnelle dans un pays anglophone
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: May 31, 2016
Context and project summary :
Our school plan at Jean Mermoz aims at promoting geographical and professional mobility for pupils taking part in a European section and preparing a vocational certificate in management and administration.
Motivation is a key element for our selected pupils to take advantage of a five-week language and professional-oriented stay in Dublin, Ireland (one week in a language school and four weeks in work placement). This stay is organized and managed by an organization chosen by our school. This stay allows them to develop the skills required to pass their exams and to get the Europass and the label "European section" on their diploma.
Number and profile of the participants :
There are usually 10 participants ages 17 to 20 for each mobility. They can sometimes come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
We can notice a predominance of girls within this section. Self-willed and motivated, these pupils sometimes leave France for
the first time. They are eager to know other horizons. They are aware of what this mobility can bring them in term of cultural opening, control of the English language, and personal enrichment.
