Programme de formation professionnelle dans le domaine de la menuiserie L’Arbresle/Barcelone 2
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our application for an Erasmus+ mobility contract is based on the willingness of our centre to provide one of the richest professional educations to our students, in order for them to have the best possible opportunities of access to employment. Our project aims to expand the scope of work experience by wood sector students with the access to working life in another European country (Spain in this case). Therefore, the aims of this work placement are many: to help the future wood professionals to become independent, confident (both personally and professionally), open-minded and more versatile. Results can be measured in the classroom first, since our students often come back more skilled in their foreign language after work placements abroad, and __ clearly more independent after placements in France. These students, already motivated by their professional project, would like to improve their practice of the everyday Spanish language from contact with workers. These trainees are looking for everyday real situations. The needs of our students are not restricted to language practice, even if it is at the core of their profession. They also concern the discovery of different work methods carried out in Spain in order to enrich their own practice. We would like to prepare a 24-month Erasmus+ project in order to create two groups of participants. Indeed, two classes of wood, one of Terminale students (Upper Sixth) and the other of 1ère de BAC students (Lower Sixth) are concerned by the project. We would like to enroll 2 students for the first work placement during the 2015/ 2016 school year and then 4 students for the 2016/ 2017 sc2hool year in Barcelona, in the Autonomous Community of Catalogne (Spain). Our project features a two-stage mobility. First, an exchange project that will already take place in may 2015, with the reception in L'Arbresle, of wood students from the L'Escola del Treball (a Professional Education Centre in Barcelona). These students will be incorporated into our centre's programmes for a week, with the setting up of an adapted to French teaching; and then, the students will be a placement at company for three weeks. Afterwards, the second exchange will have the same conditions, with the reception of Lycée Barthélémy Thimonnier Wood students during the 2015/ 2016 and 2016/ 2017 school years in Barcelona. The reception centres will be the Frapont ebenisteria y carpinteria in Barcelona Regarding the management of the project, a work group has been established in order to run it. This group is composed of the Lycée management staff, the Spanish teacher and the teacher in charge of the wood sector and it will regularly meet until the project's closure. The expected effects of this project are: ⁃ To increase and improve the work technique, ___ language competence and our student's integration into working life. ⁃ To increase our centre's prestige in the eyes of local and regional companies. ⁃ To improve relations with the collaborators of the project. ⁃ To increase teachers and students' cultural knowledge about the chosen country i.e. Spain. ⁃ To understand the meaning of being “European”: tolerance of other cultures and customs and participation in European integration.
